New solutions for the gentle processing of rubber compounds at the K 2016 in Düsseldorf from 19th to 26th of October. UTH GmbH, from Fulda, presents its expanded product range, including both the roll-ex® fine mesh straining technology and roll-ex® gear pump technology at stand D41 in hall 15.
UTH has been producing gear extruders for the tyre, rubber and silicone industry for more than 20 years. The premiere of these innovative products took place at the K 1995 in Düsseldorf. With its gear pump systems, UTH set a new standard concerning the processing of highly accelerated rubber compounds. With this new technology, the continuous and efficient straining of rubber compounds under high pressure yet at constant temperature became possible for the first time.
In the 1980s, experts from UTH realised that contaminated compounds led to considerable quality defects in the rubber industry. The solutions that were available on the market at that time were unsatisfactory especially in terms of their throughput. The system presented at the K 1995 had a throughput of 200 kg/h, which was truly groundbreaking back then. Today, UTH produces gear pump extruders and strainers with a throughput of up to 10,000 kg/h.
Apart from fine mesh straining, precision extrusion is another application focus of roll-ex® gear extruders and gear pumps where high working pressures of up to 800 bar can be applied. UTH can supply complete lines as a system solution for the manufacture of rubber-coated wire, yarn or fibre components.
Based on exhibits, UTH GmbH will provide visitors at stand D41 in hall 15 with information about the particular benefits and potential applications of the roll-ex® systems.
