MARS (Multi-point Automated powder Recycling System) is recommended for quality conscious and high-production powder coating lines where the powder recovered in the bins needs to be quickly and automatcically recycled back into the master powder hopper of the coating equipments (after being sieved and mixed, as required, with fresh, virgin powder before being reused) as an ongoing process.
For a Multi-point recycling system, an electronic control unit is provided which allows virgin powder to be mixed with this recovered powder at the time of dropping into the on-line sieving system itself. The mix-ratio can be set on the control panel. Depending on the volume of overspray, timings can be set so that the powder bin in the recovery system is regularly and automatically emptied of collected oversprayed powder.
The sieving system uses a high-efficiency electric sieving arrangement rather than a pneumatic (one which uses huge amounts of compressed air) to operate efficiently and at a high rate of pass-through of powder.
