Dedicated Stainless Steel Welding Area and Citric Passivation

For clients who require stainless steel welding services for sanitary process piping in industries such as chemical, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical, Optimation’s shop includes a 9,075-square-foot space for stainless-steel. The space provides a haven for all aspects of the stainless steel fabrication process, such as handling, grinding, welding, and storage.

In shops that handle both carbon and stainless steel, activities such as handling stainless on a steel work bench, grinding steel in an adjacent bay, or lifting the stainless with steel lifting hardware can all introduce contamination, and Optimation has taken steps to avoid these common pitfalls. Adjacent to stainless steel welding is a citric passivation area.With these areas dedicated to stainless steel and extra attention paid to the process, we reduce the contamination risk and can now provide our clients with a higher quality product.
