Powder Coating Paint Grinding System | Rieco

Industry: Paint

Client: Major Coating Paint manufacturer

Location: Pune, India

Customer requirement:

Grinding of powder coating paint chips into desired fine size of 120 microns with capacity of 500 kg/hr under controlled temperature as the nature of the product is heat sensitive.

Product  Powder Coating Paint Chips 
Input size  1-2 sq. cm with 1-2 mm thickness
Fineness  99.9% (-) 120 Microns
Capacity  500-600 kg/hr. 
Air Temp. to mill inlet  12-15 Deg.C 

Challenges

  • To maintain the texture post grinding.
  • To achieve narrow bandwidth of the particle size distribution for the product.
  • Achieve Matte finish without affecting production rate capacity.
  • Maintain controlled temperature to prevent over milling of the grinding material,
  • To achieve high grinding intensity within optimized airflow conditions, and highly efficient classification.

Solution

RIECO offered complete grinding system to efficiently grind powder coatings chips. The system comprised of Air Classifying Mill with automatic feeder system in pair with cyclone collector &  dust collection bag filter. The system was well equipped with all instrument & equipment to control temperature and monitor overall plant.

System description:

Air Classifying Mill is ideally suitable for this purpose and has been the instrument of choice by powder coatings manufacturers. The material to be ground is fed into the mill through the suction feed with the help of rotary air lock valve. The material proceeds to the grinding chamber where grinding action (size reduction) takes place by the virtue of impact and shearing forces. These forces are generated between hammers mounted on a rotor disc and a multiple deflector liner on the inner lining of the housing. After the grinding process, fine particles pass through the air classifier wheel where gradation takes place; only the finer particles pass through rotating classifier wheel, whereas coarse particles get retained in the grinding chamber.

Whole system works under the negative pressure system also known as vacuum pressure system generated by centrifugal fan located in series after the bag filter which generates the required suction.

High Efficiency Cyclone collects 95 to 98% of the material. The extra fines are collected at the bag filter. Thus, achieving minimum product loss and dust free operation.
