Keywords: appliances, zinc removal, galvanized steel, air and chlorine atmosphere


All appliances contain an important quantity of steel and iron. These can be further recycled at the end of product usefulness. A component of the appliances is the bodies. These are made from galvanized steel. A study for the zinc coated layer removal from the surface of the galvanized steel, prior to recycling the steel scrap by melting in the steelmaking process is presented.
