Galvatek - Aerospace Surface Treatment Plants
over 30 years Galvatek's quality has been used by renamed companies around the
world to protect parts and components against corrosion and wear and extend
their life cycle.
Galvatek lines are ideal for all types of treatment such as degreasing,
stripping, coating, passivation,
anodizing, conversion coatings, black oxidation, phosphating, chromating, etching, chemical
Thanks to their innovations, Galvatek's treatment plants comply with health and safety regulations. The design prevents spills from the tanks, and its proprietary ventilation system Candovent™ extracts gases and fumes keeping the air clean and safe for the employees.
7 reasons to choose Galvatek's Surface Treatment Lines
Only high-quality components are used in each Galvatek line to improve efficiency. The line runs smoothly with minimal downtime events.
2. TAILOR MADE
Galvatek does not have pre-set sizes, and each line is designed to adapt the unique needs, requirements, and facility specifications.
3. ANYWHERE IN THE FACILITY
Galvatek developed an enclosed ventilation system: Candovent ™ that makes possible to place the line anywhere in the facility. It doesn’t require a separated enclosed area.
4. ENHANCED SAFETY
The closed ventilation system, Candovent™, prevents spills and keeps gases inside, avoiding work environment contamination and reducing the operator exposure to the chemicals.
5. COST SAVINGS
Consume less energy and water than traditional lines generating operational cost savings. Many factors lead to the savings: heat and exhaust air loss reduction; and lower energy consumption for tanks heating and AC / heating, among others.
The line follows the steps set up on the system and requires minimal operator involvement that is limited to the load and upload process.
7. SMART STRUCTURE
Designed to optimize production flow on large lines, The Galvatek 3D Transport System allows to place tanks by floor optimization instead of by process steps. The transporter moves the parts in and out the tanks in any order.
For traditional surface treatments such as anodizing, etching, or plating a regular transporter or a floor mounted cross transporter is used, depending on the specific requirements.

Chemical Cleaning Lines
Galvatek’s chemical cleaning lines (CCL) for the aerospace industry are designed to clean aero engine components prior to non-destructive testing (NDT) inspections.
Turnkey and cost-efficient a Galvatek Chemical Cleaning Line is the MRO and OEM ally to reach the perfect cleaning result while reducing human error and operation costs.
Each line includes a combination of different cleaning processes depending on specific needs: Aqueous, Alkaline or Ultrasonic Cleaning; Degreasing; Paint, Varnish, and Coating Removal/Stripping; Rust and Scale Removal; Scale Conditioning, Rinsing, and Drying.
Design to clean contaminants such as oil, paint, rust, or coatings from aero engine components prior to non-destructive testing (NDT) inspections
- Effective, cost-saving and environmentally friendly
- High level of automation and production traceability
