powder coating oven gas burner

Modulating Gas And Air Burners At TD Finishing

We are one of the country’s leading suppliers of powder coating plants. Therefore, we understand the importance of efficiency in heated processes. As well as, the role plant design has on optimising temperature control. Accurate temperature control is key to achieving tight tolerances in temperatures. Fully modulating systems allow much greater control over traditional “High-low” burners. All TD Finishing curing ovens and powder coating systems are supplied with modulating Gas and Air Burner. As well as, all of our drying ovens and any heated stages of the spray pre-treatment systems. 

 

Latest APL Technology

The drying, pre treatment systems and powder coating oven gas burner uses the latest ‘Air Pressure Lead’ (APL) monoblock gas valve technology. Changes in process heat demand are transmitted to the burner by a modulating signal. This connects to a motor speed controller which varies the speed of the burner combustion air fan. It increases or decreases the burner windbox differential air pressure. As a result, the package gas burners offer flexible, high turndown control for process heating applications. Giving minimum running consumption during production, but with high-power output available on demand. Particularly during system start-up. We can offer 24/7 timers for automated system heat up prior to manufacturing operations.

Safety is a Key Feature

Safety is another key feature of our package-gas modulating burners. As such, the burners comprise of a burner windbox, combustion air fan, a compact monoblock air / gas valve gas train and burner controls. Including the combustion air fan motor speed controller, mounted within a control panel. For ease of access during use, we can supply our burners with a remote panel if you require one.
Standard control items include a burner controller ignition transformer and differential air pressure switch. Two 3-way air valves perform safety checks on the air pressure switch in both open and closed modes each time the burner fires. This allows the burners independent operation of the combustion air fan in conjunction with oven /dryer main recirculation fans.

 

Individual Control

On our powder coating systems, you’ll find a modular immersion tube burner. This includes a cylindrical burner assembly that can withstand typical tank heating operating environments. Alongside this, a compact monoblock gas valve train, burner controls mounted in a protective control box, exhaust damper and an exhaust fan which can be coupled to multiple burner installations all the while maintaining individual control. The burner fires through a submersed stainless steel tube designed to give optimum surface area and heat transfer through the process.

Power & Free Conveyorised Powder Coating Systems

Conveyorised Powder Coating Systems – Power & Free

Are you looking for a powder coating conveyor plant? TD Finishing are proud to be powder coating equipment manufacturers. Our conveyorised powder coating systems are incredibly popular. However, we have a wide variety of powder coating equipment for sale. If you require further flexibility, you may wish to invest in Power & Free. This is something that we have a vast amount of experience with. The system uses two tracks, one above the other. Power & Free allows us more flexibility with your system. The top or “power” track, contains a drive chain. This chain enables the movement of product flight bars. These are located within the lower, “Free” conveyor track.

TD Finishing have an impressive portfolio of clientele. In fact, we have provided powder coating systems to businesses all over the world. As a result, we have become a very experienced and versatile business when it comes to providing sites with powder coating solutions.

 

Conveyor Systems

By using switches and multiple drive chains, you allow production to flow around the factory space better. They also remove the rigidity of a single chain monorail conveyor. On a traditional monorail conveyor system, the product is restricted to the single path of the drive chain. With Power & Free, a product can bypass certain processes. It can deliver products to a particular area of the factory for assembly, inspection or packing. For a conveyorised powder coating line this means the product can be treated individually depending on its specific process requirements.  

 

Bespoke Solutions

In a recent Fusion Bonded Epoxy installation, the client’s product could vary in thickness by up to 10mm. Following spray pre-treatment, the drying oven was also utilised as a pre-heat. The flexibility of the Power & Free Conveyorised Powder Coating Systems means it is possible to vary the dwell time in the oven to ensure sufficient heat is transferred into the product. The variable transfer speed also gave the flexibility to deliver the product to the powder coating booth before it loses the heat required to fuse the powder primer. The variance in product gauge also needed a track system that could allow for variable cooling time before applying the topcoat powder.  

 

Overhead Conveyors

A Power & Free system is good for heavier products. This is because it makes loading and unloading operations safer. The power track delivers the flight bar to the stationary load or unload station. The operator is then free to load very heavy products. This is usually with a loading crane or integrated drop section. Once loaded, the flight bar is released back into the coating system. The stationary flight bar means the line density can be increased easily. This is ideal for lighter products. 

 

High Specifications

Our powder coating systems for sale can meet a wide range of requirements. In fact, we have lots of efficient drying and powder coating ovens available too. Products are loaded into the ovens in echelon. As a result, the amount of oven volume is minimised. This space is usually empty. You can use the ovens to pre-heat or cure paint without altering the process times the flight bar spends in the pre-treatment plant. Spray pre-treatment systems have set treatment time requirements. These can be kept consistent with Power & Free regardless of the product thickness. 

There is the option to supply TD Finishing powder coating equipment with Power & Free Conveyorised Powder Coating Systems. These systems include the Pretreatment plant, drying ovens, curing ovens, infrared oven and spray booths.  Regardless of what you choose, you can be sure that our high specification systems will not let you down.

