Description of enameling process
shot blaster for large solar boilers The boilers are loaded onto a conveyor near the testing station after the welding department and transported to the shot blaster.

They remain stationary in front of the sliding doors until this machine is ready for operation.

The doors will open automatically at the end of each cycle and the boilers will move to the blasting positions where they are clamped into a centering device.

During the first stage the boilers will be centered and rotated, while a rigid multi nozzle lance enters the product to blast the interior.

Remaining shot medium will be washed away by means of compressed air during the next stage.

At the end of this cycle boilers will be moved to the automatic powder application system, which also comprises of two stages.

At the first stage the boilers will be centered while the interior is sprayed with powder enamel by means of extended automatic guns mounted on a PLC controlled reciprocator.

At the second stage above described operation will be repeated in order to obtain the required enamel layer thickness.

An automatic transfer unit picks the boilers one-by-one from the pretreatment / application conveyor and places them carefully on the furnace conveyor.
