Time and technology can both have an impact on your paint-finishing system. Repairs or upgrades may be required over the lifetime of the equipment. You can improve equipment performance and product quality by replacing the following components:


  • Worn-out parts like oven burner boxes
  • Supply ductwork
  • Exhaust fans and stacks
  • Washer tank immersion tubes
  • Spray risers and headers 
  • Expand an existing oven to increase capacity or dwell time
  • Install entry and exit vestibules or gravity hoods to contain heat rollout

What is Retrofitting?


Retrofitting is modifying existing equipment or machines to improve functionality, reliability, and efficiency. The retrofit can involve replacing parts with new components or adding additional features to the existing equipment. 


With retrofitting, engineers can quickly upgrade the finished systems without completely replacing them, saving time and money. It is an ideal solution for manufacturers that need to keep their production lines running while improving performance.

Benefits of Retrofitting


There are several benefits to retrofitting your finish systems.


  • It can improve the durability of your equipment, allowing it to last longer and produce better results. 


  • It can help reduce energy costs and improve environmental performance. By installing more efficient components, such as motors, pumps, and fans, operators can decrease their energy consumption while significantly improving the system’s output.


  • It is often used to update aging equipment with the latest available technologies to stay competitive in a market with constantly changing needs.


  • It also helps to improve the safety and ergonomics of the workplace. By replacing old parts with new, safer components, operators can reduce their risk of injury and equipment failure.


  • It enhances the system’s overall performance by improving production throughput, quality control, and accuracy.


Overall, retrofitting is a cost-effective way to improve the performance of existing equipment and increase the efficiency of production lines. By making the necessary modifications, manufacturers can keep their equipment up to date and ensure that it meets current industry standards.

Common Applications of Retrofitting


Retrofitting can be applied to the commercial and industrial kitchen equipment, industrial finishing systems, manufacturing machinery, and more. It is a cost-effective way to improve the performance of existing systems and save money in the long run.


Retrofitting is an excellent option for commercial kitchens, as it can provide more efficient energy usage, improved sanitation and hygiene standards, and more ergonomic design.
