A high-quality metal cleaning (pretreatment) and the appropriate enameling are essential for the durability of finished products. Methods for pretreatment vary depending on the material to be enameled, the enamel to be used and the desired properties of the resulting finish. Pretreatment of a metal surface includes chemical cleaning primarily. Rinse water quality and proper rinsing are as critical, yet often-over-looked step in the enameling process. A well designed, lean cleaning and rinsing process can help improve product quality, thru-put, and higher profits! This presentation focuses mainly on the chemical cleaning (pretreatment). It will enable you to make smart decisions in the selection, design, installation, and upgrade of an existing pretreatment system. It will highlight topics including soils, substrates, cleaners, rinsing, new trends in cleaning, and the means to verify the cleaning and rinsing effectiveness. Process automation, safety, troubleshooting, and preventative maintenance of process equipment will also be covered.
