1 Preparation of Goods

1 Preparation of Goods It is important that the materials, such as st eel structures, pipes,

It is important that the materials, such as steel structures, pipes, gratings, pipe spools, handrails, flanges, elbows, etc. (nuts & bolts are not processed in our plant) are being prepared for galvanizing in a proper manner to fit our kettle size 10 meters long x 1,5 meters wide x 3 meters deep:

1.1 Paints, Protective Coatings, Welding Slag All paint, paint marks, varnish or other protective coating has to be removed prior to sending materials for galvanizing. Please note that lacquer or oil paint marks also need to be removed, while calk marks are no problem and will dissolve during pretreatment. Also welding slag has to be removed completely to avoid blank galvanizing surfaces. All surfaces must be clean, (eg: free of paint, varnish or other protective coating, clean of welding slag, splatter, etc.) prior to being delivered to the galvanizer!

1.2 Ventilation All structures, especially pipes need proper ventilation! The larger the ventilation the better. As a rule of thumb you may say that pipes below 1” should have at least 8mm if not 12mm holes, pipes above 1” should have at least 12mm holes! But not only pipes and profile need ventilation also H-Beam, U-Beam and C-Channel structures need ventilation openings where zinc might not run off. If you are not sure contact us prior to delivery or production and we will gladly assist your Team to prepare properly.

2 Incoming Control

Upon arrival of materials we will check:

2.1 Unloading The delivered goods are unloaded with forklifts or cranes (whatever suits best).

2.2 Completeness of delivery We check in accordance with Delivery Note provided by the forwarder and/or sent prior by the customer the completeness of the delivery.

2.3 Marking of materials Right away the received materials will receive a tag identifying the client, delivery date and time and if available the project name.

2.4 Compliance of materials We then survey the materials whether they are in compliance with galvanizing requirements as mentioned in EN ISO 1461 annex A and C.1 as well as ASTM A123 chapter 3 and 4. If some materials fail to comply we will notify the client to clarify next steps to remedy the situation.

3 Preparation

3 Preparation Once the incoming inspection is complete and the material in compliance with EN ISO

Once the incoming inspection is complete and the material in compliance with EN ISO 1461 and/or ASTM A123 requirements they will be attached to a jig, girder or placed in racks by hand or utilizing forklifts or cranes (whichever suits best) and lifted with cranes to the treatment section.

4 Pre treatment

Proper and right pre treatment is crucial for successful galvanizing, since only clean and well prepared surfaces will allow for the zinc to form the desired metallurgical bond. Painted, marked or other wise coated surfaces (see also point 1 Preparation of Goods) will not be properly covered!

4.1 Stage 1 – Washing of materials First the materials are being dipped into caustic soda where grime, oil, grease, calk markings and other dirt is being removed. Please note: paints, paint marks or other protective coatings are NOT being removed!

4.2 Stage 2 – Surface treatment After rinsing with water the materials are dipped into HCL (hydrochloric acid) where it is maintained until all rust and mill scales are removed and the surface is in accordance with EN ISO 1461 and/or ASTM A123 requirements. Treatment times may vary from a few minutes up to an hour depending on the surface condition of the materials.

4.3 Stage 3 – Fluxing After rinsing in water the materials are now dipped into flux. The flux provides a coat which will burn of during dipping, thus providing the final surface cleaning during dipping process and therefore ensuring the desired metallurgical reaction between steel and zinc.

5 Hot Dip Galvanizing

5 Hot Dip Galvanizing The pretreated and dried materials are now bei ng dipped as fast

The pretreated and dried materials are now being dipped as fast as possible into molten zinc. Upon immersion the steel reacts with the zinc and exchanges particles 24 zinc particles to 1 steel particle thus forming the desired metallurgical bond. The materials then remain within the zinc bath until the required coating thickness in accordance with EN ISO 1461 and/or ASTM A123 standards are reached (main indicator is when the cooking – bubbling – process stops).

6 Quenching

When the material allows it, it will be cooled inside the quench tank which is filled with water that also removes some ash residue. Please note that certain structures can not be quenched in order to avoid undesirable distortions.

6.1 Sodium Dicromate / Sodium Bicromate Since it is only providing a temporary cosmetic surface protection by inhibiting or delaying the required reaction of the zinc with CO² in the atmosphere we are NOT using Sodium Dicromate / Sodium Bicromate or similar products!

Not only would such solutions base a threat to our staff (highly toxic) but also to the environment and the people living near by especially considering that no proper waste water disposal facilities are available (only concentrations below 5 mg/m³ are considered harmless while fumes, consumption and direct contact are considered highly toxic)!

7 Take off and final inspection

7 Take off and final inspection Once the galvanizing process is finished we take off the

Once the galvanizing process is finished we take off the materials and do the final inspection:

7.1 Taking down of materials

Some materials require to be taken down right away and to be placed on a straight surface to avoid distortions but most can be quenched and taken down immediately when finished.

7.2 Sorting and finishing touch

After being taken down the materials are sorted (per truck delivered or as requested by customer) and zinc tips removed. Please note that we do NOT allow any grinders for the final touching, but only use hand- file as allowed and specified in EN ISO 1461 and ASTM A123. Bare spots are treated in strict compliance with EN ISO 1461 and ASTM

A123.

8 Quality, outgoing control and invoicing

Quality inspection and outgoing control is of utmost importance to ensure overall compliance and customer satisfaction:

8.1 Quality control Our independent (in house) inspectors are checking ALL galvanized materials to ensure that minimum EN ISO 1461 and ASTM A123 standards are always met. For thickness testing we use a “FISCHER DELTASCOPE MP30E” thickness tester. Valid calibration certification for both the thickness tester and the calibration standards for the thickness tester are available upon request. In case of shortcomings the materials is sent back to the proper procedures for either additional touch-up or regalvanizing.

8.2 Weighing When everything is in compliance the finished white material is then weight and the result sent on for further processing (scale calibration record is available on request).

8.3 Invoicing Once the galvanizing report is completed, quality control and weighing passed the customer will be informed and the invoice issued.

9 Process Documentation

To ensure our quality and overall compliance we have a thorough internal documentation system:

9.1 Materials Received Includes: Customer Name; Project Name; Material description, Weight and Contract/PO number.

9.2 Material Inspection Filed in case material is not in conformity with EN ISO 1461 or ASTM A123 and used to inform the customer (used prior or after galvanizing whenever applicable).

9.3 Material Identification TAG All received materials receive a ID TAG stating Customer; Project; date & time of arrival.

9.4 Dipping Report Every dip, incl. all important parameters, is recorded.

9.5 Galvanizing Report Once the material is taken down and inspected a Galvanizing Report is filed and includes: Customer; Project; Contract/PO Number; Weight and Delivery Details.

9.6 Outgoing Materials Report Registers the outgoing material and should be in conformity with 9.1 Materials Received report.

9.7 Delivery Note / Surat Jalan Required for any material, goods or tools that leave our premises.
