Ultrasonic sieving of powder coatings

Russell Finex’s high-performance ultrasonic sieving solution helps a leading powder coatings company to optimize its production capacity and improve product quality

A leading Indian paints and coatings manufacturing company plans to develop and optimize its powder coatings manufacturing facility. Established in 1945, the company is one of the largest producers of industrial paints, decorative paints, and powder coatings in the country.

Headquartered in South India, the company has more than 1000 customers in India & European countries from commercial transport, automotive, and general industries. The company manufactures three types of powder coatings, Pure Epoxy, Epoxy Polyester & Pure Polyester in various shades, gloss & finishes.

A recent investment in ultrasonic vibratory sieving technology helped the company to improve its product quality and throughput. A combination of Russell Compact Sieve® and Vibrasonic® Deblinding System efficiently sieves the fine powder, increasing throughput capacity and ensuring that the powder is free from contamination. The vibratory sieve, which is easy to strip down and clean between batches, also, therefore reduces downtime and increases productivity.

During the sieving of fine powders, the company were experiencing difficulties with its previous machinery due to not achieving the required throughput or quality. In order to solve this, the company looked for an efficient sieving solution and contacted Russell Finex for advice. Following a site visit by a Russell Finex sales engineer, it was decided the installation of the Russell Compact Sieve® with an ultrasonic deblinding system would meet the requirements and give significant benefits.
