Cleaning and Rinsing

The cleaning section is designed to remove all traces of wire drawing lubricant are removed from the wire prior to galvanising when the wire is passed through alkali cleaning and water rinse tanks.

The tanks are equipped with individual pumping systems and are easy to thread up. Air knives are provided on all tanks to minimise carryover from one tank to another – the final air wipe is also for drying the wires so that it enters the furnace in a clean, dry state.

As there is no need to use acids the cleaning section allows the customer to minimise their impact on the environment and also DV’s of over 300  have been achieved.
