Paint & Solvents Equipment
The paint and solvents industry is heavily regulated and increasingly technical, with a demand for more sustainable products, low solvent, and solvent-less technologies. There is a similar drive towards environmental regulation in the manufacturing of solvents, adhesives, and glues. Manufacturing processes for all these products continue to evolve due to advances in coatings and technologies, and to meet changing demands of the market for paint, solvents, adhesives, and glues.
Carotek provides pumps for specialized processes for making paint, solvents, adhesives, inks and glues.
Paint & Coatings Pumps
Pumps provide an important function in the manufacture of paint, solvents, adhesives, and glues. The right pump is essential when transferring components from one phase to another, separating waste products, or mixing.
- Viking Pump products are suitable for many phases of the paints, resins, and coatings process. Universal pumps are ideal for general transfer, reactor feed and discharge, ball mill discharge, and colorant metering. Industrial lobe pumps work best for shear-sensitive latex applications. Viking Pumps supplies other models that work well for solvents.
- Sandpiper offers air operated double diaphragm pumps that are used for bulk transfer, day tank transfer, batching, pigment milling, paint filtration, mixing tanks, filling machines, and more.
