Fluidized bed coating
A non-porous protective layer
Fluidized bed coating is a process in which pre-heated components are immersed in a bath containing a powder. Air is blown in through the porous floor of the bath, which keeps the powder particles moving about so that they behave like a liquid. When the sandblasted and heated component is immersed in this fluidized bed, the powder particles melt together to produce a non-porous layer about 400 μm thick.
Efficient and with no powder wasted
We apply Rilsan®, Resicoat® or Abcite® coatings to large and small components using the fluidized bed technique. In particular, it is a controlled method for applying a coating both internally and externally in a single operation to components with surfaces that are difficult to get at. We use this technique particularly for pipeline components, connectors and auxiliary pieces. This process lets us coat components up to 6 metres in length and with diameters of about 1.5 metres.
