Galvanization Process

Choutuppal Manufacturing Facility has two Galvanizing Plants with the state of the art galvanization technology and automatically controlled Zinc Bath. Out of these plants, one with Zinc holding capacity of 13 m x 2.5 m x 2.5 m is one of the largest in Asia. The controlled treatment of the galvanizing process includes degreasing, pickling and fluxing for an ideal reaction between Steel and Zinc resulting in a homogeneous galvanization. The pre-heating chamber further ensures uniform drying and pre-heating of steel to give an excellent surface finish and uniform coating of zinc.

The Galvanizing Plant has a galvanization capacity of 108,000 MT per annum and is equipped with sophisticated in-house laboratory for chemical testing facilities. This facility is shared by both Towers and Poles divisions.
