Tablet Film Coating

Tablet Film Coating

Solid dosage forms, such as tablets, have a polymer film coating applied to achieve desired characteristics that otherwise cannot be retained in an uncoated product. They are typically non porous and dense, between 20 and 100 micron thick; some spanning up to 200 micron. Coatings are produced with different functions in mind. A conventional coating […]

Printing

Printing

Printing processes that utilise plates to produce final prints can sometimes struggle with the consistency of quality when doing multiple runs, costing more effort and money to reprint and reputation when product is not up to scratch. It is also common for these operations to be stunted due to contaminants within the paint, and the […]

Paint Spraying

Paint Spraying

Paint that is applied via a spray gun or spray cans needs to be treated further than the average tin of paint. This is due to the high pressures and thin nozzles that are used within paint spraying booths, from large scale vehicle spraying to designers and even hobbyists. If this paint is not rid […]

Paint Filtration

Paint Filtration

During paint manufacture, product can congeal and form lumps within batch. These formations drastically reduce the quality of the paint when applied to an object walls and can even damage equipment. For example, trying to pull coagulated paint through a spray gun will cause it to block and possibly burst the pressure system. To filter […]

Ink Filtration

Ink Filtration

Before being filled into cartridges, ink must be combed of particulates above a certain micron size, depending on application. Printer cartridge ink must be treated to remove all particles above 10 micron. Particles above this size have been known to block the dispersion nozzles within the printer, causing a lack of quality on print and […]

Recirculation Loops

Recirculation Loops

Plating baths are commonly installed with loops of pipework to recirculate water that has been previously used. Recirculation loops increase energy efficiency as pure water does not have to be made for every fill of top up the bath experiences, cutting down costs and decreasing production down time. However, during this cycle, water can become […]

Pure Water Production

Pure Water Production

The finishing sector utilises pure water at various stages during manufacture including final product rinses, diluting chemicals and mainly, filling plating baths. Plated products must not be produced with a finish quality that is below spot and streak free, meaning each stage of production requires purified water. The lack of contaminants within treated water will […]

Cooling Loops

Cooling Loops

Cooled water within power stations is applied to reduce the temperature of various systems that produce heat as waste, and others that warm due to the contact with steam. Water also needs to be of mild temperature before it is released back into the water source. Due to the cycling of water throughout the plant, […]

Generator Protection

Generator Protection

Condensate returned from steam powered turbine systems will need to be pre treated before returning to the generator again. This is due to the concentration of particles the water will obtain throughout the system whilst it is being transformed back from steam. Frequent chemical checks are also carried out at different stages of the system […]

Pure Steam Production

Pure Steam Production

Producing clean steam within industrial environments contributes to both the generation of electricity and supplementing site heating. Steam generators will direct their product into two channels, one will be transported to the turbines; spinning them to produce power for the plant. Whereas the other channel will lead directly into the heating system, contributing to the […]
