Steel Wire Coating
Steel wire coating utilizes molten hot zinc to coat strands of wire in a continuous fashion. The bath of molten zinc is heated using silicon carbide single ended immersion tubes.
A typical zinc bath will contain between 10 to 20 immersion tubes. The zinc pot consumes a significant amount of energy and generates carbon and nitrogen oxide emissions.
The immersion tube's energy usage, emissions and thermal performance can be improved through the use of high surface area heat exchangers such as HeatCor™ and radiant tube inserts such as SpyroCor™.
