Topic: Dragout Control

The various shapes and large quantities of material being processed make it
extremely important to control solution dragout. Where required, unique
wiper systems, brushes and air blow-offs are used to minimize solution
losses. Our patented, chemically resistant wiper system wicks solution
off the product, allowing it to be drained back into the process. The
resiliency of the wiper material allows it to automatically adjust to
changes in thickness of the material being plated without springs or
manual adjustments.

Air knives and brushes are also utilized to enhance the removal of solution. Carefully controlled pressures deliver just the right amount of air to remove solution without drying, staining or passivating the part surfaces. All methods prevent "back spray" and reduce cross-contamination. This careful control of dragout results in more precise process control and reduced rinse water and chemical consumption.
