LCM Vulcanization lines according to VulcanoClean process

The salt bath technology is recognized worldwide as the best method for continuous vulcanization of elastomer profiles, both in its ability to fast transfer heat, the temperature uniformity and simplicity of implementation, the surface quality with soft skin appearance, as well as the good mechanical properties linked to the LCM process and the possibility to vulcanise of all kind of polymer blends.

Since MDC Engineering S.a.r.l. in France in cooperation with the company Durferrit ® GmbH in Germany in the late 90s, has revolutionized the bath salt lines to make them extremely modern, efficient and secure, many new applications appeared. In addition, thanks to new peroxide blends which can usually only be vulcanised in LCM lines, very high productivities, unimaginable 20 years ago, are now reached.

The environmental aspect, and the energy aspect as well, which were weak points twenty years ago than competing technologies of the time such as hot air + microwave or hot air shock systems, have made the LCM technology as being the leader with the most efficiency with less energy per kg and the best technology environment-friendly in comparison with competing techniques, and these, thanks to the process named VulcanoClean for the removal of pollutant emissions and combining a heating by means of immersed heat exchangers electric / gas through the liquid salt, that is the new generation of LCM lines proposed by MDC Engineering

Global project management

By this topic, MDC Engineering proposes a service of global industrial architect of an investment project, from the simple supply of a LCM line VulcanoClean, to a complete production line, including the definition of upstream elements and downstream until the finished extruded products resulting of the production to be packaged and ready for shipping.

From this achieved and budgeted study of this project, the client can either consult separately with different suppliers or chose the next service of "technical assistance" contract also proposed by MDC Engineering.

Adaptation of the VulcanoClean process on existing LCM lines

The LCM salt bath technology is probably one of the oldest for continuous vulcanization of extruded profiles and a very large number of rows remain working in the industrialized world, most of which are not in compliance with safety and environmental. MDC Engineering proposes to study the adaptation of VulcanoClean process. After study, some customers preferred the investment of a new line, but to date, we have over 18 references of adaptation.

Adaptation for the treatment of vulcanising fumes

Adaptation of devices for treatments of fumes for all kind of existing continuous vulcanization lines for extruded profiles.

These last few years the legislation on air emissions has increased significantly, leading companies to reflect on their existing production resources and their future production in term of environment-friendly. Today, reinforced by his works to design the VulcanoClean process in compliance with environment, MDC Engineering can propose to adapt some of its devices on existing lines, whatever is the type of LCM or possibly the UHF / hot air processes, in order to improve or solve the problem of atmospheric emissions.

About us

Company details

MDC ENGINEERING "in Cooperation with Durferrit®: Founded by Jean-Baptiste de Chamisso, MDC ENGINEERING is the exclusive distributor of the LCM vulcanisation salt bath line, innovative and environment-friendly, named VulcanoClean, in collaboration with the World leader of technologies by salt liquid bath : Durferrit ® GmbH.
The innovation of the vulcanization line (LCM: Liquid Curing Media) VulcanoClean lies in its patented machine: EcoClean, green revolution in this business field which allows the integral recycling of the whole vulcanisation salts, the treatment of fumes and of all rinsing waters, with work in closed circuit, and so for all kind of LCM lines used for the extrusion and the continuous vulcanisation of profiled rubber (EPDM, NR, CR, SBR ...).

Focus Jean-Baptiste de Chamisso
Engineer, Jean-Baptiste de Chamisso has worked since 1987 to develop a new generation of equipment for the rubber industry in the specialized company Durferrit ®, the worldwide leader of salt bath technologies (industrial applications 140 ° C to 1250 ° C for heat treatments and thermo chemical treatments of metals). He is the inventor of LCM VulcanoClean lines for continuous vulcanization in salt baths of extruded polymers, a pollution-free technology, now worldwide recognized.

His work has spawned a revolution in the industrial world of vulcanization. The process VulcanoClean, environmentally friendly, incorporates a recirculation system and an efficient washing system specifically with a reclaiming salt system, as well as with low energy consumption. Today it is no comparison on the market and has not any equivalent to the VulcanoClean.
