Understanding the Two-fold Protective Nature of Zinc

One of zinc’s greatest properties is its ability to protect steel from corrosion. For decades, zinc has played an integral role in safeguarding the core of our nation’s infrastructure—from the largest transmission towers to the most critical bridge and highway assets. Let’s learn a bit about the phenomenon of corrosion and the dual protection provided by the element.

Welding After Hot-Dip Galvanizing

All commonly practiced welding and cutting techniques can be used on galvanized steel (see American Welding Society’s [AWS] specification D – 19.0, Welding Zinc-Coated Steel). Welding on galvanized steel is usually necessary if the final structure is too large to be dipped in a galvanizing bath or for structures that must be welded in the field.

A Series: Improving Total Lifetime Value of Data Centers through Power Usage Efficiency (PUE) Reduction

Managing cooling and power efficiencies has been challenging for data center designers for quite some time. This is due to the significant loads required for the centers to operate effectively. IT equipment manufactured today is substantially smaller and faster, but more importantly to designers, the power density of the system is high, therefore generating significant excess heat. Temperature increases in data centers are a risk to reliability.

Design Considerations for Galvanizing: Distortion and Warping

With proper consideration and understanding of how the hot-dip galvanizing process affects steel, asymmetrical designs or structures containing sections of unequal thickness can be successfully galvanized, as can fabrications where cold-working techniques (bending, hole-punching, rolling, shearing) are employed.
