Garber, S and Sturgeon, G M (1959) Scale on Wire Rod and its Removal by Mechanical Means. In: Symposium on Iron & Steel Industry in India Organised by the NML, Aug.'1959, NML, Jamshedpur.



The rod from Which plain carbon steel wire is produced is normally supplied in the original rolled condition with its scale attached. As a preliminary to the succ-essful drawing of the rod down to wire, it is essential to remove this scale. The traditional method of removal has been to pickle the rod coils by submerging them in solutions of dilute acid. In recent years one has seen developments introduced to achieve mechanical scale removal.
