QED specializes in equipment for heat-treating, cleaning and coating of steel wire. Custom designed and built, our high speed lines are for galvanizing, Galfan®, patenting, annealing, and oil tempering processes. Combining innovative design concepts with 30 years practical experience, we have developed a range of products and equipment that is both technologically advanced and ruggedly dependable.QED has recently upgraded our proven fluidbed technology with proportional, closed-loop feedback and mass flow controls. The Siemens PLC based system provides much higher thermal efficiency and lower fuel costs than previous systems. Our fluidbeds operate from DV=120 to DV=240 and from 1.5 t/h to 8.0 t/h production with satisfied customers on six continents. Our latest development in galvanizing furnaces is the Advanced Recuperative Technology Mark 4 Immersion Burner. This burner offers dramatically higher combustion efficiency from a double pass pre-heat design with extended heat-transfer area. Constructed of stainless and high nickel alloy steels this modularly constructed burner offers an extended operating lifespan and reduced maintenance.
In addition to the fuel savings, our new burner runs with a cooler skin temperature providing a more pleasant working and maintenance environment. The company also supplies the latest development in HighTurbulence® Pickling and Galvanizing technology. Our multiple stage cleaning systems have high turbulence acid that greatly accelerates the pickling process. Now with coating weight computer control, nitrogen wiping in galvanizing and Galfan offers significant savings and accuracy.
