Development of a resource-efficient water management and plant concept for pretreatment and dip-painting plants using electro-pulse technology for the decontamination of industrial water and paints.
The core of the concept is a decontamination process based on electro-pulse technology. For the first time, this process will be applied to paints and waters in the dip-painting process. The aim is to prevent microbial contamination of the various process fluids. Novel, semiconductor-switched pulse generators are being developed and used for the pulse technology. Based on fundamental findings from the first project phase, an industrial demonstration plant is being set up and tested at paint manufacturers. A concept for innovative water management for dip coating with reduced operating costs and improved circulation is being developed. INEC's task is the structured recording and coordination of requirements for the process, taking into account the aspects of market - user - technology - environment. In an integrated sustainability analysis, economic and ecological guard rails are developed and optimisation proposals are shown on the basis of energy and material flow models.
