Dry separation pays off: 5 reasons to choose EcoDryScrubber
EcoDryScrubber separates 100% wet paint overspray without using water or coagulation chemicals.
Polymer specialist Rehau utilizes dry separation in the painting of bumpers carried out for several OEMs at its factories at Viechtach, Germany, and in South Africa. Commencing in the autumn of 2010 dry separation will be integrated for top coat line overspray by the first auto manufacturer.
For decades pulverized media have been successfully used in powder paint materials, for example. The EcoDryScrubber principle utilizes the natural binding properties of lime powder and with this precoating material 100% paint separation is achieved. Irrespective of the paint process involved and without the need for additional specifications, binding of all types of wet paint overspray is possible.
No ignition sources in the painting area, no high tension electrical environment, no operational hazards: the EcoDryScrubber is a safe system that can be fully operated, without difficulty and without special statutory permits. The supply of fresh and the removal of saturated precoat material is automatic via silos in a safe closed loop system.
Unaffected by climatic conditions
Recirculation allows up to 95% of process air to be reused in the paint spray booth. The volume of fresh air drawn from outside is correspondingly small. As a result process conditions are kept constant and remain unaffected by climatic conditions.
Compact and energy saving
As such a high proportion of air is recirculated, air supply and air conditioning units are smaller, heat recovery systems eliminated. Plant cross sections can therefore be reduced by up to 35% and savings of up to 60% achieved in spray booth energy requirements.
Retrofitting made easy
EcoDryScrubber requires no additional space when incorporated in brown field projects. Vertical arrangement of the filter makes side access unnecessary and the filter box can be designed to fit within the dimensions of the space available.
