Polypropylene barrel is designed for electroplating coatings of small parts in bulk and can be used as a part of a carriage with barrel rotation driver. Usually it is used in automatic
electroplating lines. As well as polypropylene barrel can be a can be a part of barrels bath. All components of the barrel are made of polypropylene.
Polypropylene construction ensures a high degree of resistance to corrosive environments and high temperatures. Barrel’s construction has Patent for an invention in Russia # 2122606.
The body frame consists of several perforated sections, held together by tie-laps. The end faces of barrels are two gear wheels, one of which is used as driven gear for rotation of the barrel.
If necessary, the wheels can be interchanged by rotating the barrel at 180 degrees. For loading and unloading details to/from the barrel one the wheels contains a removable lid. The barrel can be used for the most technological processes with operating temperatures up to 80 C.
The barrel should not be subjected to long-term (more than one hour) solutions, exposure aggressive to polypropylene and titanium: nitric acid solutions with a concentration more than 10% at temperatures above 200° C; chromic acid solutions; chromate solutions; hydrofluoric acid solutions; concentrated sulfuric acid.
The ability of using the barrel in a particular solution you can check with the Poliplast experienced professionals.
