Process Of Galvanizing Steel Pipe

Steel is a ferrous metal, which makes it susceptible to corrosion and rust and, over time, the chemical breakdown of the metal object. Galvanization is the process by which steel is dipped into molten zinc in order to coat it with a nonrusting protective layer. The zinc's temperature is around 850 degrees F and chemically bonds to the steel. Zinc deteriorates at a much slower rate than steel and is an affordable metal for galvanizing steep pipes and other items.
The manufacturing of galvanizing steel pipes occurs in two main processes: First,steel pipes are manufactured from raw materials,and then the pipes are galvanized in molten zinc.The finished product is a chemically bonded combination of steel pipes and zinc coating.
Manufacturers purchase raw steel products which are milled into steel strips,or sheets.The sheets are then rolled into pipes and the two ends are welded together.The number of times the sheet is rolled determines the size of the pipe.Next,these prefabricated pipes are dipped into molten zinc. The finished product is galvanizing steel pipe,which is resistant to corrosion.
