NAME

Laboratory and pilot plant for surface finishing by electrochemical technologies

DESCRIPTION

Fully equipped laboratory for (electro)chemical processes with electrochemical cells of different volumes (up to 10 L), Hull cells, potentiostat-galvanostats, direct and pulse current rectifiers, dip-coating, spray-coating, glove box, thermostatic baths, controlled atmosphere sintering furnaces, ICP, IC, Z potential and TOC, among other equipment.
Semi-industrial pilot plant for (electro) chemical surface finishing that consists of:
• Tanks up to 250 L capacity with several heaters, cooling coil, mechanical agitation, air agitation, the possibility to place counter-electrodes in different positions, level probe, lid and suction hood.
• DC and pulse rectifiers capable of applying a wide a range of voltage/current.
• Electrochemical simulation and modelling software (COMSOL Multiphysics) that allows understanding, optimizing, and controlling electrodeposition processes.
• Planned to acquire a monitoring and control software for the electrochemical pilot plant that facilitates the connectivity of the plant with a MES (Manufacturing Execution System) from which the manufacturing plant of the components as a whole will be managed.
Moreover, surface characterization laboratory that allows the analysis of the physical, mechanical and chemical properties of coatings (roughness, morphology, microstructure, thermography, corrosion, wear, tribocorrosion, hardness, wettability, brightness, colour, etc.).
