Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of coating iron or steel with a thin zinc layer by passing the steel through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around °860F (°460C). When exposed to the atmosphere, pure zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide, which further reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate, a dull grey, fairly strong material that stops further corrosion in many circumstances, protecting the steel below from the elements.
Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where rust resistance is required.
The galvanizing plant is designed by Protherm Engineering UK and equipped with Zinc Kettle size
(16m x 1.6m x 2.8m) which covers all galvanizing requirements for the following:
► Steel Poles ► Heavy and Medium structural Steel ► Steel Grating ► Miscellaneous Steel Products ► Handrails ► Ladders, Caged Ladders and Stairs ► Steel Plates ► Steel Pipes and Tubes
