SMS Siemag received an order from China’s Bengang Steel Plates Co. Ltd. for the supply of a continuous hot-dip galvanizing line. The line will feature a radiant tube furnace from DREVER International, which is a company of the SMS group. The annealing furnace can handle high production capacities and an extensive mix of products. It features a pre-oxidation facility for selective surface oxidation and later reduction of the surfaces of high-manganese or high-silicon steels in order to increase the wettability of these grades. With this investment, Bengang hopes to advance into the market for high-quality hot-dip galvanized automotive grades for unexposed and exposed vehicle parts.
