Use of Open Circuit Potential for Measurement (OCP) Technique for Arriving at Optimal Pickling Time of Carbon Steel Wire Rods

HCl acid pickling is widely used for steel wire rod due to advantages like lower cost along with faster and complete cleaning before subsequent drawing. Optimizing the pickling operation for higher productivity and lower WPL generation are major challenges for the wire industry. Existing methods used to identify pickling time are time-consuming and experienced based. This paper explores the possibility of using the OCP technique for determining wire rod pickling time.
