Recycling solution for large-volume scrap rubber
KraussMaffei Berstorff Stand 8030
On the occasion of Tire Technology Expo 2018, KraussMaffei Berstorff will showcase the new CompoundRework system 1000 (CRS 1000), which is designed for the reprocessing of scrap material generated during extrusion processes.
According to the company, most extrusion processes inevitably involve the production of a certain amount of recyclable scrap, i.e., residual material that remains in the extruder or in the extrusion head in the event of compound or extrusion tool changes. The CRS 1000 processes large-volume rubber residues removed from the flow channels as well as start-up scrap, converting the material into sheets or strips with a thickness of 8 mm. This means that 100 % of the residual material can be returned to the production process.
The CRS 1000 is equipped with two (optionally) heated rolls and a hydraulically adjusted roll gap. It is suitable for a wide range of different materials and can be fed with residual material of various sizes up to a width of one meter. The feeding unit with automatic intake gap is equipped with all required safety features to minimise the risk of personal injury, said KraussMaffei Berstorff. Easy accessibility facilitates maintenance and cleaning operations. The simplified control of the complete line enables one-man operation. As the CRS 1000 comes with the complete electrical equipment and control system, it is ready for start-up immediately upon installation. On 20 February 2018 at 5.30 p.m., interested visitors to the trade show will be given the opportunity to experience a live demonstration of the CRS 1000 on the KraussMaffei Berstorff premises.
