The site or warehouse for steel storage should be selected in a clean and well-drained place, away from factories and mines that produce harmful gases or dust. Weeds and all debris should be removed on the site to keep the steel clean;
In the warehouse, it is not allowed to be piled together with materials that are corrosive to steel such as acids, alkalis, salts, and cement. Different types of steel should be stacked separately to prevent confusion and prevent contact corrosion;
Large section steel, rails, steel plates, large-diameter steel pipes, forgings, etc. can be stacked in the open air;
Small and medium-sized steel bars, wire rods, steel bars, medium-caliber steel pipes, steel wires, and wire ropes can be stored in a well-ventilated shed, but must be covered with thatch;
Some small steel products, thin steel plates, steel strips, silicon steel sheets, small-diameter or thin-walled steel pipes, various cold-rolled and cold-drawn steel products, and high-priced and corrosive metal products can be stored in the warehouse;
The warehouse should be selected according to the geographical conditions. Generally, an ordinary closed warehouse is used, that is, a warehouse with a roof, a wall, tight doors and windows, and a ventilation device;
The warehouse requires ventilation in sunny days, closed and moisture-proof in rainy days, and a suitable storage environment is always maintained.
