Electro-polishing pipe
« on: Aug 24, 2011, 04:09 »
Does any one out there have any experience with electro-polishing internals on primary piping? I have an opportunity to have a high rad section of pipe replaced and would like the new pipe to be electro-polished to reduce crud deposition. I'm getting push-back from the usual suspects - any satisfied customers I could point to would be helpful. Our S/G bowls are polished, but the piping guys are still nervous.

If I recall from my days at VY, the replacement recirc pipe was all treated to minimize crud build up.
