New solutions from UTH for clean rubber compounds processing
UTH will present its latest product range, in both the areas of roll-ex fine mesh straining and roll-ex gear pump technology at the DKT/IRC event which will be held from July 2-5, 2018 at Nuremberg, Germany. These new solutions would provide a gentle and clean processing of rubber compounds. Rubber processing presents enormous challenges day in day out to rubber and tyre manufacturers. The demand is for the highest level of product quality while simultaneously increasing operating efficiency.
The roll-ex 220 model UTH offers an economical solution for the manufacturing of tyre, rubber and silicone products. The roll-ex 220 TRF is designed for throughput rates of up to 2,500 kg/h and guarantees a high productivity. It is advantageous to use roll-ex gear extruders (even with frequent compound changes or the usage of coloured materials), since they can be cleaned quickly and thoroughly on account of their patented design. The modular roll-ex system can be combined with a two-roll feeder (TRF), a screw feeder, or a conical twin-screw extruder. Throughput rates of up to 10,000 kg/h are possible.
Precise extrusion is another primary application of roll-ex gear extruders and gear pumps, where high operating pressures (up to 800 bars) can be applied. UTH can offer, among other things, system solutions (including the supply of complete lines) for the manufacture of rubber-coated wire, yarn or fibre components.
