TD Finishing Ltd are leading suppliers of powder coating facilities such as pre-treatment plants. Powder coating pre-treatment is vital to the powder coating process. In fact, if the pre-treatment isn’t completed correctly, the performance of the actual powder coating paint can be compromised.
Installing A Powder Coating Facility
We install and replace powder coating facilities for a wide range of industries. For instance, a prestigious domestic appliance manufacturer awarded TD Finishing Ltd a contract to provide their replacement powder coating facility. They opted to replace their ageing phosphate pre-treatment line in order to facilitate a wide range of powder coating requirements. At TD Finishing Ltd, we have lots of pre-treatment solutions systems to choose from. This client in particular wanted a more modern, and more environmentally friendly solution. Therefore, it was decided that an Oxsilan pre-treatment system would be the best powder coating pre-treatment plant for the job. We updated their drying and powder curing ovens, ensuring that they had a better performance too. We also upgraded their Finishing Ovens to more efficient TD Finishing ovens. These featured fully modulating gas and air burners, as well as a negative air-seal system.
5-Stage Oxsilan Spray Pre-Treatment Plant
The 5-stage Oxsilan spray pre-treatment plant offers many advantages over traditional pre-treatment lines. They can boast comparable quality to zinc-phosphating. The first advantage being the ambient bath temperature, offering lower gas consumption and running costs. Secondly, the treatment is free of hazardous metals (no heavy metal water treatment required). At the same time, it provides superior corrosion resistance on multi-metal components. It also requires no activation or passivisation stage, and has been proven in a wide variety of appliance and automotive applications, giving up to 1,000 hours salt spray test.
Pre-Treatment Plant Experts
TD Finishing fully understands what is required of the powder coating equipment in order to work with the chemistry for Oxsilan. Key factors include, spray times, extraction requirements, drain zones and a Demin water supply. All are extremely important when choosing a plant that will not only maximise efficiency, but ensure the selected coatings work to their optimal performance.
To further improve efficiency, in this instance TD Finishing also installed an air to water heat recovery system. This supplements the fully modulating burner, in the Stage-1 Alkali Degrease Cleaner, with waste heat from the powder coating oven exhaust.
The system above was delivered with a side mounted conveyor system, preventing contamination to the painted components. While a specially designed carrier was supplied to ensure the products were accurately located on to the line consistently and quickly, in a high production environment.
Providing bespoke powder coating plants is just one example of how TD Finishing Ltd go the extra mile. We’re determined to create, and install, a solution that provides you with everything your business requires.
