Barrel Drying Unit
Internal cleanliness check of the barrels passed through the hole/intactness test is performed by a specialist with the help of a lamp and these washed and rinsed barrels (in wet condition) are taken into the drying unit. Here, drying of each barrel takes 1 minute. meaning that, this is a very fast drying unit. Operators working at this unit must wear thick leather protective gloves since the barrels are extremely hot; so this is an absolutely required procedure. The dried barrels are checked against any wetness by specialists again with a lamp and if they are in proper condition, both taps are closed and the barrels are directed to the painting unit. During the procedure implemented at this unit the barrels are at very high temperatures, which makes it sort of an oven-painting and the barrel paint dries instantly.
