Dosing liquid additive into a compounding extruder

Dosing liquid additive into a compounding extruder

 

Problem:

Outdated, unsafe installation for dosing liquid additives 
where the production had to be stopped to change the 
feedstock barrel.

Solution:

Mobile, multi employable suurDOS micro unit with 
pump protection, fluid detection, leak-free 
quick connect coupling and buffer tank. 

 

 
 
   

 

Case:

Our client used a unit of their own design for dosing fluid additives into a mixing extruder that was designed to operate in a range of outputs from 0.25 to 3.8 kg per hour.
The installation was an outdated system that was unsafe due to the lack of a pump protection. Also, the production had to be stopped to change the barrel. This caused unnecessary production loss and costs!!
 
 

Our solution:

Suurmond designed a suurDOS micro based on the process data and the requirements of the client, taking safety and production continuity as the starting points. 
The suurDOS unit was equipped with a Gather DRIP pump, size I. The DRIP is a robust dosing pump that can dose quantities of fluids from 0.02 – 5.00 litres per hour (0.33 – 83,33 ml/min.). 
The suurDOS® was produced with a fluid leakage detector to prevent the pump from dry-running. Further, we made use of leak-free quick connect couplings to make changing the stock barrel a simple and clean job. 

In addition, the buffer tank provides that the production does not need to be halted during the exchange of the feedstock barrel.

In short; the process not only became safer but also more efficient!

demanding processes, sustainable solutions!
