Membracon Filtration System

‘Water Filtration’ is a term that refers to the filtration of impurities, contaminants, and chemicals from any water source to improve its quality and make it fit for its intended use. Types of Water Filtration Systems Water is the only natural resource that is used universally for multiple purposes. Water is a significant component for many crucial processes in industrial and commercial businesses, and not just for drinking purposes. Each water filtration system varies from the other to subsequently achieve…

Understanding Effluent

Effluent is a byproduct of wastewater after its treatment. It is commonly known as ‘trade water’. Effluent is produced and discharged by any industrial or commercial premises into the natural water cycle by letting it flow directly into the rivers or seas. Effluent wastewater needs treatment even before it enters the sewers. Wastewaters from large-scale commercial industries like manufacturing and mining are composed of contaminants like chemicals, detergents, greases, oils, heavy metal rinses and solids. These harmful solvents and solids…

e-coating VS powder coating - what's the difference - water filtration

Electrocoating (e-coating) and powder coating are both used to apply either paint or a layer of protection to a part. Both processes require the part to be cured at a high temperature. They are often used together in processes such as Industrial manufacturing and radiator production. The way they are applied and the reasoning for application is the main difference between the two processes. There are other ways you can paint a part such as wet spray but we’ll be…

Water Filtration For E-coating processes - bacteria growth in e-coating

During the electrocoating process there is a mix of chemicals and substances with parts continuously being pulled through the production line. This mix can cause bacteria within the paint tank, jeopardising the quality of the finish. This blog takes a look at how UV light can control bacteria within processes such as e-coating. How Bacteria Grows In Water Bacteria growth is more extensive under the following conditions: Warm Temperature A Low Flow Rate The Absence Of Bacterial Control Solutions The…

process tanks in electrocoating

It’s common to find lined tanks within the electrocoating industry. Lined tanks are used to protect the integrity of the outer steel tank from the sometimes corrosive chemicals within the pre-treatment process. They can also be used in an e-coat paint bath to protect against voltages leaking to the outer skin. Most process tanks that are lined have been installed a precaution, as a preventative solution to these potential problems. Correctly Lining A Tank Used For Electrocoating Tanks can be…

anode cells in electrocoating

Electrocoating is a method of applying paint in a paint bath or it’s also referred to as an ecoat tank. Electricity charges the particles to deposit paint equally onto the metallic parts, the charge is determined by voltage and current. This blog takes a look at the use of anodes in E-coating and the different types of anode cells that are available. The Use of Anodes In The E-coating Process Electrocoating (E-coat) paint is the base layer of paint applied…
