Fluxing process for galvanization of steel The

The basic steps in the batch galvanizing process include: alkaline or acid degreasing followed by pickling (usually in hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid) to remove rust and clean the surface of the steel; fluxing to protect the active surface of the steel from oxidation and to improve the wetting of the steel surface by molten zinc in the galvanization step; and dipping the steel in a bath of molten zinc.

Lime in the Steel Industry Graymont

Lime is used as a fluxing agent in electric arc furnaces and basic oxygen furnaces. Lime removes impurities (silica, phosphorus, sulfur) from the steel being manufactured. The lime fuses with the impurities to form slag, which separates from the steel and is removed. This process improves the quality of the steel.

An Overview of Steelmaking Process Steel

The Different Types of Steel. Steel is man-made and is composed from a combination of different materials and metals. The type of steel that is achieved at the end of the steel making process depends upon both the different types of metals that have been melted together to form the final product. Different types of steel are: a) Stainless Steel
