Silcarb manufactures various types of energy-efficient Galvanizing Furnaces. Immersion heated Galvanizing Furnace, both Electrical, as well as Gas, fired up to 40-tonne capacities.
Hot-dip galvanization is as the name suggests dipping a ferrous component (either steel or iron) into a hot bath of molten zinc held around 449 °C (840 °F) in order to prevent corrosion of metal.
Cast ferrous products are immersed in the zinc bath until they reach bath temperature. The zinc metal then reacts with the iron or the steel surface to form a zinc/iron inter- metallic alloy Then the articles are withdrawn slowly from the galvanizing bath.
The galvanizing furnace is undoubtedly the heart of a hot-dip galvanizing plant: energy efficiency, kettle life, and product quality all depend on how good the design and engineering of the furnace are. Ultimately, even the profitability of the plant is deeply connected to the quality of furnace engineering.
Inside the combustion chamber, the real heart of the furnace, thermal energy is produced in order to keep molten zinc within the optimal temperature range. Excellence in combustion chambers is the result of accurate energy balance calculation, precision in mechanism assembly and perfect insulation selection. Silcarb builds its galvanizing furnaces without compromises: improving every single feature to make sure the galvanizer gets unrivaled galvanizing performance.
The new dual-chamber galvanizing furnace has quickly become a paradigm shift within the industry, especially when it comes to fine-tuned combustion control. This, in turn, provides galvanizers with the sort of control they are seeking to improve process management.
Our technical staff will support galvanizers in choosing the best technical solution for their specific needs, thanks to over four decades of experience in the hot-dip galvanizing industry as well as constant innovation in numerous installations across the World.
