I have worked with Emerald Galvanizing for almost 20 years. In that time they have become a trusted and valued vendor/partner of ours. We run a lot of parts through them and they are always able to help out when we run into a crunch. Their accounting person, Ann, is fantastic and always there to help. I highly recommend them as a valued supplier.

We've worked with Emerald Galv for 11 years, they do small jobs and are able to take care of sandblasting when parts come to them rusty or painted or with mill lacquer on new black iron pipes. A one-stop shop, they have the expertise to know more about what is needed than a lot of their customers and they don't mind taking the time to talk to customers with small projects to ensure that their results meet or exceed customer needs. Thank you guys!

Emerald specializes in galvanizing fabrications which are usually difficult and often not economical to produce for most galvanizers. We galvanize all sizes & weights of fabrications, and specialize in small parts such as screws, nuts, bolts, washers, and anchor chain (and anchors).  Chain and anchors are $1.25 per lb. Our minimum order is $125.00.

Most small parts (including threaded parts) are run in our perforated buckets and then are centrifuged immediately after hot dip galvanizing.  The centrifuge rapidly spins the buckets to remove excess zinc. The centrifuge process keeps sharp edges from forming on fabrications and keeps bolt threads clean. This saves you labor charges to clean up parts.

Larger fabrications are usually wired or chained up before lowering them into the kettle for galvanizing. Our overhead cranes slowly lift these fabrications out of the molten zinc at an angle so that excess zinc runs off. Our galvanizing engineers and shop workers have been here over 18 years.

Typical types of products we galvanize include:
  • Brackets & Angle Clips
  • Fasteners: Rods, Bolts, Screws, Washers
  • Beams & Tubes
  • Embedments & Pipes
  • Frames & Cover Plates
  • Rebar & Anchor Bolts
  • Gratings & Wire Forms
  • Chains & Anchors
  • Stampings & Castings
  • Angle & threaded rod

The minimum diameter for galvanizing fasteners is 3/8” and the minimum size for galvanizing wood screws is #18. Bolts and chains up to a Rockwell hardness grade of 40 are usually acceptable to galvanize. Call us for our advice on other grades.

We are the only galvanizer in the West that hot dips anchor chain. We only galvanize up to 300 ft of chain at one time, if your chain is 3/8" or less. Chain over 3/8" will need to be cut in half so that we put less chain into our centrifuge on each dip run. The less chain we put through the process, the higher the quality.  There is a maximum weight that can be centrifuged at one time.

We can cut your chain for you, and refer you to a steel shop that can re-link it for you with a galvanized link. This is not expensive, and the transportation back and forth between our shop and theirs is free. Galvanizing chain takes a minimum of 2 weeks in the off-season, and up to 4 weeks in the Spring & Summer months. We encourage customers to bring their anchor chain to our shop in the Winter.
