Effective methods to maintain the quality of steel factories in the Western area


Steel is one of the world’s most important construction materials. It is not sure because steel can easily be susceptible to rust, oxidation, and corrosion. So, there is a need to protect it carefully. But, do enterprises work well on maintaining its quality? Look at this writing to find out more about effective methods to maintain the quality of steel factories in the Western area.

1. What is steel? What are some properties of steel?

Steel is a metal that is made of a mixture of Iron and Carbon and other chemical substances, such as Oxygen, Phosphorus, Manganese, etc. In which Carbon substance occupies around 2%.

Properties of steel: hardness, toughness, malleability, elasticity, and solderability. Steel’s malleability depends on the amount of Carbon substance included in the compound.

2. Types of steel that are commonly used in construction

2.1 Strip steel

Strip steel is a steel product that is made of large and slippery steel sheets rolled together. The strip steel usually has a length of about 0.125 to 4.5mms and a weight of about 200 to 450 kgs. The process of making this type of product is complicated.

2.2 Shaped steel

Shaped steel is a steel product that includes comprehensive shape patterns of letters, such as letters U, I, Z, L, or V, etc. Construction companies usually use this type of steel in building construction, factories, pre-engineered steel buildings, etc.

2.3 Galvanized steel pipe

Galvanized steel pipe is the type of steel that construction companies use widely in building construction thanks to its high level of hardness and durability, flexibility in installation, and high corrosion resistance.

2.4 Bar steel

There are two types of bar steel that are plain bar and rebar. Bar steel has high elasticity and malleability which can be widely used in modern construction.

3. Solutions to maintain the quality of steel factories in the Western area

3.1 Use tarpaulin to cover

Before being put into practice, harsh weather can significantly affect steel construction, leading to rapid corrosion. For this reason, construction companies have to cover the steel factories in the Western area by using large, waterproof, and high-durability tarpaulins.

3.2 Paint on the steel surface

Construction companies must paint the steel surface which is placed outdoors. Painting helps reduce the possibility of rust and oxidation. However, compared to putting steel indoors, this is only the most effective method to protect steel from being damaged.

3.3 Place the steel indoors

In order to maintain the quality of the steel product, the most effective method is to place them inside the factories and warehouses. This helps resist damage such as corrosion and oxidation from weather and the external environment. This method also helps protect the steel from being stolen.

However, there are many things that companies must notice when using this method to protect their products:

  • Warehouse staff must place steel on a concrete or wooden layer. If concrete is used, a wooden cushion layer underneath is required. The layer must be around 30cms in height for the ground floor and 10cms in height for the cement floor.
  • Besides making a detailed and careful design of the roof, warehouse staff needs to examine its quality of it to ensure its quality and avoid damage to steel products.
  • The staff must place the steel in dry and low-humidity environments and avoid placing steel in good condition with bad ones.
  • The staff must avoid placing steel in the acid, base area, and rust removal areas in the factories or warehouses.
  • They should clean the place where they put steel to avoid corrosion and oxide.
