Building upon Astro Pak’s strong heritage in Passivation, Derouging and High-Purity & Precision Cleaning, the company announced today the recent addition of Mechanical Polishing and Electropolishing to their service offerings.
Having received a positive response for Mechanical Polishing and Electropolishing services from top pharmaceutical companies, Astro Pak expects major growth in this area. Astro Pak’s Owner and President Ken Verheyen affirmed, “Astro Pak is a trusted name. So when our top customers expressed the need for this service, it was only natural for Astro Pak to add these capabilities to serve our customers and exceed their expectations.”
Electropolishing achieves a microscopically smooth and featureless surface, enhancing the clean-ability and appearance of stainless vessels and their peripheral parts.
Electropolishing will be available on-site and at Astro Pak’s new location in Raleigh, North Carolina. Astro Pak’s on-site servicing helps to repair, maintain and upgrade the required surface-finish on the interior of production vessels. Astro Pak’s mobilization resources help to meet the needs for remediation efforts of any sized vessel. Whether damaged by chemical attack or by mechanical impact, Astro Pak’s specially trained crews work around the clock to restore process vessels to full functioning capability.
This new service offering will be overseen by Mike Montgomery, an expert craftsman who has dedicated his career to perfecting Mechanical Polishing and Electropolishing. “We are thrilled to have Mike on the team and to launch this new business venture” says Tim Sowell, Vice President of East Coast Operations. Montgomery will lead Astro Pak’s Electropolishing services from the new Electropolishing shop in Raleigh, North Carolina.
