Pawcatuck, Conn. — Davis-Standard, LLC will promote the company’s full range of elastomer extrusion technology during the International Elastomer Conference, Booth #224, October 12-15 in Cleveland, Ohio. Davis-Standard will display its DSREV rubber extruder with a model 2000 crosshead and Uth rollex® 70 gear pump/strainer system with a two-roll feeder (TRF). Supporting control technology will also be shown. Davis-Standard recently installed a technical cell with this equipment at its facility in Pawcatuck to support processes ranging from hose, automotive seals and architectural gaskets to in-line straining and pressure stabilization applications.
“We always look forward to this show to present technical solutions for customers to improve their elastomer extrusion processes,” said Joe Wnuk, Vice President of Davis-Standard Elastomer and Profile Systems. “This includes increased output rates, lower extrudate temperatures, and options for fine mesh straining and vacuum venting. Our exhibit at the show is nearly identical to our new lab in Pawcatuck, which has already proven valuable in supporting customer RD efforts.”
The DSREV extruder is Davis-Standard’s flagship design. It is a preconfigured machine with feedscrew and head zone direct injection temperature control units, a compact base, and simplified cooling and wiring systems. Other advantages include touch-screen controls, process data acquisition, and easily accessible machine components. The Model 2000 hydraulic crosshead reduces scrap and enables faster start-up times. The hydraulic actuation of the flow diverter/core tube enables quick tooling changes and simplified cleaning. All interior flow surfaces are coated with engineered formulations for better resistance and material flow.
When this technology is coupled with the Uth gear pump, processors are able to isolate high pressure and achieve pressure stabilization. The gear pump is equipped with an Uth two-roll feeder (TRF) for cold feeding or to be used as a stand-alone device for fine mesh straining. Other gear pump advantages include improved filtration, reduced material retention time and a small footprint to easily integrate into existing lines.
