DLYTE – WHY? COMPARISON
The world first Dry ElectroPolishing System
DLyte is a patented and revolutionary technology for surface finishing of metals, and is an improvement over finishing results obtained with traditional polishing systems such as abrasive polishing and liquid electropolishing.
⚙️ DLyte vs Liquid Electropolishing
DLyte achieves lower surface roughness than liquid electropolishing.
Side effects of liquid electropolishing like oxidation, passivation, milky surface, orange peel, etc are avoided with DLyte.
DLyte avoids surface waviness unlike liquid electropolishing.
Liquid electropolishing can only do polishing while DLyte is able to do grinding and polishing in one step, saving time and costs. DLyte achieves better corrosion resistance compared to liquid electropolishing.
Internal channels can be polished with DLyte with internal cathodes that allow direct conductivity through them. This creates homogeneous results across the part as the electricity flows through the media unlike liquid electropolishing.
The use of solid sand media allows for targeted polishing where you can prevent specific parts from being polished by blocking it with a cover. You can also do selective grinding by using media with diameter bigger than the roughness profile. All of that cannot be achieved with liquid electropolishing.
DLyte is very stable in terms of parametrization unlike liquid electropolishing where any change of the total surface to be treated requires an adjustment in parameters. Results are also controllable with DLyte as it is less aggressive than liquid electropolishing. Dry media used by DLyte is easy to handle, non hazardous, and the risk of contamination with the environment is lower than liquid electropolishing.
⚙️ DLyte vs Abrasive Polishing
DLyte achieves lower surface roughness than abrasive polishing, and is five times quicker as compared to mechanical abrasive polishing. Instead of applying pressure and movement with abrasive polishing, DLyte does not wear off the edges with their ion transport polishing process.
DLyte is able to reach small corners and dead zones through electricity unlike abrasive polishing which has difficulties in doing so because they can’t apply pressure and movement accurately in such areas.
Internal channels can be polished by DLyte with an internal cathode that allows direct conductivity through such channels. Some areas can be blocked from polishing with the application of a cover.
DLyte increases resistance to corrosion unlike abrasive polishing.
DLyte is non hazardous and easy to handle as it does not require any waste management procedures associated with the system. Only a soft ultrasonic or steamer is required for the cleaning after a DLyte polishing run.
