Surface Finishes for Stainless Pressure Vessels & Components

Putting our perfectionist ways to use, we can achieve the finest finishes for machine-finished and electropolished stainless steel.

Fine Finishes for Stainless Steel Pressure Vessels & Components

HOLLOWAY AMERICA’s pressure vessel fabricators approach every detail of a project with compulsive perfectionism. That includes our finishes.  We believe the finish is of the utmost importance, so we grind all interior welds smooth and flush. If you choose a polished exterior, we grind all exterior welds smooth and flush as well. And we’ll help you select the appropriate finish for your unique vessel or part, from mill finish to a 75 Ra finish to a 5 Ra finish to finer than a 320 grit finish.

Electropolishing for a 10 Ra Finish or Finer

We can perform electropolishing to achieve the following on finishes for stainless steel vessels:

  • Premium ultra-smooth finish
  • Passivation and maximum corrosion resistance
  • Extremely high gloss to enhance the release of impurities, so it’s easier to clean and sanitize
  • Finish polishes available to 10 Ra and lower

Machine Finishing to Achieve a 25 Ra Finish to 35 Ra Finish

We can machine finish your stainless steel vessels to achieve the following:

  • 25–35 Ra internal finish
  • 35–45 Ra external finish
  • Additional polishing services available upon request
  • Material Test Reports (MTRs) supplied, standard

We're ready to craft your solutions.

America's biggest companies trust Holloway America to craft the stainless steel pressure vessels, tanks, and components that are crucial for their processes. Don't take our word for it, though. Discover the quality yourself.
