Thermal imaging of enameling furnaces

The performance of industrial enameling furnaces may gradually decline over time.

This may result in higher energy consumption (read increased enameling cost) and reduced quality of the coated surface.

In extreme cases the enameling furnace may even unexpectedly break down, because insulation has been damaged and/or worn out.

Therefore we suggest regular inspections & thermal imaging to identify major heat bridges and other spots with possible insulation issues.

Challenges for coating companies

The German coating magazine “Besser Lackieren” did a survey among their readers about expected challenges in 2019.

Below a summary of their conclusions in descending order of importance :

1) Lack of skilled labor
2) Increase cost of raw material
3) Higher energy prices
4) Increased legislation
5) Increased competition
6) Reduce turn-over
