Galvanisation

With the commissioning of the new hot dip galvanising plant in Schmelz-Limbach, MEISER began a new chapter in the summer of 2011. Hot dip galvanising guarantees a long-term corrosion protection of MEISER products without requiring any special maintenance.

Our new building combines attractive industrial architecture with state-of-the-art technology. The environment and the employees benefit from pollutant-free operations and exemplary working conditions, which in no way resemble the conventional image of a galvanising plant. 

Behind the beautiful fa├žade, many areas of the building accommodate automated processes which ensure the highest possible level of efficiency and quality. Each individual post is loaded according to schedule into the galvanisation process and can be tracked from the time it is hung up on the cross arm to when it is taken down onto the lifting and lowering stations. Chemical pre-treatment, an environmentally sensitive process, is carried out in a fully enclosed area, with the emissions produced passing through an extractor system to a filtering process, so that our environment is not polluted in any way. 

Using a very powerful dryer, we produce very clean and preheated surfaces before the galvanising process. This also has a very positive effect on the consumption of zinc and the surface quality. Zinc is a valuable raw material which has to be handled with care.
