Vessel Plating Facility


FLC Region

Security Lab



Picatinny Arsenal




This facility was developed specifically to deposit high performance bore coatings inside long gun tubes. It can accommodate cylinders up to 26 feet in length and studies can be conducted on fluid dynamics in turbulent annular flows with strong magnetic fields causing heat and mass transfers. This facility is unique in that the cylinder whose interior is being plated actually serves as the plating vessel. This process negates the need to submerge the entire object into a potentially corrosive salt bath. The ends of the cylinder are capped and the plating solution is pumped through the cylinder. This is extremely effective in plating cylindrical objects when only the interior requires plating or the exterior cannot tolerate plating.
