Manufactures underground boring equipment for gas and water lines. Used “hot potting” or manually mixed 2 paint components to be able to spray two colors: yellow and black.
This company has one booth for top coating and would manually mix the black and yellow paints. It took well over an hour to change out the colors. Parts being fabricated were staged all over the plant waiting to be painted. Due to backlog and space contingencies, some items were forced to be stored outside. Rainy days would slow down the process even more.
Air Power Solution
Air Power, Inc. suggested using a Graco Promix 2KE with gun flush box and utilize drum pumps they already had. Mixing on demand out of a 55 gallon drum of each component, improved the ability to change colors in less time than it takes to bring a new part to be coated.
Instead of using a spray booth to paint their products, they use exhaust plenum. Most colors used are enamel solvent based and the products painted are made up of 50% expanded steel, which is difficult to coat and very time consuming. The HVLP non electrostatic spray gun they were using produced a large amount of overspray.
Air Power Solution
Air Power Inc. introduced the Ransburg RansFlex 45kV, an electrostatic spray gun with much less overspray. The 45kV is better on expanded metal and less faraday cage resistance.
