Coating a Wide Range of Products
KMI installs powder booths in environmental rooms to ensure trouble free powder application and dirt free parts. KMI’s rooms are designed with automatic climate control systems which maintain an environment at optimal coating conditions. KMI’s standard powder room utilizes two patents, making our rooms vastly superior to competitor’s rooms.
PATENTED Isolation Tunnels: (Pat No. US #5,849,053)
Tri-Flow Energy Recovery Isolation Tunnels reduce the air conditioning load. The powder coating industry experts recommend an air flow of no less than 120 feet per minute through the conveyor openings to keep in-plant contamination out of the environmental room. KMI uses a patented method of saving this wasted air conditioning by recirculating it back to the air conditioning system via the Tri-Flow Energy Recovery Isolation Tunnels placed at the conveyor entrance and exit openings.
PATENTED Plenum Design: (Pat No. US #5,885,154)
Another unique feature of the KMI environmental room is the implementation of the “Kleen-Wall Plenum” system. The environmental system is directly fed to the overhead plenum (eliminating a costly duct and diffuser system) where the conditioned air is evenly distributed throughout the entire room.
Environmental Room and Powder Conditioning
The powder room houses powder spray booths. Ambient air in the room is maintained at constant and uniform conditions (temperature and humidity) throughout the day and throughout all areas of the room all year long. This provides ideal powder paint or enamel application conditions. Environmental rooms are constructed from modular insulated panels, and all internal surfaces are reasonably smooth for easy cleaning.
