Drag-Out Reduction Techniques Using Barrel Blow-Down and DSC Dip-Spin-Tilt Technology

Increasing demand for water and stringent new legislation to limit the discharge of effluent is taking place in many areas worldwide. Equipment innovations that reduce water usage and minimize the quantity of chemicals discharged into the environment as treated effluent and sludge have been installed in several state-of-the-art modern electroplating barrel machines that incorporate centrifuge post-treatment systems. The innovations will also supply attractive cost benefits by reducing drag-out.
