Coating Tank

The Coating Tank is a vessel for dipping clusters in coating. Vessel, mixer, heating system, and controls are specifically designed for the lost foam process. The system provides more accurate control of the coating process for repeatability.

  • Stainless steel interior vessel.
  • Stainless steel dished bottom with drain, valve and pipe for ease of draining and cleaning.
  • Water jacket with submersible heating elements.
  • Temperature control panel with heating element contractors and adjustable temperature control.
  • Stainless steel baffles to minimize vortexing and air entrapment.
  • Temperature and water level gauge mounted on side of tank.
  • Adjustable speed, gear driven, electric mixer with high efficiency stainless steel impeller designed for proper shear forces on thixotropic lost foam coatings.
  • Energy efficient electric motor specifically designed for mixer service.
  • High torque, quiet, single reduction gearbox.
  • Infinitely variable solid state speed control containing feedback monitoring circuits that accurately maintain motor speed at the rate set, despite changes in loading. Motor speed is accurately set by single adjusting dial. Speed can be preset or adjusted at any time, whether mixer is running or not.
