Extraction of wet paint overspray: RECLAIM with new fluidizing rotor
Geplaatst op 29-08-2017
New challenges lead to new solutions: During the painting of automotive axles at an automotive manufacturer, overspray is created that must be captured and entirely disposed of. In order to keep the separator functioning despite the forming of paint clumps, in this in-stance Keller Lufttechnik developed a fluidizing rotor - a solution that makes the system operate more efficiently with considerably reduced energy consumption.
Robots paint automotive axles at an automotive manufacturer. The small dimensions of the components result in a large volume of overspray that presents a challenge for the separation system. "Initially we designed a baffle plate ahead of the suction opening of the filtration system to collect excess paint deposited in front of the separator", explains Christian Zöller, Project Manager at Keller Lufttechnik Sales. "However, in practice this meant that the paint booth became heavily contaminted. The customer therefore requested a solution minus this baffle plate."
