A laboratory-scale workstation has been constructed to study the acid pickling of steel sheets under conditions that are analogous to the production line. The weight loss due to the scale removal as well as the overpickling rate has been measured for various steel grades. The role of various process parameters like immersion time and pulling rate has been studied.
