1) Identify & Inspect Plates

Once plates arrive for refurbishment they are identified and logged. All gaskets are then carefully removed from the plates.

2) Chemical Cleaning

The plates are chemically cleaned. Firstly they are immersed in an alkali bath followed by an acid bath.

5) Ultraviolet Inspection

Each individual plate is tested using ultraviolet lighting to detect pinholes and fine cracks within the plate. Visual inspection also takes place at this stage to identify any wear, pitting or channel deformation.

6) Gasket & Plate Assembly

Following inspection, new gaskets are clipped or bonded to the refurbished plates. Appropriate adhesives are used where required. All plates are clamped to ensure correct alignment and if necessary, oven cured.
