A fluid bed allows powder paint to be suspended in air to approximately twice its normal volume inside the unit. By “fluidizing” the powder, quality and control of the paint application are greatly improved over trying to dip into stagnant powder. In other words, the powder paint will look and feel like water at a slight boil making it easier to dip heated workpieces into the paint and to allow a thinner, more even coat of paint. This will save time and money by using less paint per dip. Also with a thinner coat, there is less chance of drips forming during the final curing process. Jig eyes remain open and clear of paint.
