We began a relationship with Tecnar during the early stages of the Galvalibs development to fill a need for real time zinc pot chemistry feedback. Over the years, we have worked closely with Tecnar to upgrade to the latest version of the Galvalibs. Tecnar customer service has been a high priority throughout the entire process and they have made several site visits to ensure proper setup, operation and maintenance of the system. Since the initial commissioning was successful and the Galvalibs proved reliable, we purchased a second system. Tecnar continues to hold customer service as a high priority to ensure we have reliable systems.
