Molten zinc pumpout and storage…and snow!

Zinco UK recently visited Telford to carry out a pumpout and molten zinc storage over the Christmas period using our storage vessels.  Even the new team member looks tired by the end of the day!

It was a busy site with various other works being carried out alongside the new kettle installation, Zinco pumped just over 120 tonnes of molten zinc into storage, but all work completed as planned on time.

We offer all services from a full programme of kettle change, where we handle all aspects of a kettle change, to a simple pump out using our zinc moulds, and everything in-between.

We are looking forward to returning in the New Year to pump the molten zinc into the new kettle.




The benefits of transportable furnaces:

  • SAVES TIME: Re-melting time is much shorter than the traditional method, potentially saving you 7 to 10 days, depending on kettle size.
  • SAVES MONEY: Quicker restart means less impact on production.
  • KETTLE SOFT START: Direct pumping into a new furnace from the transportable furnaces avoids the traditional danger of thermal shock, avoiding serious deformation and local over heating that can often be fatal for the kettle.
