Title (EN) AN APPARATUS FOR CLEANING VINYL BILLBOARDS AND FLEX FACES
(FR) APPAREIL DE NETTOYAGE DE PANNEAUX D'AFFICHAGE ET DE SURFACES SOUPLES EN VINYLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for cleaning and recycling used vinyl billboards and flex faces by attaching the used media to a series of endless belts (2) which transport the used billboard through a chemical bath (38). A chemical solution is then dispensed on the painted surfaces of the billboard using a series of spray nozzles (74, 80), then brushes (92) remove the remaining paint and simultaneously polish the used surface. The used solvent containing the dissolved paints is cleaned and recycled (see figure 13) for reuse.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil de nettoyage et de recyclage de panneaux d'affichage et de surfaces souples en vinyle usés, ce procédé consistant à fixer les supports usés à une série de courroies (2) sans fin qui transportent le panneau d'affichage usé dans un bain chimique (38). On déverse ensuite une solution chimique sur les surfaces peintes du panneau d'affichage au moyen d'une série d'ajutages (74, 80) de pulvérisation, puis des brosses (92) retirent le reste de peinture et polissent simultanément la surface usée. Le solvant usé contenant les peintures dissoutes est épuré et recyclé (voir figure 13) en vue d'être réutilisé.
