Important in painting applications: good flushability (Aug 2013)

19 August, 2013

The Waiblingen-based company Eisele Pneumatics GmbH & Co. KG markets its stainless steel connections under the name INOXLine. The line includes dead zone-free connections for media circuits where no residue can be tolerated in the pipe system. Especially for the transport and processing of paints, Eisele developed the plug-and-turn connectors of the 1600 series, which have successfully been used in industrial applications for ten years already.

Maintenance-friendly and flexible alternative
Originally developed as an exclusive customer solution for one of the market leaders, the advanced high-quality connections of the 1600 series are now available to the entire painting industry for the first time. Their design allows safe and reliable internal cleaning of the lines by flushing before changing media. They are manufactured from stainless steel 1.4301/07 and the collet for secure holding of the hose is made of (chemically nickel-plated) brass. As a plug-and-turn fitting with a hose they are said to offer a maintenance-friendly and flexible alternative to classic pipework and are just as easy to clean.
Although there are no special hygiene requirements in painting applications, paints are intended to adhere to surfaces and flow evenly into every crack in order to form a permanent surface seal. In corners, edges and dead angles of conventional hose and pipe systems, these properties would quickly cause problems and breakdowns by preventing low-friction flow. When the colour is changed, the lines have to be flushed, which requires easy and extremely thorough cleaning of the media circuit. Absolute purity is important for paints, since even minimal mixing can corrupt the colour hues and cause inhomogeneity. Due to the dead zone-free design of the 1600 series it is not necessary to disassemble systems for cleaning. The well-constructed high-quality stainless steel connections are also a good choice from the point of view of economy and ecology, due to minimised product loss, longer component life and the fact that they are fully recyclable. The required cleaning before switching products or breaks in operation is faster and uses less cleaner or solvent; mixed phases, which are of limited use due to their inferior quality, are also reduced.