Finishing Plant Replacement

Finishing Plant Replacement

Looking to invest in a finishing plant? Maybe you’re struggling with an ageing powder coating plant or paint finishing system, or perhaps you need a drying or curing oven replacement? People often overlook powder coating systems maintenance, upgrades, and replacements. However, these assets can be an unforeseen disaster for production when they do go wrong. Obsolete parts and long-lead times can lead to further woes when a suitable maintenance spares package has not been kept well stocked.

 

Efficient Service To Suit Your Needs

One of our clients made contact with TD Finishing to place an order for a replacement curing oven. The oven needed to be up and running within 4 weeks. This order is one that we consider quite tall. However, working from customers dimensioned sketches the equipment was designed, delivered, installed and running within the allotted time.

The curing oven was supplied with a much smaller, modern electrical control panel. This was compliant to the relevant standards. As highly efficient modulating gas & air burners, td’s negative-pressure air-seals were also supplied. The result, a completely upgraded, modernised powder curing oven.

It all ended well in this instance. However, most breakdowns and plant failures can turn into a huge headache for any size of business. If you fail to service and maintain burners and fans, a dip or spray pre-treatment system can have serious, long term financial consequences.

 

The Importance Of Finishing Plant Maintenance

There are many ways that a poorly maintained paint plant can effect your final product finish. For example, dirty tanks and blocked nozzles inside a spray pre-treatment system can often be hard to diagnose when the finishing plant is running. However, when the water quality in the tank degrades, the adhesion of paint or powder will be slowly heading towards failure. This may be in the form of rejected components or eventual failure in the field, under warranty. Anything from a day to months’ worth of production could be at risk due to poor maintenance and quality control.

 

Temperature Uniformity Survey

The results of unmaintained drying oven and curing oven burners are more obvious. Failing to monitor or regularly check an oven’s temperature uniformity, can lead to wet components entering the powder booth. It can also lead to uncured components leaving the curing oven. Heat cycling or replacement fans drastically alter temperature distribution. Therefore, it’s important to regularly carry out a Temperature Uniformity Survey (TUS. You can then make sure your ovens are running to the correct commissioned specification.

 

Wide Variety Of Equipment Available

So, if you have any concerns over ageing equipment, are looking for a replacement, or would just like to check your finishing plant performance & safety, then td can offer replacement or service and maintenance packages for any of the following;

  • Dip Pretreatment
  • Spray Pretreatment
  • Drying Ovens
  • Powder Coating Ovens
  • Conveyor Systems
  • Water demineralisation

spray booth suppliers

Spray Booth Suppliers | TD Finishing

Looking for spray booth suppliers? TD Finishing can help. Our team proudly installed a robotic wet paint spray booth for a prestigious door manufacturer. As leading powder coating system suppliers, we are proud to go the extra mile when it comes to installing industrial finishing plants. We can supply all sorts of spray painting equipment and can provide you with a system that ensures the complete finishing process is perfect from start to finish. Our finishing systems include pre-treatment plants, drying ovens, curing ovens, box ovens, infrared ovens, conveyor systems, and spray booths.

 

Why Should You Invest In A Spray Booth For Your Business?

A spray booth increases productivity and turnaround times. We design our paint booths to offer the user a controlled environment. This makes it much easier to apply the coating to components and surfaces. Designating a painting environment also means that you can control and contain any hazardous materials. At the same time, preventing any debris from compromising the coverage and quality of the paint application. Looking to increase the consistency of their wet-spray finish, our client also wanted an increase in their production throughput (to one door every 65 seconds). Their new paint facility consists of a power & free conveyor with indexing through two spray booths, a flash off tunnel, an infrared oven and a water-mist surface-hardening system.

 

State-Of-The-Art Paint Plant System

The booths house two ABB wet paint spraying robots. These robotic paint machines are pre-programmed for painting every size and colour of door in the client’s range. Also being installed, was a paint-kitchen with state of the art delivery system. The HMI allow the operators to check the paint finishing systems parameters and adjust at the touch of a button. Whilst the 6 paint pots allow for a quick colour change. Furthermore, the client was supplied with 4 paint pots for dedicated colours and two for less frequently needed colours. Meaning they can use one whilst the other system was being cleaned for the next colour run.

 

Maximum Efficiency

A door perfectly lends itself to the use of an Infrared Gas-catalytic Paint Drying Oven. We manufacture our paint drying ovens with flameless infrared panels and arrange them in a matrix of rows to ensure both faces dry evenly. To be able to adjust each panel individually as a percentage of output means that during commissioning, the system can be setup to the customers exact requirements with a maximum efficiency.

 

Reducing Production Time

The water mist hardener follows the paint drying oven usage and works to harden and cool the paint’s surface. As a result, this reduces the time product must wait on the line before it could be handled and then packed for shipping. TD Finishing was able to assist the customer with trials prior to their order. Therefore, giving the customer peace of mind that the new wet spray painting plant worked before installation.

 

Increased Efficiency

The new painting facility now means the clients products can be taken off the line ready for packing and shipping. Without having to wait days for the paint to sufficiently harden. Therefore, reducing factory space requirements all the while increasing the capability to produce doors in any colour and on-demand.
