Prepping & Painting an Operating Dust Removal System at a Metal Foundry

May 16, 2017

When a metal foundry discovered that the substrate on their dust-removal system and baghouse were rusting, management recognized the need for immediate action. However, they also knew that in view of their production commitments, they would be unable to accommodate any downtime. The challenge was finding a firm that was able to make the repairs prepare the substrate and apply the coating while the foundry was up and running. To meet this challenge, Capital Coating, Inc. designed a unique paint system that allowed us to do all of the necessary work on the substrate – while that substrate was at a constant 400°F. We did the project surveying, design/build, media and crushed-glass blasting, pressure washing, paint removal, and regular and high-reach painting while the metal foundry was operating at full capacity. We used our 60′ and 80′ lifts as well as our 200′ crane to reach the necessary heights, applying specialized heat-resistant, high-performance, and epoxy paints.

Capital Coating completed this demanding and highly-specialized paint project for our York, Pennsylvania client in four weeks. The metal foundry client appreciated both the end results and final bill and as result, this project was the beginning of what has become an ongoing relationship.
