Powder Coat Pp

  1. 1. Case Study: Installation of New Powder Coat Paint Line Everbrite, LLC Pardeeville,WI By Derek Gates
  2. 2. Everbrite, LLC  A leading producer in indoor/outdoor electronic and neon advertising signs, menu boards, and scoreboards, etc.  Customers include McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Mobil gas station, DLK, and many more  Founded in 1927 in Milwaukee  Grown to about 1,200 employees in 11 different locations (5 in WI)
  3. 3. Project Description  Project focus: paint line process in the sheet metal section of the facility  Concerns  Quality of paint job  Environmental emissions  Employee exposure to chemicals/fumes
  4. 4. Current Sheet Metal Paint Process  Parts are prepared (manually sanded and wiped down) to help paint adhere to surface better  Parts are hung on a conveyor system  Parts go into paint booth via conveyor and are painted  Go into curing oven to bake and dry
  5. 5. Problem ID: Current Paint Process  Open-Ended Wet Spray Paint Booth  System was grandfathered in; old equipment, ventilation, etc.  Leads to inadequate paint jobs and poor air purity  Many parts are “defective”- need to be re- prepped and re-painted  Employees handle and are exposed to amounts of solvents, paint thinners, etc. which are hazardous  Majority of Haz. Waste of facility produced here
  6. 6. Picture of Spray Booth
  7. 7. Problem ID: Current Process (Production)  Shipping  Some parts need to be powder coated, so they are shipped out; leads to issues with quality and hinders productivity  Lost time on labor-handling, inspecting, and inventory on shipped parts  WIP Materials
  8. 8. Solution  Implement a new powder coating paint line  Will greatly reduce environmental safety concerns  Will increase quality of product, productivity, and lead to more business
  9. 9. Solution: Proposed New Powder Paint Line  Preparation-5-Stage Wash system  Parts treated with chemicals to enhance ability of paint to adhere to surface  Powder Paint Booth  Bake Oven  Parts moved via conveyor system
  10. 10. What is Powder Coating?  Applying dry paint to a surface  Paint powder is applied to the surface and put in an oven to bake  Results in a durable, even-coated finish  Preparation and baking are key to a good finish
  11. 11. Advantages of Powder Coating  Releases little to no VOCs and HAPs into environment (solvents, thinners)  Reduces employee exposure to these harmful chemicals  Reduces burden of EPA compliance for facilities  Overspray of powder is easily recyclable  Better paint quality  No drips, runs, or other imperfections  Reduces defected parts; less preparation time  Durable, Non-Corrosive Finish
  12. 12. Problem Solution: Air Emission Permit  Obtain a new air emission permit  Everbrite is currently under a Part 70 permit  Requires extensive reporting and not many advantages  Everbrite should obtain a Registration Operating Permit (ROP)
  13. 13. ROP Permit  Allows facilities to change processes/do construction without obtaining other expensive construction permits  Saves time and money  Must stay within limits of ROP during construction  Less extensive and less frequent reporting and recordkeeping than Part 70  Easy application process; short waiting time  Don’t need to hire consultant to handle permit  Costs less than Part 70  Doesn’t Expire
  14. 14. Emission Citations  Under Part 70- Automatically considered a High Priority Violation (HPV)  Forwarded to the EPA  Possibly referred to the Department of Justice
  15. 15. Emission Citations  Under ROP- not automatically HPV  Facility is sent a Letter of Notification (LON)  Facility replies on how to make sure the violation doesn’t re-occur  Follow up visit *Depends on violation for both Part 70 and ROP  ROP most likely less serious than Part 70
  16. 16. Expected Results/Benefits  VOC/HAP emissions will decrease  Less employee exposure  Less Hazardous waste produced  Less recording/reporting to EPA  Not as much administrative burden to keep records
  17. 17. Benefits  Reduction in:  Shipping costs  Labor Costs  Paint/Chemical Costs  Better employee morale due to working with new equipment  Better quality of product
