Paint and powder coating features

Relevancy:  

Fighting loss of powder: small production runs, frequent colour changeovers, shorter delivery times are all factors conspiring to make more difficult, the management of powder feed. Loss of powder or its cross-contamination as between different coloured batches is discussed. Sintering and agglomeration in the powder feed lines and cyclones are among the causes of such loss. Manual cleaning is uneconomic and alternatives such as brushes or scrapers are not only ineffectual but can damage the equipment. Recommended solution is periodic flushing with polymer granules which is described. The merits of a floor mounted conveyor are extolled. Scrubbing exhaust air from paint shops for VOC removal: alternative approaches are examined including biological oxidation processes, biofilters and bio-washing plants. A table compares in some detail the operating and cost parameters of biological and thermal regenerative scrubbing operations. Carbon dioxide emissions are significantly greater for thermal plants using gas or fuel oil as a histogram shows. Another histogram shows the performance of bio-washers which reduce exhaust organic concentrations to 12 to 16 mg per cubic meter. Against this, biological plants usually occupy greater floorspace. New design of automatic spray guns are smaller and lighter weight than conventional units and their air atomisation is highly efficient.
