The Albag‘s pieces of equipment for the handling of PVC compounds, with centralized or stand-alone vacuum-operated tubing system, will be in the spotlight at the company’s booth for Interplast. Yet another differential is the programmable logic controller (PLC) system to automate the supply and even out the level of material in the extruding machine funnel.
The pieces of equipment for the handling of PVC compounds are used for the supply of raw material in mixers, such as the feeding of PVC resin, calcium carbonate, and other ingredients, which can be pelleted or ground. Among the advantages, the optimization of direct labor, a decrease in the waste of raw material, and the elimination of dust in the plant’s environment are moreover set off.
A scale aids in the automation of the equipment for the handling of PVC compounds
The pieces of equipment for the handling of PVC compounds have crucial gain with the integration of a scale for PVC compounds, used for the batching and the weighing of PVC resin, of calcium carbonate, and of other ingredients of the compound. The scale ensures automation of the feeding process in the mixers and handles the capacity of the system, in accordance with the batch of the mixer (liters/batch), with an accuracy of up to 0.5% for each component.
Beyond the scale, the raw material is forwarded to the conveying pieces of equipment of PVC compounds by means of tubing and the system controlled by PLC generates a database with the history of the variables from the process. Among the advantages, there is highlight for the increase in productivity and the excellent repeatability of the process of raw material weighing.
