Induction heating for coating and paint removal

Induction heating system for coating removal

The EFD Induction Coating Removal System is a state-of-the-art induction heating tool that rapidly strips paint and tough, high-build coatings.

Simple, clean, safe

  • Easy-to-use: The Coating Removal System arrives at the job site start-up ready. Just plug the unit into the site’s AC power supply, connect the cooling hoses and choose which coil you want to use. Once fitted, the clear, menu-based and multi- language control panel ensures maximum ease-of-use. Portable Coating Removal Systems are compact and light- weight. No need for long cable runs, because the heating converter is close to the working area.
  • Easy clean-up: Rather than being pulverized, the coating material mainly peels off in flakes and the debris is easy to gather and remove.
  • Safer working environment: Operator safety and convenience are key HSE advantages. Operator-friendly controls enhance safety. Hand-held heating inductors operate at low voltages and are water-cooled. The controlled, localized heat results in significantly reduced fumes and toxic dust.
  • Noiseless operation: Operators can work in public areas without creating a disturbance.
  • Reduced energy consumption: Fast, easy, accurate and repeatable heat delivery makes the coating removal process extremely energy-efficient.
  • Versatile: The EFD Induction coating removal system is the only system that can feature two independent operator units for simultaneous use in different areas. Inductors are available in a wide range of sizes and geometries to optimize coating removal via freehand, semi-automatic and scanning operation. Interchangeability assures on-site versatility for stripping at surfaces, round contours, inside/outside corners, both sides of substrate and round rivets, among other tasks.
  • Low maintenance: The coating removal systems and components are built to sustain rugged worksite conditions and ambient temperature extremes. The solid-state power supply is designed to operate for at least 20 years, running continuously at 100% duty cycle.
  • Custom-built systems: EFD Induction is the only company that custom-builds coating removal systems for unusual or complex projects. Our decades of experience in project-specific induction heating engineering and coating-removal applications assure turnkey delivery of high-performance systems to customers worldwide.
  • i-Scan system: Close control is desirable for a number of reasons. Due to the nature of many coating removal projects it is common that the coil is moved manually. Therefore, we need to take into account the difference in travel speed and potential increases in coating thickness. The coating removal system is capable of detecting and reacting to certain condition changes. When coupled with the unique i-Scan system, it can not only detect speed change but also variations in the coating thickness and adjust the parameters accordingly to cope with those changes immediately. The i-Scan display continually guides the operator using easy-to-understand graphics to maintain efficient removal throughout the process.
