The galvanizing lines are the heart of a rolling mill. They are responsible for rolling the steel ingots from the furnace into thin sheets. The lines are also responsible for removing impurities and other material from the steel.
The process of galvanizing steel involves coating it with a layer of zinc. Zinc is a very effective inhibitor of corrosion, making the steel more resistant to wear and tear. Galvanized steel is also known as hammered or cold rolled steel with a zinc coating.
These lines can be very dangerous if they are not properly maintained. If the line is leaking, it can release toxins into the environment. If the line is damaged, it can cause metal to come loose and fall onto the ground or into another part of the pipeline. Also the particles from the galvanizing line can cause serious injuries if they get into the eyes or nose. They can also cause skin burns if they come into contact with the skin. Injuries from working with galvanizing lines can be very serious and require hospitalization. Prevention is the best way to avoid these types of injuries.
