In the processing of steel, production hardware is required to operate under harsh conditions incorporating high temperatures, corrosive environments and wear. The continuous production flow of the steelwork industry require hardware to withstand these hostile environments.
At ASCO we have developed a thermal coating system to increase the life of continuous galvanising rolls, which outperform tungsten carbide rolls by 6 to 1.
Coatings applied to the galvanised continuous rollers allow steel mills to manufacture high quality coil and determine the length and timing of each campaign. The coating impedes corrosion from the zinc bath, maintaining product quality and improving operating efficiency by reducing the need to replace rolls as often; saving down time and maintenance costs and increasing productivity.
This coating is versatile and can be used in a wide variety of applications in the production of steel work.
