The Satellite Concept


The Satellite Concept is a unique coating line designed to work with a Continuous Galvanising Line. All Bronx Colour Coating lines can be configured for Satellite operation. The Satellite Concept reduces the line equipment required on a colour coating line by removing the cleaning and pretreatment sections. The pretreatment function is carried out at the exit end of a galvanising line, prior to the coil entering the Satellite Colour Coating Line.

Bronx can modify the galvanising line to offer suitably pretreated material for subsequent colour coating on a Satellite line. This modification involves adding a chemical coater and dryer to the exit section of the galvanising line. Many coater and dryer options exist to accommodate your line layout. These include horizontal, vertical (space saving), quick change (for multiple coatings) with S Wrap, C Wrap and U Wrap available. Drying of the coating can be by gas, electric (IR or Induction) and UV.

Bronx International has applied this concept on lines in Nigeria, Turkey, Russia, Singapore, Australia and Kenya, in small stop-start line configuration through to larger continuous lines at 60mpm (197ft/min).
