Canada "The Process Equipment People," designs,
engineers and manufactures Process Systems to individual customer's process parameters and
The scope of PATTERSON's activity in these Process Systems
can range from the system design and supply of equipment through to the full turnkey
involvement including the equipment installation, start-up and full commissioning of the
PATTERSON Process Systems range from modular pilot-size
skid mounted research and development units through pre-production to full scale
manufacturing sized installations. For a University, a 5 litre PATTERSON Polymer Reactor
System was supplied while for major coatings (paint) manufacturer, a 5000 USG
Resin System was installed.
PATTERSON Process System projects typically involve the
processing of liquids, solids or liquids and solids and generally requiring some of the
- Liquids and/or Solids Materials Charging System involving
Metering Pumps, Solids Handling Equipment and Weighing Equipment.
- Premix - Mixing of small quantities of Liquids and/or Solids
- Reaction Equipment - Process Vessel with Agitator
- Solvent/Liquid Recovery System of Vapors
- Vacuum Systems
- Heating and Cooling Systems
- Dilution/Blending Equipment
- Instrumentation and Controls
Within the various Process Systems, the scope and type of
equipment involved in the individual functions will vary with the requirements of the
method of processing necessary to achieve the end product.
PATTERSON Resin Systems have applications in many industries where multiple functions
such as mixing and reacting occur. PATTERSON's prime area of activity has been the coating
industry for the supply of systems used to produce various types of resins that are used
in the manufacture of paints, inks, varnishes, adhesives and other paper coatings.
PATTERSON's knowledge and experience in the design, engineering and manufacturing of
Grease Manufacturing Equipment has presented the opportunity to offer both pilot size and
full scale production facilities.
PATTERSON also design, engineer and manufacture systems for the Chemical Treatment of
various raw materials to change their physical characteristics and recovery of chemicals
for industrial processes.
PATTERSON Resin Systems
PATTERSON Industries Canada is
recognized as a leading North American
manufacturer of custom designed and engineered Resin Systems and Resin Systems Components.
PATTERSON supplies equipment for resins, specifically for the coatings industry and
typically paints - the types being Alkyd (oil based) and Latex (water based).
Resin Systems generally involve an agitated resin kettle which was in earlier days
heated by a direct fired gas furnace and later indirectly heated using steam or thermal
fluid to cook the resins; with an electrically driven means of mechanical agitation to mix
the resin. Once this resin was cooked, it was then either gravity fed or pumped over to a
thinning tank where the pigments, colorants and oils or waters were added to produce the
Through the avenues of research and development, the range and types of synthetic
resins have been greatly increased to include not only alkyd and latex but also others
such as acrylic, urethane, epoxy, polyester, phenolic and many others. Production
equipment requirements to produce such resins, while meeting plant health and safety
standards and also complying with environmental conditions, have resulted in systems now
involving sub-systems and components outlined above.
PATTERSON's growth in the Resin Industry runs parallel with the development of Resins
for the coatings industry and its expanded range of usage with increasing applications.
From initially supplying the Resin Kettles and Thinning Tank type installations,
PATTERSON now design and supply total Resin Systems for major resin producers. Our designs
incorporate unique design features and utilize the latest in technological developments
that ensure that the systems supplied will meet the production requirements as we approach
the 21st century.
Systems are designed for maximum equipment efficiency, low operating costs and minimum
maintenance that will result in years of dependable service.
Most of the Process System components are designed,
engineered and manufactured by PATTERSON.
PATTERSON's years of experience have shown that this
approach results in a better coordinated design.
PATTERSON's professional experience together with pride in
workmanship ensures the highest standard of equipment for cost effective operation and
years of trouble free service.
When you turn your system design over to PATTERSON, you do
so with the comforting knowledge that there is one responsibility from start to finish.
Units can be individually designed to customer's material
specifications and process parameters upon request.
