Walter Surfox™ Mini Weld Cleaning System
- Unit Price
The ideal unit for field or repair work
The ergonomically designed SURFOX MINI™ comes equipped with a variable power setting that ensures a perfect finish on even the most delicate surfaces. This unit utilizes refillable electrolyte cartridges instead of an integrated tank to reduce the weight and increase portability. Excellent for use on repairs, touch-ups and small jobs. This newly redesigned unit can clean TIG or spot welds on stainless steel and MIG, TIG or spot welds on aluminum. It can also mark stainless steel, aluminum and titanium surfaces with the use of a SURFOX marking kit.
Stainless steel is naturally able to resist corrosion thanks to a passive chromium oxide layer that forms on its surface. The formation of this protective layer is called passivation. Abrasion or excessive heat (caused by welding) will destroy this protective layer and expose the metal to corrosion. In order to fully restore the corrosion resistance of stainless steel, heat tint and other surface contaminants must be removed. SURFOX is a safe, effective and fast electrochemical cleaning system. The rate of cleaning welds with this system is between 3-5 feet per minute. The SURFOX system combines both the cleaning power of electrical current and the passivation properties of electroyte cleaning solutions. Passivation begins instantly after the SURFOX electrochemical cleaning process is completed. It usually takes between 24 to 48 hours for passivation to be stable and complete.
