What is the process for Pickle and Oil?



(-----) 2004

I am trying to add Pickle and oil to my Zinc plating shop.

I am wondering what the process for Pickle and Oil is. Clean - Rinse - Hydrochloric Acid - rinse- oil ( dip or spray; hot or cold?) Any information would help.

Sincerely;

Electro clean, rinse hydrochloric acid, rinse, 15 - 20 min in alkaline zinc plating solution. No current in the zinc solution just let the barrel rotate in there. then rinse the parts off in a caustic rinse with a ph of around 5. then dry the parts. then dip in an oil that should be specified by your customer.

Is it true that there are two Pickle and Oil process commonly used, electro and mechanical? What are the pro's and con's of each?

Thanks,
