Along with their long-standing Dutch finishing partner, LTI Bv, Schuberts have just installed a custom built Schubox to dry and cure a long-standing bottleneck at Belned – drying waterbased coatings!
Once vacuum coated, the products are loaded onto large drying trolleys and pushed into the Schubox for rapid drying.
The Schubox is 6800mm wide x 2750mm high x 8000mm long and fitted with 5 x gas catalytic infrared emitters. The we fit infrared panels into Schubox is key to the quick drying at low temperatures. For this installation, the Schubox is running at just 35-38c and cures the waterbased coatings in 20-30 minutes.
Air is provided by means of inverter driven floor fans, that can be angled and accurately controlled to get the quickest drying times.
