02. Industrial Galvanizers Company Profile

Industrial Galvanizers has galvanizing plants in Brisbane QLD (2), Townsville QLD, Newcastle NSW, Sydney NSW, Port Kembla NSW, Melbourne VIC, and Launceston TAS. Additional special galvanizing facilities for galvanizing small parts (centrifuge plants) are located with the structural galvanizing facilities in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Each plant provides transport services to customers with a fleet of table-top trucks and semitrailers.

The sales staff at each plant location can provide advice on designing fabrications for galvanizing, and will provide design literature on request, free of charge.

Industrial Galvanizers also provides a comprehensive technical service through its web site at www.ingal.com.au. As well as having a large database of specific galvanizing and anti-corrosion design and specification information, the site has a contact facility where technical questions on project specific galvanizing issues can be dealt with directly by one of the division’s technical authorities.

Industrial Galvanizers has developed a Corrosion Mapping System, which can also be accessed through the Industrial Galvanizers’ web page. The Corrosion Mapping System allows accurate assessment of corrosivity (and the durability of galvanized coatings) using proprietary CSIRO atmospheric modeling technology to define the corrosivity of atmospheres at any location in Australia.

The strategic location of Industrial Galvanizers plants in major centers throughout Australia allows large and complex projects to be galvanized efficiently through one or more facilities simultaneously.

The Industrial Galvanizers plant have the capacity to handle very heavy fabrications (up to 20 tonnes) through large galvanizing baths; while plants in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane have specialised centrifuge plants designed to efficiently handle the galvanizing of small parts.

In addition, the Industrial Galvanizers Melbourne plant has a specialised facility for hot dip galvanizing LPG gas bottles.

Each of these operations has experienced sales staff available to assist customers with the design of items for galvanizing, scheduling of work and co-ordination of special requirements for specific projects.

The company offers a range of special services to customers, including:

  • The Silver Bullet Service – where urgent steel fabrications can be processed in less than 24 hours.
  • Storage of completed work to match customer construction/distribution requirements.
  • Packaging of galvanized product for transport and distribution.
  • Coating Guarantees, typically 25-50 years, on specific projects.
  • Custom Coating Packages – galvanized coating options above and beyond Australian Standards.
  • On-line technical support – technical inquiries answered on the Industrial Galvanizers web site customer contact form.

Most Industrial Galvanizers’ sites have installed heavy lifting facilities that allow full loads of structural steel to be unloaded and loaded quickly.
Industrial Galvanizers Pinkenba Qld plant was the first to offer the Silver Bullet Service – overnight turnaround on steelwork to be galvanized.
This 10 tonne pole section was galvanized using the heavy lifting capacity of the Industrial Galvanizers’ Newcastle plant.
Specialised centrifuge facilities are available in Industrial Galvanizers’ plants in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, to process large quantities of small parts for the manufacturing industry in those regions.
Complex items like this large cooling coil are technically difficult to galvanize, as heavy ballast is required to immerse the tubular assemblies that are full of air, into the molten zinc. Industrial galvanizers has developed special handling equipment to process
