Finishing and Cleaning Equipment manufacturers the highest quality phosphate systems designed for efficiency, longevity, and production. We strive to use industry leading components in our systems that withstand the hot corrosive nature of the process chemistry. Any of the following configurations can be used for iron, zinc, or manganese phosphate chemistry.
Finishing and Cleaning Equipment provides a custom selection of electrically heated phosphate tanks. Electric models offer several advantages in that they are inexpensive, are easy to troubleshoot, and don't require fuel lines or exhaust ducting. Programmable 24/7 timers can be added for pre-dawn heat up. All electric units are available in 575/480/380/240V, 3/1 Ph, and 60/50 Hz.
Compact, inexpensive, and a great introductory design to operations looking to expand their added value services. The PHOS SSED is also ideal for shops planning to expand with its modular format. A variety of sizes are available; from 2x2x2/60 gl up to 6x6x6/1620 gl.
Shops that plan to use their phosphate system every day might consider a jacketed heating system, also known as a double boiler design. The heating elements are submersed in a thermal fluid which in turn heats the phosphate solution through a process liner. This design spreads out the kW value over a larger surface area which leads to more manageable sludge growth with less frequent maintenance. Thermal circulation pumps are also added to ensure an even heat across the thermal void. By keeping the thermal media moving across the heater element, the tank will heat up faster and prolong the life of the heater as well as the thermal fluid.
We also manufacture a complete line of gas fueled phosphate tanks. These tanks are heated by forced air self modulating combustion units that range from 300,000 BTU/ hr to over 3,000,000 BTU/ hr. Natural gas, propane, or butane can be used and most systems are convertible. Gas fueled systems can be configured for direct or jacketed heat. NFPA approved gas train components are standard equipment.
