Process Components



The Burlytic™ Processing System consists of six major parts:


1. Processing Tank
2. Control Cabinet
3. Rectifier
4. Chiller with Heat Exchanger
5. Filter (located behind Control Cabinet)
6. Fixturing (not shown)


Burlytic™ Processing System


Processing Tank – There is no theoretical limit to the size of the process tank. A tank which would accept a piece 100 feet long will process in much the same manner as a piece 1 inch long. The only difference is scale. If you can comfortably get the piece into the processing tank and properly submerged in the electrolyte, and adequate power and cooling are provided, you can process it.


Each of our models come standard with a benchtop workstation where certain parts, usually those which require localized internal deburring, can be processed on this bench-high work surface. This convenient feature includes control valves and means for returning electrolyte to the main tank for re-chilling and filtration.

The Control Cabinet contains all the equipment for regulating electrolyte temperature, pulse, voltage and duty cycle, process time, and agitator speed control.


The Rectifier (power supply) provides the process current.


The Chiller keeps the bath (electrolyte) cool while running. Since the electrolyte is resistive, the bath will heat up when current is passed through it. The chiller keeps the bath at the required process temperature which is applications dependent by way of a heat exchanger located outside the tank.


The Filter is needed to capture the suspended metal hydroxides.


The Fixturing is custom made for individual part requirements. The fixturing’s purpose is to hold the parts, apply electrical connections, supply processing cathodes, etc. The fixturing is usually suspended from the anode bar in the processing tank.


An expanded system could also include a pre-process degreasing station, post-processing parts washing, inhibiting and drying stations, and atmospheric or vacuum evaporator for rinse water management, a centrifuge, and possibly a robot parts handler.
