Redesigned Heated Flow Systems

SIFCO ASC's redesigned TechnoFlow is engineered to give operators and technicians data logging capabilities as well as improved safety features.

The units are designed to work with SIFCO Process solutions that are best plated at an elevated temperature. The TechnoFlow 600 can hold over seven liters of solution, while the 1200 unit has a solution capacity of up to 12 liters. Both sizes contain no fuses and have internal circuit breakers as well as 24-volt finger-safe switches meeting UL and CE requirements.

One of the major improvements is the pump adapter plate providing better access to the frame mounting screws, making removing the large 14 GPM pump easier. Improvements have also been made to the pump connector plugs. The twist lock system provides a safe power connection, yet is easily removed when needed. Lastly, the TechnoPlate is now equipped with CPVC plumbing lines-providing both sizes a bypass filter-allowing technicians to change the filter mid-operation for large applications.

Derek Kilgore, SIFCO ASC's Engineering Manager, said: "As well as making the overall electroplating process more efficient and user friendly, we wanted to improve the safety features for operators, such as lids with an O-ring seal to decrease solution splash. The system is now equipped with a PID temperature controller with auto-tuning functions, resulting in less overshoot of the set temperature and has the ability to log temperatures throughout the operation for post plating review."

The TechnoFlow has been incorporated into SIFCO ASC's all-in-one plating system featuring dripless technology called the Advanced Solution Control System (ASCS).
