Rod scale and rust removal - acid-free, dry, green and clean

Rod and wire cleaning by SB brushing system
Rod and wire cleaning by SB brushing system

Wire rod rust, the most destructive natural disaster in the wire drawing industry, is no longer an alarming phenomenon, since the introduction of the Smooth-Brush (SB) wire rod green and dry cleaning system. SB rod cleaning is used in the most demanding wire drawing applications, including spring wire, plating wire, galvanised wire, PC strand wire, Al clad wire, cold-headed wire, CO2 welding wire, etc.

The SB dry cleaning system replaces the most costly operations in the wire rod cleaning process (including acid and other aggressive wet chemicals), generating dramatic cost savings, environmental benefits and improvement of productivity. The SB system is reported to be the most innovative rod dry cleaning method that removes excess of rod scale and rust, converting over 95 per cent of rod scale into useful micro-abrading medium, providing extreme efficiency and simplicity in rod dry cleaning applications, H/C and L/C, including 0.98%C.

Continuously liberated rod scale provides, in-line, an extremely reactive 5-micron size texture enabling powder lubricant to be chemically and mechanically interlocked to the rod surface, forming a hard and consistent anti-wear and anti-friction conversion coating that is found to perform comparable to or better than zinc phosphate.

This achieves in-line direct drawing from mechanically descaled uncoated bare rod, at virtually zero energy consumption and zero maintenance cost, in a totally green and dry application.

The SB is an in-line acid-free wire rod dry cleaning technique that enables wire direct drawing from mechanically descaled rod, generating dramatically lower operating cost, benefiting from significant energy and maintenance time savings, and complete environmentally friendly wire rod cleaning process.
