This Oilfield Tubing Coater was designed and built to replace traditional coating machines. This apparatus is used to coat the inside of the oilfield tubing with special paints and/or coatings.
The traditional style machines are slow, outdated drive systems, heavy, and bulky.
Faztek worked with their customer to design and build a new style Oilfield Tubing Coater. With Faztek’s Free Design Assistance, we took sketches from their customer to create a working package to build from. Strong 1.5” x 3” T-Slotted aluminum extrusion profiles accounted for the majority of the standard automation package offered below, along with joining plates to hold it together securely. Heavy-duty floor mount base plates with height adjustment for uneven floors were used to provide a secure seat and could also be fastened to the floor if required.
After installation and a quick test run, it was apparent the design of this machine base provided a perfect platform for the Oilfield Tubing Coater. The biggest improvement over old style coating systems was the updated linear drive system. It provided more smooth and accurate painting and/or coating. This new system outperformed the old style and has a 50% faster cycle time. The other biggest improvement is from the frame itself with no welding and 1/3 the weight of the previous track system. Strong, sturdy, modular and cost-effective, these units will provide years of low maintenance performance. Best of all, Faztek’s framing system is completely modular, allowing for future modifications.
