Nitty Gritty - Stainless Steel Weld Cleaning, Polishing and Marking Machine
Nitty Gritty Clinox System offers an Advanced range of Weld Cleaning Machines and accessories
widely used for Surface cleaning and finishing of Stainless Steel, Weld Polishing, Passivation,
Pickling machines for Electro-chemical marking.
The Nitty-Gritty Clinox line is the most complete and advanced pickling machine range in today’s market. Based on inverter technology, every single one of our Clinox machines controls the flow of current, ensuring optimal working conditions on any surface and preventing irreparable damage to your stainless steel.
All Clinox pickling machines can perform both pickling and passivation to find the best result. Pickling is the process of removing ferric oxide, which is the typical blue, or bronze, brown Colour of steel, to protect the steel’s appearance and prevent corrosion. Passivating is the process of restoring your stainless steel’s chromium oxide layer to protect it from corrosion.
When applying a unique finish to steel, weld polishing requires extra caution. The polishing process is crucial for two major reasons: first, it evens out the surface of the stainless steel after pickling, and second, it enhances and optimizes the steel passivation process.
The process of neutralization helps to initiate the passivation process by halting the activity of the pickling chemical and restoring the pH to its original neutral state. Inox Fit, a chemical solution created by Nitty-Gritty, is sprayed on after the pickling process to activate thisprocedure.
