Optimising the continuous final mixing of rubber compounds by Simon Benedikt Wachter

By Simon Benedikt Wachter

the first target of this learn undertaking used to be to uniquely redecorate, strengthen and validate the continual ultimate blending of rubber compounds utilizing unmarried screw extruder apparatus pump combinations.
The thesis describes the creation of novel tools and reconfiguration of ultimate blending as a continuing strategy in one screw extruder. This ended in the removal of 1 of the blending steps in an inner mixer for many compounds and the continual blending of curing brokers or extra filler fabric into the bottom compound. the unconventional alterations brought have numerous benefits for the method permitting expense and effort rate reductions through the creation of rubber compounds.
The venture all started with assessment of the present to be had know-how and clinical history of rubber processing and combining in unmarried screw extruders. the combo of applied sciences, reminiscent of diversified blending geometries in screws and barrels and the mix of those structures with a apparatus pump allowed a brand new approach to ultimate blending to be proposed, brought and evaluated.
Following preliminary simple feasibility trials, the preliminary suggestion used to be increased to the layout and construct of an business scale approach. eventually, the approach used to be carefully evaluated and the results from trying out proved that scaling up and the transition to the recent process right into a operating commercial approach used to be profitable. The ensuing creation computer is able to ultimate blending traditional rubber compounds on an commercial scale and may substitute the batch to batch strategy at present used.
