Engineering of a Finishing System Used to Apply a Protective Coating to a Manufactured Product

Design, Supply & Installation of Turnkey Industrial Finishing Systems

Known worldwide for our design and engineering expertise, Custom Thermal Applications built the high throughput, large component automated paint spray system pictured here to meet the exact specifications of a protective coating application. Our engineering team worked in close partnership with the customer to identify all system requirements and provide them with a thoughtfully engineered solution that would streamline their operations and add value to their process.

In addition to two separate clean rooms, one with a 1,935 ft² and the other with a 670 ft² footprint, this multi-station system incorporates more than 1,900' of conveying equipment (~1/3 of a mile!). Three spray booths, each with dimensions of 56' in length, 18' in width, to accommodate priming, base coat, and clearcoat application. The three ovens: dry-off, prime-bake, and final cure, feature 4" insulated 20 ga satin coat panel construction, and each measures more than 100' long. Other components include a washing station, 3 cooling tunnels, 3 flash tunnels, and ionizing booth, and a neutralizing system. We also engineered an advanced HVAC system to keep the environmental conditions in the ideal range for maximum adhesion and optimal results.

Engineered, built, and assembled by the team at CTA, this turnkey industrial finishing system was designed for energy savings, low maintenance, and operation. It will meet the needs of the customer now and well into the future, and has become one of their most valued assets.
