How to Improve Paints and Coatings Processing Operations

Streamline Paints and Coatings Production with HPS Technology

Here are some of the ways pigging and liquid transfer technologies such as the HPS Automatrix and HPS Rotomatrix can help paints and coatings manufacturers improve their processing operations and boost their bottom line. HPS technology:

Reduces Waste and Disposal Costs During Product Changeovers

HPS product recovery (‘pigging’) systems recover the majority of product remaining in the pipeline at the end of the transfer process. This increases yields, reduces product waste and lowers the amount of cleaning chemicals, water and time required for the cleaning process. And because pigging reduces the downtime associated with cleaning and changeovers, this increases plant capacity.

Minimizes Cross-Contamination Risks

Because the HPS hygienic (sanitary) pig removes practically all the product from the pipeline, the risks of cross-contamination are reduced.

Reduce the Risks of Paints and Coatings Spoiling

HPS pigging systems are fully hygienic (sanitary) and are in wide use in many hygienic production environments. Because the HPS pig efficiently cleans the pipeline and recovers product, this helps prevent the build-up of paint residue on the internal wall of the pipeline. This reduces the risks of bacterial contamination and minimizes the chances of paints and coatings spoiling.

Reduces the Chances of Transfer Errors

The HPS Rotomatrix liquid transfer solution enables manufacturers to quickly and reliably connect pipelines from multiple sources to multiple destinations. Because the Rotomatrix has rotating arms to connect different sources to different destinations as well as mechanical couplings, software interlocking, and path selection feedback, operators can no longer make bad transfers.

Improves Safety, Reduces the Chances of Accidents and “Snake Pits”

HPS Automatrix technology provides a fully automated, efficient, tidy and safe working environment while allowing for future reconfiguration and expansion. The HPS piggable Automatrix is a fully automatic piggable valve manifold. Because it automates source and destination selection, it not only makes changeovers extremely quick, it also means there’s less chance of connection errors. And because the Automatrix almost cuts out manual selection procedures, there’s minimal opportunity for human error.

What’s more, the design of the Automatrix reduces the amount of pipeline required, which frees up space and helps get rid of hoses. This ensures maximum safety and lowers the risks of accidents. It’s also fully piggable, which increases yields, reduces waste, speeds up changeovers times and lowers contamination risks.
