Last week we assisted a customer in the United Kingdom with replacing all radiant tubes of their vitreous enameling furnace. Continue reading “Replacement of radiant tubes”
Flow-coating is a very efficient method, which is frequently used for applying wet enamels on e.g. cookware & water tanks. Continue reading “Flow-coating systems”
Precise powder enamel application with a robot has many benefits, such as :
– lowest specific enamel consumption
– strongly reduced over-spray
– small factory footprint
Below a short video of a recently commissioned system for baking ovens with Nordson Encore PE spray gun and Encore LT gun controller by Noto Finishing.
Nordson Corporation introduce their “nLighten” technology for the Encore manual powder coating gun range.
This kit improve the visibility during application and may so reduce rework & rejects and increase efficiency & safety.
Suitable for powder paint & powder enamel operations.More ..
Visited the Tecnargilla 2018 show in Rimini some weeks ago and saw there a new application method called “Steam Spraying”.

Depending upon the annual production volume, it might be interesting to reduce labor cost by integrating all equipment of an enameling plant for water heaters and/or solar boilers.
Such integration may be done with traditional monorail conveyors in combination with automatic transfer devices, like on the picture below.
Alternatively a so-called power & free conveyor system may be used.
This conveyor type consist of two conveyor tracks above each other.
On the lower level free cars may run, while via the power chain at the upper level the free cars may be (dis)connected and transported.
Nowadays there are P+F systems, which thanks to a very special transfer system even include the transport of products within the enameling furnace.
DTC may assist with the evaluation, which solution is most suitable for your vitreous enameling project.

Curing or firing a porcelain (vitreous) enameling coating is done in high temperature enameling furnaces.
In the early days these enameling furnaces were made of refractory bricks, due to the required firing temperature between 800 and 850 degrees Celsius.
However, such bricks are sensitive for thermal shocks and need to be heated up & cooled down very slowly.
Therefore modern enameling furnaces are nowadays made of Low Thermal Mass insulation materials, like stone wool, vermiculite & ceramic fibers. Continue reading “Enameling furnaces”
