When a pipe galvanizing facility starts using the KID, it is soon discovered that old habits could be safely put aside.

CUSTOMER FOCUS

In a highly productive pipe galvanizing facility, the Customer needs to manage its process and maintenance more efficiently. Are the usual 16 months a reasonable duration for each kettle’s life cycle?

OUR RESPONSE

Zinco comes in with a plan: two repeated inspections on the kettle, one at 12 months of age, one at 18 months. Data shows that the kettle can go 30 months without incidents. Basing on corrosion rates, Zinco also provides burners calibration and optimization, so that the kettle wear rates become more predictable. Finally, a full service package is proposed to include the two inspections and the kettle change, allowing the Customer to have excellent planning capability as well as the best pricing possible.
