Retractable Paint Booths Offer Versatility

Chamtech Systems' retractable paint booths and sandblast enclosures are designed to provide a clean, safe and versatile work area for painting large, hard-to-maneuver work pieces.

Chamtech Systems' retractable paint booths and sandblast enclosures are designed to provide a clean, safe and versatile work area for painting large, hard-to-maneuver work pieces.

The booths are made of a translucent, fire-retardant shell mounted to a lightweight rolling aluminum structure, and retract to a fraction of their extended lengths. The front door is designed for incoming air flow filtration requirements, and the rear door is custom fitted to any filtration system. The translucent material allows exterior lighting to shine in, eliminating the need for specialized explosion-proof lighting. Additional options include several front door configurations, side skirts to reduce dust infiltration and factory preassembly.

Can Electroplated Fe-C be an Environmentally Friendly Alternative to Hard Chromium and DLC Coatings?

Electroplated FeC is an efficient surface treatment based on non-aggressive chemicals with a deposition rate of ~20 μm/h at a process temperature of 50°C.  The FeC coating is carbide-free and temperature stable up to ~250°C with a hardness of 750 HV, which is comparable to frequently applied hardened steels.  The FeC coating has reasonable friction properties and have high affinity towards lubricants because of incorporated amorphous carbon.  Hence, for certain applications, the FeC coating might be an interesting wear-protective alternative to hard chromium and to PVD-deposited low-friction diamond-like carbon coatings (DLC’s), which are rather difficult and costly to deposit on larger items.
