It is important to note that passivation is directly linked to cleanliness. If parts are dirty – especially oily – then the passivation process cannot occur. That’s why the majority of ACT cleaning systems and equipment includes pre-cleaning and rinsing stages ahead of the passivation stages.
ACT’s systems currently passivate to ASTM A380, ASTM A967, and AMS 2700. Many customers struggle to maintain NADCAP certifications when adopting a passivation process. ACT is skilled at providing data logging programming to simplify the NADCAP record keeping duties. Stage parameters can be automatically recorded by batch and either tied to the plant via SCADA or downloaded at the process line. From aerospace to food service, ACT can help you achieve process success with any passivation project.
