The RAM coppering tank is a high performance chemical coppering tank designed to handle a single wire. RAMs are generally integrated within a drawing line but can also be supplied as a separate entity or with independent pay-off and take-up as a stand-alone coppering line.
There are two different version based on the maximum achievable speed.
The first version, RAM, is a compact multi section tank with a deep bath process where the pulleys are submerged in the liquid and the maximum speed 18 m/s (3500 fpm).
The other version, RAM-HS, is a multiple tank line designed for high speed up to 33 m/s (6500 fpm), where the washing and rising are done with the liquid flowing against the direction of the wire.
Moreover, the RAM-HS coppering sections have all the mechanical parts outside the bath in the order to lengthen the life of components against corrosion and deterioration.
