Electropolish Fire Fighting Equipment – Project Ongoing

ICS have been contracted by Frontline Fire and Rescue, who are the designers and manufacturers of Fire Appliances, Rescue Vehicles, Specialised Vehicles and purpose built trailers and equipment.

Our current, ongoing project with Frontline Fire and Rescue is to pickle and passivate stainless steel as per the following standards:

  • ASTM A380
  • ASTM A967

Once completed, the stainless steel is Electropolished to meet standard ASTM B912.

While most of our clients only opt to pickle and passivate their pipe stools, Frontline Fire and Rescue equipment looks fantastic polished, completing their equipment.

ICS were contracted to complete a high polish on the handrail sections on the Geraldton foreshore, 400km north of Perth.

The stainless steel was pickled and passivated to meet standards ASTM A380 and ASTM A967. Upon completion, the stainless steel was Electropolished to standard ASTM B912.

ICS were contracted by Civmec Construction to treat their stainless steel spool for their Oil & Gas Process Plant. Made via a confined space entry, the stainless steel fabrication required internal spray pickle and passivation.

The treatment of all internal stainless steel surfaces adhered to the following standards:

  • ASTM A380
  • ASTM A967

Offshore Angola Africa – Completed 2015

ICS were contracted for the treatment of subsea stainless steel Motion Record unit assemblies for an Floating Storage & Production Offtake (FPSO).
