The only way we get around such problems is to place the work from the barrel around the edge of the spin drier so that it is not suddenly forced to the edge when the drier starts. We also start the drier gradually so that it reaches its maximum rpm more slowly. Most of the scratching occurs in the start up phase. Also don't run the drier too hot as this can damage the black chromate layer. We turn it down to 50 degrees C.

Hi Craig, One effective way to reduce scratching is to dump the barrel into the drying baskets *before* the rinsing step.. then, using your hoist, dip the basket into a drum of water with a hose running into it at the desired rinse rate. I have found that by doing this, the greatest amount of scratching is eliminated. Also, the scratches you do see after drying may "heal" somewhat over time. Set some aside and look at them later.
