TAKING DISPERSIONS IN-HOUSE: THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
Although it might look financially positive to take your color dispersion process in-house, make sure you see all the angles before making the leap.
FLOW METER AND MILLS
Controlling material flow by mass is not a new concept, but application to our industries is recent. Learn how these highly accurate meters work and how to apply them in your production environment.
MORE ON POWER
The amount of power that a piece of equipment can sink to the premix gives a good measure as to its effectiveness. Here is a test setup to determine comparative energy input in dispersers.
A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO MEDIA SELECTION
Choosing a single type of media over another can be as taxing as a trip down the tuna-fish aisle in the supermarket. You know all the tuna’s the same...why so many different brands? There are differences. Learn how to determine them for your application here.
WATERBORNE DEVELOPMENTS AND THEIR EFFECTS ON PROCESSING
Waterborne coatings, for all their advancements, are still very different animals from the solvent-borne coatings they replace. Find out how, why, and how to cope here.
Research and development on water borne coatings began in the early 1950's, with the widespread adoption of latex emulsion based architectural coatings. Now, forty years later, the finishes have expanded in scope to include true solution coatings for use in the automotive industry, with finish quality that rivals and sometime exceeds the solvent-borne coatings that they are about to replace on a wholesale basis.
ROTORS AND STATORS
Looking at previous milling methods, it is obvious that the future holds newer ideas. Though the Rotor & Stator design works well for a "shearing" method, a new "pressure" method might be in store.
