Kettle inspection Service

Zinc Immersion Probe (ZIP)

Our kettle inspection service uses our ZIP immersed scanning system that uses ultrasound to measure the kettle wall thickness.

Key benefits

  • Accurate instant results at inspection, written detailed analysis delivered within a week.
  • Minimal downtime as the zinc remains in the kettle and the service can be performed outside production hours.
  • Flexible system means that our engineers can focus on any specific areas of concern you may have.
  • Rapid response – If an issue with your kettle has occurred, such as an explosion or overheat, we will endeavor to be on site as a matter of urgency
  • A combined knowledge of over 20 years’ experience in corrosion profiling of galvanizing kettles gives our technicians a unique position to support our customers.
