OFENBAU FRITZ galvanizing furnace celebrates 50 years in service
In 2011, the top-heated galvanizing furnace with ceramic tank and foundation cooling supplied toNuremberg,Germanyin 1961, for the galvanizing of pieces, has coupled 50
years in operation. OFENBAU FRITZ founder Karl Fritz realized this type of galvanizing furnace to be the most reliable and durable design as early as 1956, when the steel tank was still commonplace.
The 50 years of service are excellent proof of the OFENBAU FRITZ design, with our patented foundation cooling (no danger of zinc leakage), all the more considering that the zinc bath temperatures have exceeded500°C.
