Powder coating is the direct application of powdered paint on to a metallic part by charging the paint particles with electrostatic electricity, which is applied by a powder spray gun. These particles are attracted to the grounded part. The coated part is then heated to a degree, which when the paint particles melt, flow and are fused into a high quality uniform protective finish that is aesthetically pleasing and highly durable. Finishes utilizing this method are available in a variety of colors and textures.
Electrostatic Powder Spray Conveyor System
This system utilizes a powder spray booth and a curing oven connected by an overhead conveyor. Parts are hung on racks on the overhead conveyor. These parts are carried by conveyor to the powder booth for coating either manually or automatically and then to the oven for curing. The conveyor chain speed for is variable from 1 to 16 feet per minute to accommodate part size, mass and powder curing specifications.
