Fives’ complete minispangle system for a new galvanizing line
Fives was contracted to design and deliver a complete minispangle system for a new galvanizing line of 250,000 tons per year in the United Arab Emirates.
Fives has developed a new minispangle system, Stein Minispangle, which is a companion system to continuous galvanizing strip lines. The system is installed downstream of the zinc coating bath and applies zinc powder to the strip to obtain an extremely fine crystallization of the coating. This minimizes the galvanized “spangles” allowing for high surface quality for precoated and color coated strip.
The complete minispangle system will be used in the galvanizing line to produce pre-coated steel for various construction applications. The scope of supply will include an operating transfer platform, an adjustable up and down blowing box, a zinc powder feeding system, a filtering unit, and related instrument and control systems.
Fives has been specializing in strip coating solutions for more than 40 years, having developed and supplied a wide range of equipment for steel coated products, such as minispangle, curing and drying ovens, cooling systems for galvanizing and coil coating lines, as well as related expertise, technical consulting, metallurgical assistance, auditing and customer support.
