At the start of our cooperation with Inoutic, the company’s mixing equipment, which had been in service for many years, no longer met today’s demand in terms of throughput, service life and maintenance expenditure. Space constraints proved a critical factor and posed a special challenge when it came to modifying and optimising the machines.
A standard-setting product quality and maximum cost-efficiency – these were the requirements imposed by our customer in the planning of the new production line. Consistent with the properties of the raw materials employed, special importance was attached to an optimum dispersion of all pigments in addition to maximum throughput. The aim was to set up a production operation that fully meets today's as well as tomorrow's demands.
For the production of special plasticized PVC compounds with Shore hardnesses above A30, Rottolin wanted a mixing line that offered not only semi-automatic operation but also maximum flexibility when changing over formulations. The variety of raw materials and the amount of space available made special challenges on the design, construction and assembly of the system.
When planning a new compounding plant for the production of PVC roof membranes, maximum specific output combined with minimum energy consumption was one of the key issues. The existing space conditions made special demands on the design of all the plant components.
Rich sauces was looking for a mixer to homogenise bulky (free flowing) and liquid components of their recipes, having different product properties. They required a most economical and sanitary preparation of these spice mixtures which are used in sauces and mayonnaise. An easy to clean unit with an intuitive handling was essential due to the great variety of products.
