We understand what it takes to operate a successful galvanizing plant. Plant performance is determined from factors including, plant layout, equipment selection, technical knowledge & much more.
We understand these factors and ensure all elements are factored into the project and operational planning. We also provide on-going support to help ensure the plant achieves the objectives initially established for it.
Hunter Galvanizing Plant 1 Upgrade
After 19 years of service, Hunter Galvanizing Renewed their current galvanizing furnace to a new Modupulse Velocity™ galvanizing furnace.
With these upgrade kettle corrosion and gas usage was of high importance in which Kingfield Targeted there design towards improving along with more important elements.
Through new firing technology, Hunter Galvanizing is saving approximately 25% of there gas bill prior to the new furnace upgrade whilst production never relies on the zinc temperature due to the PLC technology.
FERO GROUP (DSI UNDERGROUND) Brisbane- Spin Furnace Upgrade
December 2021- Kingfield Supplied a 2 Burners Hot Dip Galvanizing Furnace custom designed to replaced FERO Groups existing spin furnace.
By Integrating our Modupulse Velocity™ control system with a new furnace upgrade the customer has significantly increased kettle throughput whilst decreasing energy use by 35%.
Kettle wear will now be significantly reduced due to the Modupulse Velocity™ firing system.
Valmont Coatings Minto- March 2023
From the original commissioning date in 2007, Valmont- Minto AKA, Ingal Civil Products gave there pre-treatment room a new lease on life with new lining upgrades of there pre-treatment room.
