Spokane Galvanizing works with engineers, fabricators, and specifiers before and during the project.
After the steel has been delivered to our 26 acre facility in Airway Heights, we unload the steel and properly document the load. Receiving checklist. The steel is inspected to ensure it has adequate vent and drain holes (ASTM385 standard) before heading into the shop. ASTM385 Standards.
The steel is then racked or hung and sent to the staging area, where surface preparation takes place. Surface preparation is imperative; zinc will not adhere to steel with any outside contaminates.
Once free of contaminates, the clean steel is put into the High Grade Zinc bath at a temperatures of 850 degrees Fahrenheit which metallurgically bonds the zinc coating to the steel. Final steps include cleaning, taking certifications and weighing the product before shipping.
