How to do our first melt in new galvanising kettle





January 30, 2012

Q. Dear sir
Shortly we will be switching on our new electric powered galvanising kettle. How long will this process take and how quickly should we ramp up the temperature.

Surely your kettle maker gave you this information???

That's not something to guess, and is specific to your kettle, not a generic formula. (though there are general guidelines)

If you didn't get this from kettle maker, ask them. Demand it!!
