OFS Smart repair make big paint savings with Nitrotherm Spray System

OFS smart repair is a “jewel of a body shop” in the heart of Bloemfontein’s industrial area. The Directors, Jeani Meyer and Gysie Pienaar, recently moved to implement Eurosider’s latest Nitrotherm Spray System technology on three production spray booths. They also purchased a unit specifically to gain savings on their preparation costs. Gysie says that in the few months of them using the nitrogen rich air spray which replaces normal compressed air in the application of paint, their monthly paint bills have seen a dramatic reduction of approximately 25%, as well as savings on labour. Production has also increased significantly by about two complete units extra a day. Looking at other significant process savings, OFS Smart Repair say that their calculations show that the reduction in over spray will further reduce filter changes by some 60% in maintenance costs, allowing all together a ROI in three month of work.

Eurosider is very proud to see Nitrotherm technology spread its benefits in the other part of the world, compared to where it was born, contributing all over the world to healthier workers environment which is especially important for manual coating.
