Conveying materials for paints and coatings

Safe handling for paints and coatings materials

Meeting the challenges of paints and coatings conveying

Bulk materials used for paints and coatings present many handling challenges for producers. Ultra-fine powders like carbon black, and high-toxicity powders like titanium dioxide, affect flowability and operator safety. Other materials like silica and iron oxides are abrasive and corrosive. Can paint and coatings manufacturers safely and efficiently convey hazardous materials and achieve high throughputs? 

An aero-mechanical conveyor (AMC) using FloDisc® Technology is a reliable way to safely  transfer sensitive materials at high throughputs for paints and coatings manufacturing. Floveyor engineered the fully enclosed design to control dust and lower safety risks while rapidly propelling materials at any elevation. The simple design of an AMC has fewer moving parts which translates to better uptime. Total batch transfers, along with easy cleaning, ensure maximum efficiency and lower maintenance costs in your process line. It’s why Floveyor is the ideal choice for energy-efficient bulk material handling of paints and coating materials.
