Aircraft Wheels & Brakes Powder Coating – Case Study 20708

by bettereng1neer1ng / 12 August 2015 / No Comments

Background:

This company is a leading supplier of aircraft wheels and brakes and related hydraulic products.

Parts Cleaning Problem:

This plant needed to clean and coat a variety of parts prior to paint (powder coating.) The steel parts needed to be iron phosphate coated.  The aluminum parts needed a Chromium III conversion coating.

The System/Solution:

Two (2) side-by-side conveyor washers.  They are identical 5-stage C-14-S2/S2/S2/S2/DH systems except they are mirror imaged.  The stages are wash, rinse, phosphate (or conversion coat), rinse and dry.  The parts then move around the return conveyor.
