Application field of hot dip galvanizing
For long-term protection of elements of a metalwork from aggressive environments, apply a method of hot-dip galvanizing. This method is used in all spheres of the economy, and it is widely used. To do this, open new plants that perform the necessary work.
In power engineering it is necessary to subject to anticorrosive processing by hot galvanizing elements of different volumes and the sizes. Of the largest may be noted:
- Power line supports;
- Transformer vault;
In addition to large components of electrical wires, elements of small size and volume are used:
- Connecting elements and hanging equipment;
- Jumpers for cable channels;
- The elements of the substations.
The performance of these works requires the company to have the necessary volumes of baths, which can accommodate the components of the structural elements.
The development of means of communication is due to the use of numerous necessary materials to maintain reliable communication. These elements apply to both cellular and radio communications and landline telephones. Among these materials there are large elements and small sizes. The main communication equipment is located outdoors and therefore is exposed to natural phenomena and changes in the periods of the year. Such elements must be subjected to corrosion treatment and hot-dip galvanizing the most profitable option. Galvanizing is subjected to:
- Radio mast;
- Radio tower;
It is necessary to apply protection measures for expensive equipment that all economy didn't fail and served years.
To protect structural elements in road construction, corrosion protection in the form of hot-dip galvanizing is used. Treatment is necessary for the improvement of the road surface. Hot-dip galvanizing coating is subjected to:
- Support, railing and noise-absorbing fencing;
- Elements of bridges, overpasses and tunnels;
- Supports, masts and drains;
- Lighting masts and reinforcement mesh.
The need for protection is due to the fact that all structures are located on the street, where natural phenomena adversely affect the metal and it is subject to oxidation.
Industrial and civil engineering
During the construction of new facilities and repair of old ones, it is necessary to change metal structures with the use of hot-dip galvanizing. For longer use and reliability in operation. Construction organizations-one of the main customers in carrying out protective actions for metal. Galvanized exposed:
- Steel frames and trusses of buildings;
- Formwork and building panels;
- Rails, embedded parts, stair elements;
- Roof, fence and gate.
Almost all elements of the building made of metal are subjected to anti-corrosion treatment. This is due to the safety of construction, so that hidden defects in metal products do not lead to an accident due to rust.
Industry and agriculture
In industry, there are many places where it is necessary to use galvanized metal. Especially widespread use of such material in the automotive and shipbuilding industries. Also, the necessary elements for pulp mills are subjected to hot-dip galvanizing. In agriculture, the use of protected metal is not as developed as in other sectors of the economy. Apply galvanized metal for the following:
- In grain elevators and silos for silage;
- Steel windows and doors in warehouses and farms;
- For tanks, sheds, greenhouse elements.
The necessary condition for the use of hot-dip galvanized metal is long-term use. In industry it is necessary to use also on technical conditions of production.
Oil production and refining
The oil industry is the main consumer of hot-dip galvanized metal. This is the only material that has the necessary strength and is not exposed to aggressive environment. This material is not susceptible to fuels and lubricants, resistant to various aggressive environments. It is widely used in the direct structural parts of oil refineries.
Urban infrastructure and utilities
In cities, there are many places where you need to use galvanized metal. Its application is closely related to public services. They are engaged in improvement of the cities. To do this, it is necessary that the materials intended for a comfortable stay, retain their appearance. The following items are subject to anti-corrosion treatment:
- Cabinets, bridges, billboards;
- Decorative fences, stairs, garbage containers;
- Elements of bus stops, Park benches, shopping places.
All these are small items, but for a longer period of use they must undergo the necessary processing or made of galvanized metal. Replacement costs will always exceed the cost of processing.
According to the standard ISO-9000, it is necessary to galvanize all of the above elements, as well as:
- Site the turbine halls of power plants and power plant, nuclear power plants;
- Elements of sports facilities, customs terminals;
- Necessary embedded parts piping all appointments.
Hot-dip galvanized metal is becoming a part of our life. This is a necessary element in all areas of our lives. This material not only saves money, but also makes safer objects and structures.
