Immersed electrical elements hot dip galvanizing furnaces
Using an immersed electrical element heating system in galvanizing is typically something requested in those areas of the World where no other fuel is available (natural gas, heavy oil, etc). This system however is very fragile, as immersed heating elements offer only a few days of service life and are not able to provide enough heat to actually melt solid zinc. Gimeco is therefore offering an interesting alternative for customers operating in areas of the world where no other fuel is available.
Gimeco’s system is based on infrared radiation generated by side walls which incorporate electrical heating elements. This concept, while using electricity as its main source of power, is not as fragile as the traditional systems based on immersed elements and can provide robustness and reliable performance over time. Electrically heated hot dip galvanizing furnaces have been installed by Gimeco and its partner company Cotimpi across the entire World.
