A major US manufacturer of water heaters recently tested EPS-processed hot rolled for their tanks. Although EPS is predominantly a complete acid pickling replacement, they wanted to determine if using EPS would allow them to eliminate the dry shot blasting step they perform prior to applying a heavy porcelain enamel coating that lines the tank.
Good news! By using EPS they found they can eliminate the dry shot blasting operation altogether. This offers savings in both cost and cycle time, and leads to a more efficient, cleaner, quieter work environment.
