Stainless Steel Pickling for Meggitt

Stainless Steel Pickling for Meggitt

We are currently embarking on a project pickling steel for world renowned Aerospace group, Meggitt.

Meggitt are a FTSE 100 supplier of aircraft parts and they supply flight displays and wheels to both Boeing and Airbus.

As electroless nickel plating specialists, Nitec have the exciting task of pickling stainless steel for a project located in offshore Brazil.

Nitec were lucky enough to be chosen as partners in the project because we have the capacity to handle very large objects, in fact, we are able to plate anything from 3.5 to 20 tonnes in weight.

We are also used to safely handling and working with hydofluoric acid, which is an integral part in the process we are carrying out for Meggitt.

The hydofluoric and nitric acid will be used to remove discoloured scale from the stainless steel, and as you can see from the pictures, the process makes a huge difference to the surface of the steel.

If you would like more information about Nitec’s capabilities with regard to handling and plating large objects and experience working with substances such as hydofluoric acid, please call us on 0845 224 3571 or email us at
