Several solutions are available according to the analysis of the required flexibility, the range of wire products and the possible environmental constraints at the location of the plant of the customer.
The FIB quenching solutions have proved their reliability, flexibility and the safety for the operators. An encapsulated atmosphere to protect the workers but also specific maintenance tools have also been developed to easily pump the lead and to clean up the heat exchangers without shutting down the equipment.
When local legislation bans the use of lead, the fluidized bed technology gives a solution.
Our fluidized bed equipment (Ecoquench) has proved since many years its capability in many challenging conditions. The Ecoquench gives in this framework an answer to environmental strong conditions while in the meantime flexibility in the operated wire sizes, temperature profiles and easier sand management have been focused on .
