PPG recently announced the launch of an expanded portfolio of coating systems for wastewater facilities. The portfolio includes a combination of the company’s Raven and Aquataflex coating systems for underwater concrete and various coatings for exterior and interior steel.

“PPG is excited to offer a much broader range of coatings solutions for wastewater infrastructure customers thanks to our recent acquisition of VERSAFLEX and its Raven Lining Systems, which are used throughout the water, wastewater and manhole rehabilitation industries,” said Juanjo Ardid, PPG Vice President, Protective and Marine Coatings, U.S. and Canada.

“Wastewater plant operators, engineers and contractors can benefit from having a single resource for proven coatings products backed by the extensive technical support, applications expertise, specification tools and distribution network of PPG.”

The coatings portfolio includes solutions for wastewater management processes, such as collections, primary and secondary treatment, sludge handling and disinfection:  

  • PPG Raven 405 high-build epoxy coating: Provides heavy-duty protection and broad chemical resistance, especially to hydrogen sulphide (H2S) gases, for challenging concrete immersion applications like wet wells, digesters and manholes;
  • PPG AquataFlextri-hybrid series: Combines the chemical resistance of epoxy, the flexibility of polyurethane and fast cure of a polyurea for concrete substrates that are subject to structural movement or that require a quick return to service such as filter basins, clarifiers and tanks;
  • PPG Raven755 cementitious resurfacer: Rehabilitates deteriorated concrete as a first coat in a system with PPG Raven 405 or PPG AquataFlex series coatings for manholes, wet wells, filter basins and headworks;
  • PPG SIGMASHIELD series: Provides high abrasion and impact resistance for steel-immersion applications due to its ultra-high film build with broad application thicknesses;
  • PPG NOVAGUARD 890 novolac epoxy lining: Offers excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and solvents, including H2S, for direct-to-metal applications; and
  • PPG AMERCOAT interior and PPG AMERLOCK exterior epoxy coatings: Provide versatile, surface-tolerant coatings for atmospheric steel applications in tanks and basins.

According to the press release, the coatings solutions are corrosion resistant and provide long-lasting performance. PPG provides a technical service team that assists with project design and product specification.

Carlisle Fluid Technologies’ DeVilbiss TEKNA spray gun was recently featured on an episode of Detroit Muscle on Power Nation TV to bring a 1973 AMC Javelin back to life. Featuring a high finish quality and operator ergonomics, The TEKNA gun’s high transfer efficiency provides materials savings for solvent or waterbase paints.

The spray gun technology, which has been used in automotive refinishing processes for many years, is designed to spray all types of materials and comes with high efficiency or HVLP air caps that produce large spray patterns with even material distribution.

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart.
