Fulton County Expanding to House New Pickling Line

Fulton County Processing, Delta, Ohio, will install a new hydrochloric push/pull pickling line set to be operational in late 2014. The $20 million project will require an 82,000-square-foot expansion of the plant, which will house the new line, provide for additional storage space and increase rail car capacity.

“This new line will not only increase the production capabilities of the plant, but it will allow us to capture a significant amount of business that has been leaving the area,” says Jeff Kunkel, general manager at FCP.

The new line, a four-tank Butech Bliss/Nelson engineered pickling line, will feature anti-coil break roll technology, and will handle a maximum coil weight of 74,000 pounds. The maximum product width will be 72 inches in thicknesses from 0.060 inch to 0.375 inch, but thickness capabilities extend up to 0.500-inch at 50-inch maximum width. Also featured will be a Parsytec in-line inspection system and a shape correction unit for material up to 0.250-inch thick, which will guarantee superior product quality, the company claims.

FCP currently houses and operates three slitting lines and one pickling line. The new push/pull line will increase the annual pickling capacity from 120,000 tons to nearly 500,000 tons, pushing the annual plant capacity to over one million tons.

“Expansion has always been our goal,” says Kunkel. “Significant customer input has been put into planning this new capacity, and we are thrilled to see it now come to fruition.”
