Cleaning and Coating of Wire and Rod, Part II
This is the second of a three-part webinar series on cleaning and coating of ferrous wire and rod.
In Part II, the discussion focuses on the zinc phosphate process, including the control methods, what the data means to the operator, and basic troubleshooting of the process. It also discusses how this critical coating fits into the entire cleaning house process. The design of these processes impacts the economics of the operation. It is imperative that rather than individual stages, this department should be viewed as a whole, as it is critical to success.
Part III covers specialty coatings such as salt carriers, lubricants, dry film polymers, and new technologies on the horizon. Part I (now available in the Wirenet online archive) presents the fundamentals of cleaning and pickling, in preparation for the coating of ferrous wire and rod and the subsequent drawing operation. Proper control and handling in these areas ensures quality of the finished product.
This three-part program is intended for operators, managers, and process engineers involved in this phase of operations.
