Two-Shot Molding Elastomers offer alternative to silicone gaskets.

December 18, 2014

Impact-resistant, 2-shot STK thermoplastic elastomers, available in hardnesses from 40 Shore A to 90 Shore A, can be overmolded, twin shot molded, or coextruded in one operation. Properties and design negate need to use silicone gaskets or insert them into housings, while rubbery material improves housing and gasket aspects. Resistant to household cleaning products, elastomers overmold onto diverse substrates: PC, ABS, PC/ABS, acrylic, PBT, PS, PP, PE, copolyester, and polyamides. Read More

Sample Heater increases lab process flexibility.

December 18, 2014

Designed to assist biological laboratories, Flexi-block can heat biological or chemical laboratory samples from ambient up to 200°C, even when stored in 0.2, 0.5, 2.0 or 5.0 ml micro tubes, or any diameter test-tube, vial, cuvette, or micro plate. Flexibility lets researchers heat any sample, regardless of container or type, without changing or recalibrating instruments. Range is enabled by incorporation of 1.5 ml dia autoclaveable beads manufactured from high-density ceramic. Read More

Fluid Bed Dryer With Inlet Tray prevents infeed blockages.

December 17, 2014

Offered as custom option on new machinery or retrofit for Witte units already in field, airslide inlet tray is installed within infeed section where material enters drying system. Directing heated airstream through openings in stainless steel plate that face downstream and parallel to infeed deck prevents sticky materials from clumping at entry of vibrating fluid bed dryers and coolers. Incoming products begin drying immediately and advance gently and consistently to primary drying zone. Read More
