Preparation tanks installed at Scottish Galvanizers

ScotsPickle150903Scottish Galvanizers (part of the Wedge Group) has installed what are said to be the largest steel preparation tanks in the UK as part of a major investment at its Glasgow premises.

In order to streamline its operations, the company has invested £500,000 in the installation of two large acid pickling tanks to replace four smaller units.

The new tanks, measuring 22m long, are designed to make the preparation of steel sections easier by being able to accept larger members.

The preparation process, which removes rust, impurities and stains, allows the hot-dip galvanizing process to be undertaken.

Scottish Galvanizers Customer Services Manager Paul Tait said: “The new tanks are a fantastic addition to the facilities we already have, and will help us further speed up processes, as well as provide capacity to take on even more projects.

“As a result of this positive business growth and major investment, we’re better placed for future growth and expansion, and have the facilities to cater for increasing customer demands.”
