News & the The Journey

High Efficiency Bead Mill #2 now installed and ready for action. This 2nd machine provides Hi-Tech with an all important backup machine in the event of breakdowns, but also gives capability to increase pigment dispersion production 3 fold, although recent increases in sales seem to be using up the over capacity pretty quickly.
Hi-Tech are very happy the improvements requested after the 1st machine was installed, have been taken on board for this mill.


Mid March 2015 saw Hi-Tech double it's High Speed Disperser capability with the installation of a 2nd 37kw saw tooth blade disperser. The new disperser, in conjunction with a 5,000L vat and dedicated pumping and filtration equipment, will be used for whites, varnishes and other non coloured products, leaving the original disperser to concentrate on colours to reduce lengthy wash-up cycles. Next week a 2nd High Efficiency Bead Mill is to be commissioned.
