Food processing and bulk solids operations share many of the same objectives - maximizing runtime, high production and throughput, lower maintenance costs and long equipment lifetime. However, issues like part replacement, preventative maintenance and cleaning can hinder those goals.
To protect metal surfaces from damage, you have several methods to choose from. Many vendors provide surface enhancement offerings that range from plating to powders to paint-on processes, all of which can offer a fair amount of protection.
In our latest webinar, Mind Your Metal - Coating Conversations on Packaging, we examine some common issues in the packaging industry and explore the ways high-performance coatings can solve them to help you reduce downtime and increase productivity.
When two objects make contact with each other, there's going to be resistance, or friction, between the surfaces. Friction causes wear and affects the performance and operating life of components, so it’s important to minimize it.
No matter your industry, there will be times when you need to coat a part — whether to protect it from conditions in its target application, improve its performance, extend its lifetime or simply to enhance its aesthetics.
When it comes to contract manufacturing, relationships matter. Not only must you earn customer trust every day, you must also hope that the companies you partner with to help you serve your customers share your commitment to quality and service.
When it comes to protecting parts against corrosion and wear, electroless nickel (EN) plating has been around for a long time—in fact, more than two centuries.
Aerospace environments involve some of the toughest conditions for equipment. Threats like friction, galling, corrosion and high temperatures can cause some of the industry’s most common metals and alloys to fail.
In powder and bulk solids handling processes, many conditions can hinder equipment reliability and performance.
Sticky glues and adhesives as well as wear and abrasion are particularly common threats to machine reliability, and they can halt production as workers clean and repair the damage. Over time, these interruptions can significantly impact the bottom line.
In the powder bulk solids industry, precise metering and efficient material feeding are critical. However, several conditions can hinder machine performance and affect lifetime.
As oil and gas facilities move to more remote locations with extreme conditions, any equipment downtime due to parts failure can be costly.
Mining and mineral processing facilities present a host of threats that can affect valve reliability and uptime. Knife gate valves used in slurry transport, for example, must consistently perform despite heavy contact with abrasive, corrosive metal solids or acids that can erode the valve.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. General Magnaplate was part of the Apollo program's success from the beginning, both on the ground innovating surface coatings for space exploration and, later, on the moon protecting the drill tubes that sampled the moon's soil and rocks.
Fast-paced, high-volume production facilities cannot afford downtime caused by poorly performing packaging equipment.
When it comes to protecting metal and mixed metal components, harsh conditions and high performance requirements often prove too demanding for conventional coatings.
When it comes to food processing applications, the types of equipment that need protection are as varied as the threats they face. Whether you specify or upgrade molds, hoppers, pneumatic cylinders, extruders or guillotine blades, protecting that equipment is a top priority.
Selecting a coating to protect and enhance your metal part can be a difficult process. While there are many surface protection options to evaluate, electroless nickel boasts several benefits that make it desirable for certain requirements.
