Metal parts are used throughout a variety of industrial processes for their strength and versatility. However, metal components are also prone to environmental effects like wear and corrosion. Coating materials are designed to protect metal objects from rust, debris, sunlight, and dirt. These coating materials modify the surface properties of automobiles, planes, industrial equipment, semiconductors, and many other metallic objects.
Pumps for metal coatings must be able to handle different formulations for varying end-use environments. From electronic to industrial applications, the transfer of coating materials throughout the facility is accomplished with pumps. In addition, centrifugal pumps draw coating from a supply source to be evenly distributed over surfaces. Pumps for coating material transfer must be highly resistant to harsh metals and avoid any blockages.
Constructed with stainless steel, Kynar, and Ryton, March Pump provides equipment with high chemical resistance. Our selection of centrifugal, sealless magnetic drive pumps are designed to overcome the challenges of coating material transfer. Check them out below:
Choosing the Right Pump for Coating Material Transfer
There are a wide variety of pump designs for industrial and commercial coating usages. Pumps are used in many processes to transfer coating material throughout the facility or remove waste. In liquid spraying, pumps provide increased productivity to consistently coat surfaces with thin layers of metal.
Each coating material has its own unique chemistry and composition that require specialized handling. These corrosive fluids can react with certain pump components or cause them to degrade over time. To combat this issue, all wetted components from March Pump are constructed with high-quality stainless steel, Kynar, or Ryton. These top-quality substances can withstand harsh environments and are resistant to corrosive coatings.
Pumps for coating material transfer must provide a continuous supply of fluids with varying properties. They should be compatible with a variety of viscosities and temperatures. March Pumps’ mag-drive centrifugal pumps are constructed with high-quality materials that can tolerate temperatures up to 190F and pressures of 50 psi.
In order to produce an even coating of metal, pumps need to reliably deliver process fluids without issue. The best pumps for coating material transfer will be able to function for years without time-consuming repairs. Magnetic drive pumps have no shaft seals, preventing leaks and ensuring continuous operation. In addition, they provide contaminant-free fluid transfer for sensitive environments such as electronic manufacturing.
From 5 GPM – 200 GPM, the centrifugal pumps produced by March Pump offer high delivery rates at low pressure. The efficient design ensures reliable operation for a quicker delivery time. This is necessary for coating material transfer across many industries.
Common Industries Using Pumps for Transferring Coating Material
Coating materials provide heightened surface strength for high-contact parts. When applied, they are able to resist chemical abrasion, corrosion, electricity, and operational wear. Along with increased resistance, a metallic finish offers a glossy and polished appearance. Coating material applied to metal fasteners provide improved torque and lubrication.
Nearly every industry can make use of coating solutions to improve the physical characteristics of various metal parts. Pumps are used throughout these facilities to transfer coating materials. Some of the most common applications include:
- Consumer goods
- Food and beverage
In the electronics industry, there are a variety of metal finishing processes. These coating materials are useful for semiconductors, connectors, and other components used in the manufacturing of larger electronics. Nickel, gold, silver, platinum, copper, and other metals are pumped throughout facilities to plate electronics. These coating materials protect phones and computers from corrosion and wear, enhance conductivity, and allow for soldering.
Pumps are also used to transfer coating material throughout automotive factories. Coating materials help manufacturers protect vehicles from rust, dirt, and wear. Along with ruining the finish, this contamination endangers the fuel, brake, and electronic operating systems. To prevent this from happening, a protective layer of metal is used to coat motorcycles, cars, and other vehicles.
