Portable device to count the number of thin metal sheets in a stack

We manufacture various grades of electrolytic Tin plated and Tin-free Steel sheets.These sheets are stacked in a pile, packaged and then dispatched to customers.

more

Conversion of Ferrous Chloride into Ferric Oxide

One of our pickling processes in which we use HCl to pre-treat the metal surface and remove unwanted surface impurities like rust etc., generates a considerable quantity of Spent Pickle Liquor (SPL)
