Galvanizing: The Forty Year Solution To Corrosion Control

Hot dip galvanizing provides steel with long-lasting protection against corrosion. Properly galvanized steel can last 40 years or more without maintenance.

Great service is long-lasting, too. For 60 years, Galvan Industries has provided the ultimate in corrosion control to steel fabricators and manufacturers throughout the Southeast. Founded in 1958, Galvan was the first hot dip galvanizing operation in the Carolinas.

Keeping pace with increasing customer demand has meant regular investments in facilities and equipment, but at Galvan, we’ve taken the necessary steps to become – and remain – the largest capacity contract galvanizer in the Southeast.

 

Our objective is to give you high quality, fast delivery and personal service for all your galvanizing requirements.

DOUBLE DIPPING

Progressive Dipping Or Double Dipping
Galvanizing Large Steel Structures

Galvan Industries’ hot dip galvanizing kettle is 42′ long x 4’6″ wide x 8’6″ deep. The large bath size, in conjunction with modular design techniques and “progressive” or “double dipping” will allow almost any structure to be galvanized with greatly reduced maintenance costs and extended life.

When a fabrication is too large for single immersion it may be possible to galvanize it by progressive dipping, immersing one end of the work at a time in the galvanizing bath.

The Galvanizing capacity chart below indicates the maximum length of structural sections capable of being galvanized at this facility. The depth of section is indicated along the vertical axis and the corresponding maximum length is shown on the horizontal axis.

Note: These sizes are theoretical maximums for length and depth. Please contact Galvan Industries on fabrications that approach the extreme limits shown.

 

 

BLAST CLEANING

Abrasive Blast Cleaning

Blast cleaning is the ideal cleaning process prior to forming, shearing, rolling, painting or galvanizing.

Blast cleaned steel reduces wear on shears, punches and roll-formers by removing abrasive mill scale. This can allow immediate painting. Blast cleaning also eliminates the need for post fabrication cleaning process.

At Galvan, the blast cleaning process is computer controlled with automatic loading and unloading. Our blast cleaning cabinet accommodates materials up to 36″ in diameter in any lengths (see diagram below). The steel shot used produces a smooth, clean surface ready for painting.

For work pieces too large for the shot blast cabinet, hand sand blasting with abrasive grit is available.

All work is processed to SSPC or NACE Specifications. Steel Structures Painting Council Specification, SSPC-10 (near white) is normally produced on the first pass.
