Paints & Lacquers

Pumps and pigging

In order to minimize the installation of lines for different paints and product groups in the paint and emulsion paint industry, KIESEL has developed fittings, pumps and systems with minimal dead space. Our two-pig systems guarantee extreme color changes. The pigs are “flushed” in the sending and receiving stations. To avoid curing, liquid propellants and intermediate spans are mostly used.

For direct and effective metering of raw materials and semi-finished products (accurate to 1 g), a metering piston valve is inserted into the pig line to obtain exactly the desired finished color shade (automotive industry) at the end of the line in the mixer/isolator.
