If the tin bath requires a cold repair or needs to be preserved before a period of non-use, it must first be taken out of operation. An uncontrolled shutdown can lead to the loss of the whole tin bath, which is why it is not recommended.
In the areas where very high temperatures are required, an uncontrolled shutdown can very quickly lead to dangerous situations. Only very experienced and well-trained specialists know how to control processes during shutdown. We at HORN® can support you in this operation.
Shutdown is performed in several stages. One by one, the tin bath equipment is switched off and removed from the tin bath. Draining the tin starts next. During this operation, the temperatures and protective atmosphere are gradually reduced. The whole cooling process is done according to a preset plan and controlled by temperature measurements on the tin bath.
