For over 30 years Kingfield Galvanizing has hot dip galvanized steel components for engineering, construction and infrastructure projects throughout Australia.
Based in Melbourne's northern suburbs, Kingfield Recently invested $20 million to develop Australia’s first sustainable hot dip galvanizing (HDG) facility. And now operates the most highly automated galvanizing facility with the lowest emissions of any HDG plant in the southern hemisphere. Kingfield is the first Hot Dip Galvanizer in Australia to achieve an EPD for HDG and a Product Health Declaration from Global GreenTag.
Sustainable operating practices significantly reduce environmental impacts as automated materials handling equipment delivers more consistency in the pre-treatment process, resulting in uniform steel preparation and reduced consumption of chemicals. Fully enclosed pre-treatment, drying & hot dip galvanizing facilities prevent emissions from entering the atmosphere. Waste created from the galvanizing process is recycled and re-used, heat from the furnace is reclaimed, water is recycled within our plant and energy consumption per tonne is reduced. Kingfield's plant transformation includes staff free zones, automated materials handling systems, adjustable jig stands, extra jig stations and a transfer section that holds 24 jigs.
Each of these upgrades reduces the risk of injury, from moving steel objects. Our enclosed pre-treatment room & fume extraction systems further reduce the potential for injury or exposure to hazardous chemicals. Collectively these features minimise downtime & maintain a high quality, consistent galvanizing finish and can contribute to ISCA rated projects.
