Cyprus-based aluminium manufacturer Muskita has installed a Fastrip ISP machine to treat its profile hanging hooks.
Muskita, manufacturer of aluminium profiles and accessories, has invested in an accessory phase of the coating process, greatly affecting productivity, energy efficiency, and operational safety: it has installed
a paint stripping system to treat its profile hanging hooks, choosing the technological evolution of the Fastrip ISP machine produced by ALIT Technologies.
The system will help increase the speed of its coating line and it will enable the company to significantly reduce energy consumption and process costs. This is crucial for a company like Muskita, bearing much higher costs for energy supply than in the rest of Europe.
The Fastrip ISP system installed at Muskita’s premises is a 6-metre long chemical stripping tank, with
a capacity of 2 tonnes of product and with a hook immersion depth of 30 cm. It is the first tank of this type to have a wall heating system with diathermic oil.
The tank can be completed with a water rinse module to remove the residual paint stripping oil and with an
infrared lamp module for drying. The active paint stripping solution should never be changed, because the system is designed to be in balance: two products are used, one for the tank and one for feeding.
Management is simple: the sludge is filtered by a filter press that produces a dry residue to be disposed of.
