Rubber Machinery / Rubber Processing Machines - A Brief
Rubber processing machines are used in a
variety of applications in rubber industry to process low viscosity
adhesives to high viscosity rubber. These machines are used to develop the
required level of properties in elastomer such as resilience, abrasion
resistance, flex resistance, hardness & tensile strength, etc. Raw
elastomers are mixed with various compounding ingredients, shaped &
cured. The three components - mixing, shaping & curing - together
constitute ''Rubber Processing''. Some important equipment integrated with
rubber processing machines are:
The mixing chamber is made from alloy steel & is a 'W' shape through
which the rotors are assembled. The contact surface of the chamber is
stelite welded & wear resistant hard chrome plated. Special steel jacket
is provided for cooling & steam for heating. The rotors are coupled with
special quality rotary joints to take water or steam.
This is made from alloy steel & is fitted with special pneumatic
cylinder to press the material to be mixed. Wider surface area is provided
which allow the ingredients being mixed to turn & move in the chamber
freely. An arrangement for water or steam circulation is provided & the
surface is hard chrome plated.
Dust collector is provided to collect spurt powder during mixing & this
collected powder can further be used in mixing, hence saving of waste
Electrical Control Board
A powder coated, dust proof electrical panel box is provided fitted with
voltmeter, ampere meter, temp. indicators cum controller, contactors, timer,
buzzer, emergency button, interlocking provision, on/off switches for
motors, hand operated valves, overload relay etc.
The machine has common bed on which all components are arranged in proper
manner by which there is no need of foundation.
