Company
Profile

Eco Pickled Surface, EPS, is a process that replaces acid pickling of flat rolled steel - carbon, and stainless and HSLA.. EPS removes mill scale from the surface of plate, coil and sheet using a completely environmentally friendly technology that is safe and completely harmless to the environment. Instead of caustic acids, EPS uses steel grit mixed with ordinary water and continuously recycles and re-uses these two process ingredients.

EPS technology typically replaces acid pickling, but can also be used to speed up acid pickling lines. That improves the economics of acid pickling.

 

EPS Processing lines have been installed and are operating around the world, including steel service centers in China, India, Korea and Mexico.

Slurry Blasting is at the core of Eco Pickled Surface steel pickling process. The slurry – a mixture of ordinary water and fine steel grit – is propelled onto the steel strip in a uniform stream that removes surface scale, but not the steel substrate. The extent of oxide removal is at least as thorough as acid pickling

EPS Coil Line

EPS Coil Line is an integrated pickling line for steel coils. In addition to pickling the steel witout hydrochloric acid, the EPS Coil Line improves material shape through tension leveling.

EPS Cells To Convert Acid Pickling Line

EPS steel processing is a  'mechanical' pickling of hot roll strip, making it a great solution for retrofitting existing hydrochloric acid pickling lines. Pickling tanks and their plumbing, venting and spent liquor storage can be removed, along with pre-wash and post rinsing units, and replaced with clean,compact,environmentally-friendly EPS.

EPS Cells for Replacing Acid Pickling Tanks

EPS Cells can be installed in an existing acid pickling line to increase its throughput. This is considered especially attractive for large acid pickle lines that are impractical to shut down for long periods of time.

EPS Stainless Steel Pickling

EPS pickling of stainless steel solves the problems of slower line speeds, the use of the more dangerous hydrofluoric acid and overall higher pickling costs.
