Automatic enameling plant for water heaters

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.

Example of power and free conveyor

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.

Enameling furnaces

Enameling furnaces

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”
