Introduction: Paint Line Cleaners, Paint Gun Cleaners

Paint delivery systems utilized for the finishing of a wide variety of manufactured items such as motor vehicles, household appliances and the like are becoming increasingly more sophisticated. A typical industrial paint delivery system may comprise a central paint supply having a number of painting stations communicating therewith. Such systems can selectably deliver a variety of different paints to a given painting station and include complex fluid pathways having a number of tanks, pumps and conduits. These paint delivery systems tend to accumulate deposits in the course of their use, and such deposits can decrease, and even block, the flow of paint there through. The deposits are comprised of pigment, resins and other components of the paint. In addition to causing clogging, such deposits can also contaminate the paint color, and can break loose and cause surface defects in the finished, painted product. Accordingly, it is necessary to periodically clean the paint delivery system.

Because of the complexity of such systems, and because of the necessity of avoiding expensive down time, it is generally preferable that the systems be cleaned without disassembly. Typically, systems are cleaned by passing a variety of solvents, detergents or other such materials there through. Prior art processes usually involve numerous steps and multiple cleaning compositions; and such processes frequently do not provide full removal of deposits, particularly hardened pigment residues.

 

Paint Stripping For paint Hooks:

Continuous paint line systems, as used in many industries, typically include an overhead conveyor from which a plurality of support hooks or carries are suspended. Parts racks or hangers are positioned on the support hooks. The support hooks carry the parts racks through the paint line enclosures. Over a period, the hooks become coated with paint. With electrostatic painting systems, the paint build up on the carriers interferes with the electric current flow. This may result in improper paint adhesion. The carriers must be removed and cleaned at regular intervals. The cleaning procedures may involve cleaning the carriers or hooks in solvent. Such a manual cleaning process involves considerable expense, lengthy down time and is labor intensive.

In an attempt to overcome problems with manual cleaning of components of the paint line systems, at least one in-line cleaning system has been developed.

Presently available cleaning methods suffer from inherent problems relating to cost, operability and the like. For example, burn off furnaces inherently present safety and combustion product removal problems.
