Galvannealing (GA) & Edge Heater
Galvannealing (GA) Systems for Strip Processing Lines
Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic supplied the very first induction heating system for galvanneal in 1986. Heating for galvanneal has been successfully used in more than 50 lines worldwide. Metallurgically, it provides superior uniformity of zinc iron alloy, better paint adhesion, and excellent welding characteristics.
Providing Heating & Melting Solutions Since 1916
Ajax TOCCO’s modular galvannealing system uses the latest transistor-based components and offers maximum efficiency. The unique design of the inductor avoids magnetic field losses, is highly efficient, and offers excellent uniform heating.
Adaptable to various strip formats, the edge heater provides the ideal temperature profile to avoid over-thickness of zinc on the edges. The edge heater is installed just prior to the GA heater.
