Abstract (en)

The apparatus includes a container (5) through which the electrolytically coated metal strip (1) runs on a number of rollers. It is subjected to a high pressure liquid from spray nozzles (3) of the dendrite removal units (2) directed onto the strip surface. The bottom section of the container forms a settling tank (8) with at least one overflow unit (4).

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verfahren zum Entfernen von Dendriten auf der Oberfläche, vorzugsweise an den Kanten, von elektrolytisch beschichteten Bändern aus Metall, welches dadurch gekennzeichnet ist, daß die Dendriten mittels auf das Band gerichtetem Hochdruckflüssigkeitsstrahl entfernt werden. Die Vorrichtung zum Entfernen von Dendriten sieht in einem Behälter angeordnete Spritzdüsen vor, die durch ihren Spritzstrahl die Dendriten entfernen, wobei die Hochdruckflüssigkeit in einem Absetzbecken des Behälters gesammelt wird und über einen Überlauf in den Beschichtungsprozeß zurückgeführt werden kann bzw. als Hochdruckflüssigkeit in den Kreislauf rückgeführt wird. Die erfindungsgemäße Lösung hat den Vorteil, daß Dendriten auf schonende Weise betriebssicher vom Band entfernbar sind, keine Abfälle entstehen und Beschädigungen am Band vermieden werden. <IMAGE>
