Frequently Asked Questions

What is pyrolysis stripping and what is the difference from chemical stripping? 2017-12-10T11:51:01+00:00

Pyrolysis is considered the safest, most efficient and environmentally friendly method.
Jigs ,hooks ,rejects or parts needing re coating can be cleaned in a Pyrolysis Furnace. The temperature is set to increase slowly to approximately 420° C. The coatings continue to burn in an oxygen starved atmosphere while the afterburner oxidises the fumes. After a period of approximately six hours ,the goods are ready. Ash and any remaining residues are usually rinsed off the parts with high-pressure water. Pickling or the abrasive blasting process can follow the burn off process.
