Infrared Powder Coating Curing Furnaces
The Infrared, a single word of 3 different results, SHORT WAVE, MEDIUM WAVE and LONG WAVE; LONG WAVE usage (radio waves), MEDIUM WAVE is considered to be new; it has past approximately 40 years , we still benefit from it (ufo heaters) and SHORT WAVE is known by everyone, we have heard about it’s benefits, power, effect, although we have ideas about what can be used to make this energy technology; infrared mechanisms and inventions have not yet taken place in our lives . Short infrared wavelength while reflecting to any object loses just 15% of it’s energy, while middle wave loses 40% and long wave loses 60% of the energy. From here, it is seen that short wave infrared radiation is more advantageous in terms of energy efficiency. Since the beginning of 2016, TEKNİKEL MAKİNE has been conducting our R & D studies with our expert staff in order to use the energy of SHORT WAVE INFRARED Fatom in many fields. As a result of our completed works, we offer many innovations and improvements in all the machinery and equipment used in our industry, where the heat treatment is between 50-250 Cº. In our CURING and DRYING furnaces, we achieve the results not only by heat treatment but also by playing with wavelengths without disturbing the structure of the material and it’s chemical coating. Our rays work up to the middle of the material and quickly begin to heat both surfaces. Keep in mind that the temperature in the oven has no effect on curing. Direct heating of the material is the right solution.Since our machines are equipped with short wave infrared lamps, it brings differences and innovations on many factors mentioned below. First of all, it doesn’t have any damage to human’s health, no gas emissions are used; it is appropriate to all standarts, no need to take some extra measures. Our technology works with 380 volt industry electric energy and it captures the heat values mentioned. There is no fire section, that is presented in convectional ovens, therefore, there is no problem in the factory. It does not store the heat energy in a single area in high amounts, transfers it to the material in the most effective and short way and starts to consume its energy. The transfer of natural gas use is a risky and expensive energy source. It requires a certain project and serious financial means, such as the cost of shooting a new natural gas line for a medium-sized company, including the project cost between 50 thousand to 150 thousand TL. However, in this technology only the electric energy is enough. Nowadays, the usage of natural gas depends on foreign sources. It is not very difficult to predict future development.
The most important features that distinguish us from old methods are:
- Silent operation;
- No maintenance, no malfunction, no cost;
- It is healthy, does not contain harmful release;
- Rapid reaction, 190 Cº / 18 min;
- Technology life is long – 50 years;
- Does not interfere with air, does not consume oxygen in the environment;
- Extends paint life;
- Improves paint quality, suitable for all types of standards (salt test, adhesion test, etc.);
- Energy saving (up to 30% compared to the convectional ovens);
- Multiple color curing at once;
- Differences in zones +/ – 2 Cº;
- Increased quality after finishing;
- Control of each desired module separately, regardless of the oven length.
