Learn a little more about the galvanizing process in the manufacture of Galvanized Carbon Steel Pipes.
Research shows that corrosion is primarily responsible for iron loss in the world. Among the protection processes already developed, one of the oldest and most successful is hot dip galvanizing, or as it is better known, hot dip galvanizing.
It is a chemical process that coats steel with zinc. Thus, the main purpose of fire galvanization is to prevent the contact of the base material, steel (Carbon Iron alloy), with the corrosive medium.
Since zinc is more anodic than the iron element in the galvanic series, it is the one that corrodes, giving rise to cathodic protection, that is, zinc sacrifices itself to protect iron.
Hot dip galvanizing can be found in almost every type of application and industry where steel is employed.
Household industries, chemical processes, pulp and paper, construction, automotive and transportation, to name a few, have made great historical use of galvanization in corrosion control. And they still make use of the technique today.
For over 140 years, hot dip galvanizing has been a commercial success as a corrosion protection method for a wide variety of applications around the world.
There is also electrolytic galvanization, which is the deposition of zinc in steel or iron through electric current, ie the electric current supplied by the distribution networks transformed from alternating to direct current through rectifiers, so that the current can be separated. in two parts, the positive and the negative (Anode and Cathode).
