For nearly 60 years Halifax Fan has been designing, manufacturing and servicing its own range of industrial fans. Today with factories in UK, China and the USA, Halifax Fan can offer this across the globe.
From simple combustion fans to complex high temperature hazardous gas handling applications – whatever the application and wherever in the world chances are they have done it before.
Industrial fans need to cope with extreme levels of humidity, temperature and corrosive environments. To do this Halifax apply high performance protective coatings. Using the latest high performance protective coatings requires specific coating film thicknesses at the application stage. Halifax Fan’s spray equipment operators attend training courses as part of their continual professional development. John Elliott, General Manager at Halifax Fan, contacted Mick Warren from Spraytrain to provide the training.
Spraytrain are independent training providers for the spray equipment operator. The courses provided for Halifax Fan included airspray and air assisted airless spray applications, tailored to suit the application equipment and coatings at Halifax Fan. The courses were part theory with electronic assessment and hands on practical. The training took place at Halifax Fan’s Yorkshire factory and was completed in two days.
The training demonstrates the correct way to use spray equipment with an emphasis on safety, efficiency and control of coating film thickness.
Spraytrain have been providing training courses for almost 20 years. John Elliott, commented: – “The course ensured all operators could control film thicknesses to comply with specification. We are also seeing paint savings that makes the training a fast return on our training investment”.
