FIBA Technologies, the leading manufacturer of high pressure gas vessels, has invested $1 million in the design and build of a state-of-the-art polishing machine for finishing the interior and exterior surfaces of tubes and pressure vessels.
An extremely high grade of finish is required for electronic-grade, ultra-high purity (UHP), and specialty gases.
FIBA’s Vice President of Finance and Operations, John Finn, explains: “Using a proprietary design, FIBA’s new polishing system can deliver the internal and external surfaces required for gas products that demand the highest levels of cleanliness, surface finish, and purity.
“Different gases require different standards of surface finish. For instance, a hydrogen pressure vessel requires a less smooth internal finish than specialist gases such as HCL as used in the manufacture of semiconductors.”
