The Galvanizing Process
Our galvanizing bath in Elgin measures 10.5 m long x 1.1 m wide x 2.5 m deep which allows processing of steelwork of up to 14 m in length and 1.05 in width.
Our galvanizing bath in Cumbernauld measures 7 m long x 1.2 m wide x 3 m deep which allows processing of steelwork of up to 10.5 m in length and 1.15 in width.
The width of an item is usually the main determining point on whether an item is suitable for galvanizing. The metal will expand as it is heated in the zinc bath therefore an expansion tolerance must be allowed for at the design stage.
The maximum lifting capacity for an individual object is 4 tonnes at both plants.
