Automated paint gun washer
|Cleaning paint guns is a labor intensive process that can generate significant volumes of solvent waste. Companies have found that automated paint gun washing systems can significantly reduce labor costs, solvent usage, gun clogging and worker exposure to toxic chemicals.
|Solvent distillation units are often the single best option for anyone with a coating operation. If you are coating a product, you are probably using some kind of solvent. Using a column can reduce your waste and cut back on your solvent purchases. Distillation units are available in batch sizes from 2 to 250 gallons.
|Extend solvent life through staged rinsing. By rotating three containers of solvent, emptying the dirtiest containers first, and continuing to use those that are less dirty, staged rinsing allows you to use less solvent or cleaning solution.
