Reduction of atmospheric pollution in the painting and coating sector
Technological systems for the abatement of fumes, VOC and dust from painting and coating operations
VOC abatement from spray painting
Spray painting is used by many companies to cover different types of materials. This process involves the emission of dust and VOC that must be treated through special filters and purifiers.
Paints used in this process have different characteristics and, depending on their composition, can be explosive or non-explosive in nature. In order to design and implement a suitable extraction and treatment system, it is important to know this data because if such explosive dust is present, an ATEX system must be implemented.
The nature of the dust is usually indicated on the paint safety data sheet. In the absence of this information, special analyses must be carried out on a dust sample.
Dust and VOC abatement from methacrylate production and execution of protective coatings
The painting & coating sector not only includes companies that carry out painting operations, but also all those enterprises that deal with paint production.
The market offers different types of paint. Each is formed by different components whose processing involves the emission of specific pollutants..
The production of methacrylate and thermal spray coatings (a coating used in many industrial applications to provide protection against corrosion), involves the emission of titanium dioxide and calcium carbonate powders which must be abated before emission in the work place and the atmosphere.
Protective coatings: VOC emissions oxidation
In the automotive sector, vehicles are manufactured that are widely used in our daily lives. The production of these vehicles involves a whole series of components being manufactured that are protected by special coating operations. These processes involve the emission of fumes and VOC that can be oxidised through special technologies.
Reduction of atmospheric pollution in the painting sector
In the previous sections, we presented an overview of the most common pollutants in the painting & galvanic sector and technologies to reduce them.
The latter are multiple and the scope varies depending on the characteristics of the pollutants and the production system used.
For this reason, it is necessary to rely on professionals who can assess the existing conditions and propose suitable systems for extraction and abatement to solve the various problems.
Tecnosida®, thanks to its vast experience in the field, is the ideal supplier for the design and implementation of tailor-made systems to adapt emissions to the limits set by current regulations.
