HIP Can Removal
Tech Met has extensive experience in the removal of steel and stainless steel “cans” from Hot Isostatic Pressed (HIP) and extrusion consolidated components. This is an effective means of can removal for production parts or billets, or even for the recovery of HIP and extrusion consolidated scrap. Removal is done without affecting the underlying alloy component.
Similar methods may also be used for the removal of tramp metal contamination or surface oxide contamination. Typical applications include removal of oxides from titanium, steel can removal or removal of steel tooling embedded in Inconel alloy billet end cutoffs. Complete removal of these contaminants allows the recovery of these high value materials without degradation of their composition.

The passivation process returns the stainless steel or other metals back to its original specifications by removing unwanted debris and oils from the surface. Tech Met is proficient in the production of passivated surfaces that comply with a variety of industrial specifications including QQ-P-35, ASTM 967, ASTM A380 and other processes.
