Pickling and Oiling

Pickling is a treatment applied to the surface of steel strip to clean and remove the scale that is an inherent feature of hot rolled steel strip. This is achieved by the use of acid which is subsequently washed to stop ongoing chemical action. Oil is then applied to protect the surface of the strip from oxidation


The commonest method of slitting steel strip is known as "shear slitting". In this method the steel is cut by the operation of two rotary knives that operate as a scissor. Some excellent information can be found here courtesy of the Carolina Knife Company who are manufacturers of machine knives.


The decoiling process involves the unwinding of steel coil. This is passed through roller levellers and on to a flat bed where the material is cut in to strips or lengths.
