The purpose of the continuous galvanizing line (CGL) is to apply a coating of zinc or zinc/aluminium onto the surface of steel strip to improve corrosion resistance.
Galvannealing is optionally performed to alloy the coating into the steel substrate. This requires accurate temperature monitoring at the exit of the galvanneal section. AMETEK Land has supplied the steel industry with high-quality, reliable temperature measurement solutions for more than 70 years. Our range of specialist instruments includes the SPOT GS which is designed specifically for automated furnace management and provides close control of the reaction and position of the reaction zone, which delivers tighter control of product quality in the galvanneal process.
