Q. I am a student of (metalurji ve malzeme) engineering. I met some troubles about my project that was given me to be able to graduate from my school. The subject is hot dip wire galvanizing and I could not get sufficient sources and literature about it. I need your help about the processes being produced by your firm.
Especially, I couldn't get sufficient data (information) about the duration of waiting of the wire in acid, flux and zinc. Additionally, the thickness of galvanizing is another problem for me. I hope it will be received from you soon. Thank you for your help.

? Dear Ali;
Our company is specialized in equipment for that specific field.
As some of your question are making part of the technology, your demand is a little bit sensitive. What is the aim of your question? Is it to support a local producer in Turkey?

Branders: I personally don't think there is anything sensitive in these questions -- maybe there's a language barrier. He seems to just want to know typical immersion times in the acid, flux, and galvanizing tank, and a typical zinc thickness. I think even offering good google search terms would go a long way :-)
I am no galvanizing expert, but I believe typical pickling and flux times for continuous (wire) galvanizing would be about half a minute. I doubt that the time in the galvanizing tank would much different. Thicknesses are hard to predict, depending on wire gauge, alloy, etc. But for a school report, how far wrong could you be with an estimate of 1-2 thousandths of an inch. To my limited knowledge, it is not uncommon in continuous hot-dipping processes to 'wipe' excess galvanizing to reduce it to the desired thickness. Try googling "wiper for wire galvanizing". Good luck.
