Luvata ElectroFin – heat transfer coatings
ElectroFin® E-Coat – OEM factory-applied solution
ElectroFin® E-Coat is a factory-applied electro-deposition coating process that guarantees complete heat exchanger coverage. The coil is fully immersed in a bath, where it acts as a magnet, attracting the coating to every surface. All e-coating which is not deposited on the heat exchanger
is collected and re-used, minimizing both wastage and the impact on the environment. The result is a thin, flexible, durable, corrosion-resistant
coating, giving the very best in corrosion protection.
ElectroFin® E-Coat was designed to provide corrosion resistance for both fin and tube, and micro-channel heat exchangers in coastal marine environments. It can cope with the harshest conditions and is recognized by the HVAC&R industry as the leading technology in corrosion-resistance coatings. It is proven to significantly extend the life of HVAC equipment and is the preferred choice for every major OEM. There is no better solution to ensure a full and uniform coating.
Coatings to protect your investment
In recent years, the air conditioning industry has been striving to improve energy efficiencies and reduce hydrocarbons. Galvanic corrosion, formicary corrosion and standard aluminium oxidation can all cause an unprotected heat exchanger to deteriorate more quickly. ElectroFin® E-Coat increases the efficiency and length of service of HVAC&R systems, while reducing maintenance, replacement and operating costs. All Luvata coil coatings are water-based, which makes them kinder to the environment. ElectroFin® E-Coat meets that challenge head on to extend useful service life.
Insitu – After-market spray-applied solution
Electro-coating is not always a practical solution. A combination of time, distance and cost can mean that a field-based spray-applied coating is a more logical choice. Insitu® is a post-manufacturing coil and cabinet coating application designed with ES2 (Embedded Stainless Steel pigments) technology to improve resistance to moisture, corrosion and UV degradation.
The Insitu application process is performed by Luvata-certified technicians at any one of our spray hubs, or it can be applied on-site at your
premises. Using spray-applied technology allows you to specify the protective coating you want for all unitary equipment and its internal
components, in addition to the heat transfer coils. Insitu coil and cabinet coating provides the best protection you can get without electro-coating.
Insitu certified licensee training
The course provides the same five day intensive training received by all Luvata certified applicators. It takes place in our Spray Technology Center in Pompano Beach, Florida and includes extensive classroom and hands-on training in the techniques of surface preparation, cleaning, mixing, spraying, product storage, quality control, safety and equipment maintenance.
It’s all from Luvata, where our customers have relied on us for improved operational efficiency and innovative products for over one hundred years.
