Put down the pickling paste

14 October 2015

Devon welding machine manufacturer, Inverter Fusion, has introduced a new electrolytic weld cleaning machine which is designed to eliminate the dangers of traditional weld cleaning methods.

The traditional ‘pickling paste’, primarily used to clean stainless steels after welding, is a combination of hydrofluoric acid and nitric acid which can not only cause serious burns, but also serious lung problems. Although it is used widely, the dangers involved are often overlooked. 

Inverter Fusion’s new Fusion Clean machine is an electrolytic cleaner which is said to be not only safer, but more convenient: the results are instantaneous, and the finish is impressive. And since it avoids the use of harsh toxic chemicals with their attendant storage, handling and disposal problems, the Fusion Clean machine also saves time and money.

Lightweight, portable and operator friendly, Fusion Clean is available in 240v and 110v versions and is housed in a sturdy toughened nylon case for protection, with fan cooling to achieve 100% duty cycles. Fusion Clean machines come complete with everything you need to start cleaning and are covered by a comprehensive 3-year warranty.
