Precision Plus Adds Citric Passivation System

Precision Plus recently expanded its fleet of precision machining equipment and services with the installation of a JAYCO J8-1220-PRO Citric Passivation System. This state-of-the-art, fully automated passivation system allows for in-house, high-performance corrosion prevention and surface decontamination of the precision machined parts manufactured by Precision Plus. The addition of the passivation system will allow Precision Plus to have overall higher-quality control, lower production costs and shorter lead times.

"By bringing this system in-house, we will not only be able to provide our clients with a higher-quality product, but also quicker delivery of their precision machined components," said Ryan Nuhn, Sales Engineer and Estimator. "Rather than outsourcing this process to a third-party vendor, our team of manufacturing professionals will be part of the entirety of the production process every step of the way."

Traditional passivation systems utilize nitric acid solutions, but more recent trends that Precision Plus adheres to have transitioned to a greener, more cost-efficient chemical solution: citric acid.

"Citric passivation is the way of the future," said Michael P. Reader, Vice President of Engineering. "Studies have shown that it yields better results than nitric passivation with far lower acid concentrations. Citric Acid, found in lemons and limes, puts an emphasis on the acid's environmentally friendly impact it has on Precision Plus's efforts towards sustainability."

The new citric passivation system brings the investment in equipment by Precision Plus over the last three years to nearly $3 million.
