Roto Lining Of HDPE / PP / PVDF / HALAR / ETFE / PFA

It is a computer controlled lining technology using rotational movement of equipment along with sintering process. This process creates seamless lining with virtually uniform lining thickness from 500 microns to 6mm Roto lining of HDPE, PP, PVDF, HALAR , ETFE , FEP, PFA is available in natural, FDA or Antistatic Conductive fnish.

Lining of equipment that contains chemicals that diffuse through fluoropolymers is a growing application for this lining technique due to benefit of the increased liner thickness.

Typical ideal applications for ROTO LINING include: Centrifuges, Column sections, Vessels, Filter housings, Dryers, Reactors, Mixers, GLR Spares, Heat Exchangers, Pipes & Fittings, Pumps, Blowers, High purity linings for semconductor applications, IBC Containers and other chemical transport containers.

Advantages of Roto Lining

  1. Better Chemical Resistance as natural Polymer is used and is heated one time, not like repeated heating in Coating so better properties of polymer
  2. Better bonding of lining to equipment because of centrifugal action of rotating movement & better life as direct bonding to equipment without adhesive.
  3. Any thickness of lining is possible from 500 microns to 6mm in single heating.
  4. FAST Delivery as quick completion of lining.
  5. Mono block type tanks & Receivers without main body ange can be lined.
  6. Seamless construction without any weld joints.
  7. Suitable for full vacuum.
  8. Suitable for heat transfer application.
  9. Antistatic , conductive , FDA Lining available.
  10. Minor repair / touch up possible at site.

Roto Lining Technique

  1. Preparation of the object to be lined

  2. Inspection of the parts to be lined

    The parts to be processed are checked before being lined according to the construction guidelines DIN EN 14879-1. The radiuses have to be properly rounded off and welding seams have to be cleanly ground. No welding beads are allowed to remain.

  3. Thermal degreasing

    Before the lining process, greasy or oily residues have to be removed, as these can influence the adhesion of the lining onto the carrier material.

  4. Preparation of the object and roughing up the surface

    In order to achieve adhesion, the parts are first sandblasted with highly purified aluminium oxide.

  5. Rotational sinter lining

    The components are fixed into a clamping device and filled with the appropriate material. The lining temperature and rotational speed are individually set.

  6. Finishing

    Mechanical processing of the sealed surface.

  7. Inspection and quality control

    The components are inspected visually for appearance, layer thickness, pore impermeability and, if necessary, electrical conductivity, and an inspection certificate 3.1 according to DIN EN 10204 is issued. All test procedures are documented.

  8. Packaging and shipment
