Our products

Product category: Galvanizing lines

Galvanizing & Galfan Coating Furnaces

The QED Immersion Burner Galvanizing Furnace is built to coat continuous in-line steel wire strands with zinc. The wires dip into a longitudinal bath of molten metal, pass under a sinker and exit the furnace through a wiping system.  The molten metal is contained in a ceramic lined bath designed for a long trouble-free life and supported by a rigid steel framework. The bath is heated by gas fired Immersion Burners using fourth generation recuperative technology to maintain a high thermal efficiency

Our latest development in ceramic lined furnaces is the Advanced Recuperative Technology Mark 4 Immersion Burner. This burner offers dramatically higher combustion efficiency from an extended double pass pre-heat design. Constructed of stainless and high nickel alloy steels, they have an extended operating lifespan and a much cooler skin temperature.

QED Fastheat(TM) Fluidbed Furnace

With a bed of fine aluminum oxide particles and precise air & gas control, QED Tempering fluidbed furnaces offer an environmentally friendly heat-treating solution in an energy efficient package. The fluidbed’s rapid heat transfer results in significantly shorter furnace length and therefore more compact and easier to operate process lines. The QED Fluidbed Furnace is designed to heat-treat continuous in-line steel wire strands. The wires travel longitudinally through a bed of solid aluminum oxide particles that are fluidized by heated gases. Air and gaseous fuel is introduced into the bottom of the sand bed through sets of distributing burner and air piping assemblies. Combustion of the air and fuel mix occurs within the bed (submerged combustion) and transfers heat directly to the large surface area of the sand.

Austenitizing Furnaces (Pulse Fired Muffle Tube Furnaces)

The QED Wire Lines Austenitizing furnace is solidly constructed of welded structural steel sections designed to support the refractory lining and withstand thermal stresses. These robust furnaces are constructed to sit on a level floor over a pit holding the combustion piping. The addition of pulse-firing technology improves the thermal efficiency and increases temperature uniformity; it also allows for a higher turn-down ratio, lower NOx emissions and more flexibility in burner and zone control .

Pickling Systems

A proven performer; our HighTurbulence™ Pickling System optimizes fluid flow to breakdown the static boundary layer surrounding the wires and rapidly remove scale. With multiple cascading stages, this efficient system lowers acid consumption and minimizes waste treatment requirements.  The QED Pickling System is designed and built to clean the surface of continuous in-line steel wire strands in preparation for a subsequent coating operation. The wires run longitudinally through the system tanks in a straight path without dips or bends. The acid section is a totally enclosed space that prevents fumes from escaping to the plant atmosphere. The Entry (sealing) Section, Acid Sections and Rinse Sections are all incorporated into a common tank structure with internal divisions and structural supports. The tank is fabricated of special reinforced corrosion resistant plastics. The top cover is a bolted construction of multiple sections of reinforced plastic material. Quick lift-off hatches are provided at strategic intervals on the covers to allow easy access to the interior for maintenance.
