ECO Pickled Surface Pumps

Industrial Duty Pumps & Accessories for ECO Pickled Surface Applications



Eco Pickled Surface (EPS) is an environmentally-friendly replacement for acid pickling. The process produces a cleaner, rust-resistant surface compared to acid pickling while providing cost savings.

EPS process uses a slurry blast made of water and abrasive material that is carried by the water. The water and abrasive material solutions are sprayed at high pressure onto the moving steel strip. That spray impinges against the steel and removes scale while smoothing and sealing the surface of the steel. The process provides a smooth and uniform finish that does not require a film of oil to seal the surface.

Steel roll production plants have vigorous operating hours and require equipment that can operate continuously. The durability and long-life of Cat Pumps products have the attributes that system designers and plant managers demand. A reliable and always-ready high-pressure system is mandatory.

With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the best high-pressure water pumps for ECO Pickled Surface (EPS) applications.
