At Tire Technology Expo 2023 (March 21-23), UTH will be exhibiting its extensive product range, which includes its Roll-Ex fine mesh straining solutions and Roll-Ex gear pump technology.
Both of the technologies enable rubber and tire manufacturers to meet the challenges of rubber processing, including the sector’s demand for the highest quality products and increased cost effectiveness. To achieve this, and to deliver sustainable and reliable processes, UTH has developed its latest generation of Roll-Ex machines.
The company’s machines have been designed for use within a multitude of tire manufacturing areas, including in the rework area, the mixing line for the final compound and masterbatch, complete offline straining cells and in the extrusion line.
UTH’s proven Roll-Ex extrusion system conducts fine mesh straining, and the Roll-Ex gear pump ensures the gentle processing of the material and fast compound changes. Capable of throughputs of up to 10,000kg/h, the gear pump extruder and strainer solutions are developed for the cost-effective performance of mixing lines. In-line straining, in particular, offers advantages in tire production, which are shown, for example, when straining masterbatch stages or final batch. The modular combination of the patented gear pump with a two-roll feeder or a conical double-screw extruder enables integration in the majority of mixing lines.
The company also states there is a market demand for continuous strip making solutions with optional straining capability. To meet these demands, a compact straining cell consisting of a gear pump with a single screw extruder as well a cooling line and stacking unit is used.
