Phosphate Machine

VIXEN SURFACE TREATMENTS MANUFACTURE PHOSPHATING MACHINES THAT MEASURE UP TO THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY TRENDS. ITS TEAM OF DESIGN EXPERTS STRIVE TO ENSURE THAT WE ONLY PRODUCE WORLD-LEADING PHOSPHATING MACHINES.

The Phosphate machine is front loading and comes in many sizes, varying from one to three metres in basket diameter. The basket is static and a boom rotates around this during phosphate washing. Machines have developed so that customers incur low running costs. A further benefit of Vixen’s phosphating machines it that they eradicate chlorinated solvent-related health and safety issues, with the added bonus of better paint adhesion.

All of Vixen's phosphating machines operate in a three-stage cycle: hot washing with a phosphate solution, hot rinsing and then hot passivation solution.

HOW MANY STAGES ARE INVOLVED IN A PHOSPHATING MACHINE?

Vixen’s phosphating machines consist of a 3-stage cycle and are used in conjunction with phosphating and passivate solutions. The 1st stage is a hot wash with phosphate solution. The 2nd stage is a hot rinse and the 3rd stage is hot passivation where the passivate is added to demineralised water.
