MDC Engineering: VulcanoClean - LCM line for continuous vulcanisation of extruded rubber profiles

MDC will present the VulcanoClean system in detail, additional equipment for completing the production line, and technical services. The complete system includes the salt bath, the so-called EcoClean unit, combining collection and recycling of salt, the evaporator furnace, and an exhaust extraction unit. According to MDC, the EcoClean unit allows an almost 100 % recovery of the vulcanisation salt which is carried over by the vulcanised rubber profile. The first part of the salt - still molten - is removed at the end of the salt bath. The remaining salt is washed off in several steps within the rinsing cascade, permitting the concentration of the resulting salt solution, which is cleaned and collected in the waste water tank. The waste water will be injected (in portions) into the evaporator furnace, the water becomes vaporised, and the salt is back in the supply cycle. Exhaust gases are treated in the extraction unit before they are discharged.MDC Engineering in cooperation with Durferrit
For several years Durferrit LCM equipment has been developed, manufactured, and marketed in close partnership between Durferrit GmbH, Germany, and MDC Engineering S.a.r.l., France. Since early 2013 MDC Engineering has taken over the sole distributorship for this field of ­activity. Both companies plan to carry on their partnership and Durferrit GmbH will continue to supply its salt furnace technology to MDC in the future too. All equipment for salt bath vulcanisation will now be available directly from MDC Engineering, whereas the salt required for the LCM vulcanisation lines will be exclusively supplied by Durferrit GmbH.Hall 15, stand C01
