Galfan Lines (Zn5% Al Alloy)


Galfan® Lines (Zn5% Al Alloy) The eutectic point mixture of 95% zinc and 5% aluminum forms an alloy that exhibits excellent corrosion resistance by combining the sacrificial characteristics of zinc with the hard and less porous nature of aluminum oxides. The coating is formed in a fine lamella structure with a thin ductile alloy layer against the steel. Coating life can be two to four times as long as pure zinc coatings of the same mass when subjected to similar corrosive environments.

Gas Fired Dryers


Our heavy duty gas fired dryers are made to remove moisture from the wires following a flux, borax or other coating application. This high convection hot air unit can also pre-heat wires in preparation for galvanizing, galfanizing or aluminizing. The wires maintain a level path while passing through a chamber of high velocity turbulent gasses....

High Carbon Galvanizing Line


Our high carbon wire galvanizing lines are supplied both with and without heat-treatment. When combined with patenting the wire speed is often limited to under DV=100 due to furnace length and capital cost restrictions. Without heat-treatment the designed line speed is high and suitable for advanced nitrogen wiping....

Immersion Burner Galvanizer and Galfan® Furnace


The QED Immersion Burner Furnace is built to coat continuous in-line steel wire strands with either zinc or Galfan®. The wires dip into a longitudinal bath of molten metal, pass under a ceramic sinker and exit the bath through a wiping system. The molten metal is contained in a special ceramic lined bath designed for a long trouble free life of over twenty-five years....

Intermediate Patenting Lines


The patenting process first involves heating the wires in an austenitizing furnace (usually direct fired or muffle tube) to about 950°C in order to form a uniform austenite structure of largish grain size. Fluidbed austenitizing furnaces have an advantage of significantly higher heat-transfer and therefore faster wire speed, but have issues with atmosphere control and scale formation.

Lead Annealing Furnaces


We use a proven technology in the engineering and building of our lead furnaces. Our nozzle-mix burners are fired under a heavy walled steel pan producing exceptional temperature uniformity. Pan life is maximized by using conservative heat flux engineering and high quality materials. Other performance improving technologies include QED’s new lip design which minimizes warping of the pan....

Lead Quenching Furnaces


The QED lead quenching furnace is built for the continuous rapid quenching of multiple in-line steel wire strands as part of the patenting process. Industry leading high velocity nozzle-mix burners fire under the heavy walled steel pan in a staggered pattern. Solidly built and designed with a conservative heat-flux, the furnace has an extended pan life. Liquid metal pumps continuously recirculate the lead to dissipate heat from the quench zone....

Low Carbon Galvanizing Line


The low carbon wire galvanizing process is usually accompanied by in-line process annealing. This heat-treatment lowers the stresses introduced during wire drawing and increases the wire’s ductility. The oxidized wire surface (scale) resulting from annealing is removed by cleaning in acid (pickling) followed by rinsing and fluxing....

Oil Tempering Lines


The oil tempering process is somewhat of a misnomer in the wire industry. The process actually involves heating the wire to austinitizing temperature in a muffle or direct fired furnace followed by a rapid quench in oil or water based quenchant. The third stage, tempering, is the reheating of the wire to an intermediate temperature in order to form tempered martensite.
