Annealing lines are industrial equipment used to produce various metal products, such as steel strips and wires. The process involves heating the metal to a specific temperature, holding it at that temperature for a period of time, and then slowly cooling it to improve its properties, such as ductility, hardness, and strength. Annealing lines can be used to improve the machinability and formability of metals, as well as to reduce their residual stresses and enhance their surface quality.
Pickling lines are used to remove the oxide scale and impurities from the surface of the metal. The process involves immersing the metal in a pickling bath, usually containing an acidic solution, to dissolve the surface layer of the metal and clean it thoroughly. In addition, pickling lines are often used with annealing lines to remove the oxide layer formed during the annealing process.
