overhead conveyot for propane tank refurbishing line

Overhead Monorails for Order Fulfillment in Warehouses and Distributions Centers

Propane and Cylinder Tank Conveyors

Pacline specializes in providing overhead conveyor systems for gas cylinder finishing and propane tank refurbishing systems. Overhead conveyors are the best choice for handling tanks through the finishing process. Over-spray and excess wet paint falls downwards, therefore, having the moving conveyor located above the tanks, in an enclosed track, prevents much of the over-spray and paint run-off from reaching and adversely affecting the conveyor system.

Pacline conveyors can efficiently handle small and large gas cylinders through the various finishing stages such as inspecting, sandblasting, painting and drying. Pacline offers several different types of conveyors depending on the system requirements and tank weight. Paint operations may involve spray booths with automatic spray guns or robotics for precision spray painting which our overhead conveyors can easily be integrated with. Pacline has a network of finishing systems integrators that we work closely with and are therefore able to provide full turnkey systems.

Benefits of Overhead Conveyors for Tank Refurbishing

• Automate the finishing process and reduce labor
• Minimize the lifting of propane tanks and cylinders by workers.
• Reduce the drying time of the tanks and cylinders between paint applications.
• Rotating carriers can easily rotate the tanks/cylinders while painting.
• Avoid paint run-off during transportation from the paint booth to the drying area.

A customer required an automated solution to replace an existing manual paint system. The powered conveyor system allowed the propane tank cleaning and painting processes to be fully integrated. The Pacline solution increased productivity by automating their process for painting gas cylinders. What used to take 8 hours now can be done in under 30 minutes. Read the full case study here.
