Pewag KWF Galvanised Chain

Galvanizing plants use various types of sling chains for lifting and transporting parts to be galvanized and for adding zinc ingots. Chains, particularly those used during the galvanizing process, are subject to extraordinarily high stress:

  • They are heated up to approx. 475°C in the galvanizing bath.
  •  They are subjected to zinc corrosion.
  •  The hydrogen that develops during the repeated work cycles of, galvanizing – pickling – galvanizing“ in the galvanizing
    bath has a considerable effect on the chains.
