Steel Pickling

Maksteel is the proud owner of a 491-foot steel pickling line, located at our Dearborn, MI facility. Steel pickling occurs when carbon, black steel is taken and processed it through a pickle line to improve its surface condition.

In 2020, several pieces of our pickling line were upgraded in order to help us better serve our customers. These changes were designed to:

  • Eliminate Mechanical Pitting
  • Dryness from Edge to Edge (no more pooling in the middle)
  • Foundation leveling to improve coil threading


Parsytec, our advanced coil monitoring system, is used to record specific defects down the coil. This technology is also housed in Dearborn. Because it runs reports on every coil on the line, customers are able to request these with their orders.
