Galvanize Removal

I have some galvanized pipe i need to weld and then continue to heat up real hot on a regular basis. How can I remove the galvanize? I glass bead blasted the outside and that seemed to work pretty good I think but it there something I can dip them in to eat away any leftover stuff and anything on the inside?

What sort of acid and where would I get it?

I am making a small gas forge. These pipes will hold the burners.

The only time I have had stuff acid washed was when I paid for it so I do not know the name. Your gonna want to get that pipe REALLY CLEAN for what your making.

Maybe a muriadic acid or the like. check with a local metal platter. They would be in the know on what to use.

Muriatic Acid will take off the zinc. Not sure how to do it without leaving a "zinc residue" though.. maybe wash it a few times?

isnt that stuff really nasty? Like inhalation hazard bad? its HCl, so its like take the skin off your hand bad, then has nasty fumes that will kill you bad. I'd think you'd need to completely submerse the metal too. Maybe the galvanized welding is the lesser of two evils....

maybe check the local steel supply stores and see if they have any scrap Schedule laying around from other orders.

Drink a glass of milk before and after welding or grinding anything galvanized and you won't get sick.

It is nasty stuff. I have a tank that I built that has a solution of Muriatic Acid and water. I use it to clean mill scale off my bumpers.

I use a respirator and face shield when messing with it. Yeah.. it burns the cuts in your hands a bit if you submerge them.

You could also fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mix of acid/water and spray the pipe down outdoors and then rinse with water. I used to clean my bumpers that way.

But.. um.. yeah.. Muriatic Acid is nasty.
