Fine mesh straining of rubber compounds greatly improved quality and cost-savings

Fulda, Germany – From 22nd to 24th June 2022 in the Expo Center Norte in São Paulo (Brazil) at Expobor 2022, UTH GmbH will be introducing their latest technological developments and expanded product range – based on UTH’s proven roll-ex® gear pump technology. These include in particular the latest fine mesh straining solutions, which are increasingly being used in the rubber and tire industry due to the growing demand for high quality and sustainability. In addition to the challenge posed by new material requirements, the focus is on consistently reducing scrap rates in order to cut costs and save valuable resources. Accordingly, UTH has focused on optimizing the manufacturing of rubber and silicone products.

With throughputs up to 10000 kg/h, UTH’s roll-ex® gear extruder systems have set the benchmark worldwide for fine mesh straining of rubber compounds. Using either the compact two-roll feeder (TRF) or a conical twin screw feeder (DSE), the modular design of the roll-ex® system enables the integration of the strainer in each specific line design. Because of the flexible and compact design a seamless integration into existing lines is also possible.

At UTH’s booth, visitors will learn all about the outstanding solution for the economical processing of rework material: the TRP Reworker. This modular system offers various options, especially for tire production, and thus helps to save energy as well as raw material and reduces process-related waste. In addition, the product portfolio of UTH GmbH also includes innovations such as the continuous polymer dosing system and products for silicone compounding.

Over 35 years UTH has been successfully established on the international market, specializing in the development of customer-specific solutions for the rubber and tire industry. These are used in the different areas of tire manufacturing, for example, in the mixing line for the final compound and master batch, complete offline straining cells and in the extrusion line. The range of intelligent upstream and downstream equipment, which enables seamless integration in mixing lines of all sizes is just as much a part of the scope of supply as the essential after sales service.
