In today’s challenging environments there is one constant and that is change. Modern organisations need to find a better way to do things with the commitment to improvement starting at the top. There is no doubt that looking at things from a new perspective brings about great change and that’s just what Oxifree have been doing with their new and improved Polymelt 50 machine.
Providers of anti-corrosion and contamination solutions, Oxifree Metal Protection offers TM198 – a thermoplastic coating for the protection of metal assets. Application of TM198 is fast and simple by their range of applicator machines of which the Polymelt 50 is a real workhorse.
“As part of our commitment to continuous product development, the PM50 has undergone quite the transformation to bring new benefits to our customers”, says Ed Hall, Managing Director. “The Polymelt 50 is our larger machine for the application of Oxifree TM198. It has a tank capacity of 22 kg/50 lb and comes with a 15m/50ft hose”.
To create the new machine Oxifree took feedback from their own projects, feedback from customers, reviewed the environments the machines operate in and looked at the demands in the market.
The new PM50 highlights include a 45% reduction in overall size making it easier to transport and manoeuvre on work site, a new contemporary design, soft wheels for improved impact/shock resistance and new machine usage and pump usage hour meters to aid maintenance planning. New machines began shipping at the start of the year and feedback so far has been very positive.
Oxifree TM198 is an innovative thermoplastic coating proven to increase the lifetime of metal components by as much as 1000%, and provide significant savings to the cost of maintenance.
Oxifree coating can be applied to live equipment without the need for costly shut downs. It provides protection immediately as it cools and solidifies within seconds on impact, even in the most extreme of environments.
