Rubber batching.

This 16-ingredient rubber compound batching system is designed to accurately process powdered chemicals and to precisely weigh each ingredient and the final batching.

The system consists of 13 two-speed electromagnetic vibratory feeders and three two-speed precision volumetric screw feeders made of 304 stainless steel. It also includes eight weigh stations that feature weigh bases with individual electrically powered rollers. The company's Model MTU-2500 bulk-bag unloaders supply the chemicals to the feeders.

For optimum system performance, each powdered chemical was tested at the company's processing and testing center, and the system's feeders were selected based on accuracy and flowability of the product. During processing, materials are fed into a 2.5-cubic-foot bin and weighed within [+ or -] 0.01 pounds, with the final batching accuracy of [+ or -] 0.05 pounds. The final batch is ready for the internal mixer.

The company also supplies Allen Bradley system controls that are designed and built in the firm's on-site UL-listed panel shop.

This company manufactures precision-engineered equipment, systems and controls for the rubber, plastics and other dry powder and solids processing industries.
