CONTROLLING COST OF POWDER COATING
Improve equipment efficiency to reduce energy consumption. Use VFD motor controls where appropriate to slow fans, pumps and conveyors.
Change to low or no heat pre treatment chemicals if they meet your performance targets.
Backflow rinse save waste eater
Set the dry off temperature as close to 212 to save energy however to ensure the parts are dry off oven air movement and exhaust to promote faster drying.
Zone cure oven to allow lighter parts to use less energy.
Use automictic gun triggering to reduce overspray powder.
Use automatic gun positioning to increase transfer efficiency
Improve part ground to increase transfer efficiency.
Use better coating material following
Lower specific gravity
Better hiding power at lower film builds
Better particle size distribution and control for improved recovery cyclone efficiency
Use single coat system
Plug compressed air leaks
Better powder sieving
Reliable equipment with better maintenance
Improved process control
