Zinc Bath Heating

A popular method of corrosion protection in today’s construction industry is hot dipped galvanising. This requires a large bath of molten zinc into which the component to be galvanised is lowered. One of the most efficient ways of melting the zinc in the bath and keeping it liquid is to fire burners between the bath and a surrounding furnace wall which has been built around the bath. Careful design of the burner systems (whether it be High Velocity or Flat Flame Burners), and controls, ensures best heat transfer into the zinc bath with minimum losses in the flue gases. Specially designed burners for this application are in The Combustion Group’s range of equipment.

Typical customers where The Combustion Group has been involved in these types of applications are Cape Gate, SCAW Metals and CWI.
