AbstractThe modern hot dip galvanizing operation is a complex process subject to a number of configurational, physical, chemical and kinetic parameters. Small decreases in temperature can precipitate intermetallic dross particles, which can be entrained in the flow towards the strip leading to surface imperfections. The numerical simulations carried out in this study clearly define the spatial distribution of velocity, temperature and compositional variation in the bath. The modeling of the transient effects during ingot melting and non-melting periods have also identified the critical periods and zones within the bath where dross formation can occur within an operating cycle.
