Coating and drying

Sirio Wire can also provide salt coating or borax bathes for multiple wire lines after heat treatment or for one wire/rod wire in line with the drawing machine.

The coating bath consists of:

  • An insulated stainless steel reservoir tank;
  • A stainless steel working tank;
  • A stainless steel cover to reduce heat loss;
  • One vertical pump or propeller that brings the solution from the reservoir tank to the working tank;
  • One heating system (either electrical or steam-operated) heating the solution to a temperature of around 95C;
  • One air wiping system reducing the drag out at the exit of the bath;

Our dryers are made using a stainless steel tunnel in which hot air (at approx. 150C) is blown to dry the wire thoroughly.
