The Reclamation Service
Our salvage and reclamation service is second to none. Our expertise in this field enables us to offer advice from the beginning as to the viability of salvage and the method to adopt. "Down times" are expensive and we are tuned to respond immediately to a breakdown situation. Rapid turnaround times are often required, and every effort is made to keep down times to a minimum.
Methods of Salvage fall into two main categories:
Strip and re-plate
This involves anodically removing the original chrome coating, polishing up base material to remove damage or rust ingression, and replating. This method reclamation is by no means perfect but more often than not proves extremely effective. Cost and speed of turnaround is frequently the determining factor in opting for this type of process.
Heavy deposit salvage
This procedure is adopted when the damage is too severe to contemplate the previous method. Where possible price can be given before commencement. The modus operandi usually followed involves re-centering, grinding between centres to remove damaged areas, then heavy deposit hard chrome plating to an oversize condition and re-grinding between centres back to original size.
Although turnaround can be slower, deliveries of 7 to 10 days are the norm.
