    • Near-Roll Dross Particle Interactions in a Galvanizing Bath

      Factors that influence dross generation inside a galvanizing bath include the nature of fluid flow, fluid temperature and solubility distribution. Likewise, dross buildup on a roll surface can be affected by both the groove geometry of the roll and the roll hardness. In this paper, the groove geometry effect is studied.

    • Novel Laboratory Lubrication Tests for Cold Rolling Emulsions

      Traditional laboratory lubrication tests often involve neat oils. However, compared to the cold rolling process, high levels of lubricant degradation and wear are often found. To better approach the situation in the field, laboratory lubrication tests were developed for emulsions. In this paper, the viability of these methods is illustrated by a number of field cases.
