The galvanizing kettle has a capacity of 600 t of zinc. It is housed in a sealed enclosure equipped with a total white fume capture and abatement system. Our high velocity galvanizing furnace is divided into sections, allowing for better distribution of temperature between the surface and the base of the zinc bath. This reduces the amount of dross deposited on the kettle bottom in the form of floating mattes, thus improving the aesthetic appearance of the fabricated articles. Immediately following preheating, the materials are immersed in the galvanizing kettle. Immersion times for each rack are set based on the requirements of the process and are recorded. The immersion of the materials in a controlled zinc bath compliant with the most recent international regulations plays a crucial role in obtaining a proper, strong, long-lasting and aesthetically sound coating. Our Class 1 zinc bath uses only LME registered SHG zinc 99.995%. To reduce anomalies resulting from the accidental use of reactive steels, we have been using HAl-Ga ® Technology since 2008. Among other things, it calls for the addition of small quantities of technological alloys to the zinc bath. Our zinc bath is free of lead and nickel, which are considered to be “dangerous” metals, and the bath has a minimum zinc content of 99.7%. The zinc bath is maintained molten at a temperature of 443 °C and is monitored through periodic analyses.
