ENERGY CONSERVATION IN AUTOMOTIVE FINISHING

The rapid strides which have been made in the last four to six years to reduce energy costs in the painting of automobiles have shown that some dramatic economies are possible and saving of energy in excess of 50% per vehicle can be achieved. Much of the potential stems from the emphasis placed on automation and the ultimate in economy is yet to be reached. This paper presents typical requirements of electricity and heat for a small automotive painting plant, then examines some of the variables which influence these figures.
