1. Difficulty of High Speed CGL Operation
■ Generation of edge splash and top dross loss in High Speed Operation

↑Strip ■Generation of edge splash


Air knife
leads to the loss of zinc consumption.
① Top dross loss

②Difficulty in thin coating

Zinc pot
Strip
③Edge over coat
As Line Speed increases,
Coating target
zinc-takeout pulled by strip increases.
