Davis-Standard, LLC will promote the company’s full range of elastomer extrusion technology and aftermarket services during the International Elastomer Conference, Booth #1127, October 9-12, in Cleveland, Ohio. Davis-Standard will have information on extrusion equipment, feedscrews and controls, including the company’s popular DSREV rubber extruder, Model 2000 crosshead and Uth rollex® 70 gear pump/strainer system with two-roll feeder (TRF). An aftermarket representative will be available to discuss feedscrew services, spare parts, extruder rebuilds, process control upgrades and other options for improved processing. In addition, Davis-Standard will discuss the technical cell at its facility in Pawcatuck to support R&D for hose, automotive seals and architectural applications as well as processes requiring in-line straining and pressure stabilization.
“This show is an excellent opportunity for us to gain insight from customers on equipment performance, new opportunities and how we can further support elastomer 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.”
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 can isolate high pressure and achieve pressure stabilization. The gear pump is equipped with a Uth two-roll feeder (TRF) to be used as a stand-alone device for fine mesh straining, or for cold feeding. Other gear pump advantages include improved filtration, reduced material retention time and a small footprint for easy integration into existing lines.
