Torrent is a revolutionary, patent-pending powder coating system that offers impressive automated capabilities in a modest footprint. Torrent is smaller and less costly than tradition powder coating systems, and yet offers greater capacity and flexibility.
Torrent’s programmable timing and rotating carousel cut floor space requirements nearly in half versus similar conventional monorail powder coat systems. Our Maxi System can handle parts that fit into a 7' high, 9'6" diameter cylinder within a 4,900 sq. ft. area. The smaller system also requires less material and labor for installation, saving 40% to as much as 50% versus a conventional powder coat installation.
While a linear monorail system moves parts through all stages at a set rate, with a Torrent powder coating system you can customize each stage to ensure thorough cleaning, rinsing and draining regardless of part complexity and size. Less thorough manual pretreatment of parts can often be completely eliminated.
Torrent bathes parts with multiple spray heads from all sides while rotating on the carousel, ensuring better coverage, better impingement and ultimately, a better quality coating.
Within the pretreatment module, each of the five process fluids utilize a completely separate pump, header and riser. An indexing floor drain recycles fluids to the correct tank, eliminating cross contamination and greatly reducing material usage cost.
No need for expensive outsourcing to large dip-tank facilities. Torrent’s heavy-duty track and hangers are capable of handling up to 4,000 pounds per carousel. Heavy parts that would traditionally require manual pretreatment can receive the full benefits of the five-stage automated process before powder coating.
The versatile hanger can handle everything from single, oversized pieces to dozens of smaller parts. Replaceable, easy to clean grounding clips maintain a good contact for better powder coverage.
The rotating carousel in combination with six air directing injection points provide better powder coat coverage. The booth can be configured with replaceable color modules to recycle powder or shoot to waste.
Thanks to programmable timing cycles, a dramatically smaller cure oven can be utilized requiring much less energy. With custom timed pretreatment cycles, no heated fluids are wasted. From beginning to end, the Torrent powder coating system is engineered to save on materials, energy and cost.
