European Coatings Conference

September 13-14, 2021

We are looking forward to attending the next European Coatings Conference in September. Find out more about our sustainable solutions for the production of coatings and inks.


Join the conference on September 13, 2021

Energy and cost-efficient production process for high-value coatings and inks for a sustainable future

In the wet grinding and dispersing process, the two biggest levers for energy reduction are the pre-dispersing and the fine grinding steps. For the pre-dispersing, many producers rely on high-speed dispersers. However, this technology consumes plenty of energy and is limited in its dispersing efficiency, hindering the fine grinding mill from using its full potential. Replacing the high-speed disperser with a low-speed agitator in combination with an advanced pre-dispersing unit improves the quality of the intermediate product immensely and cuts the energy costs by approximately 20%. Combined with the newest generation of high-power density bead mills, the overall mass specific energy [kWh/t] can be reduced by 50% at equally high product quality.

The presentation will be held by Frank Tabellion, Director Process Technology & Product Management.
