Degassing station for filling and transferring high- and low-viscosity synthetic resin components

TAVA F – Vacuum drum

Possible Applications

  • Material optimization before processing
  • Reduction of material waste
  • Process-oriented cost optimization
  • Drum filling at the material manufacturer

The TAVA F degassing station is the future-oriented solution for cost-optimized and waste-free filling of flowable and paste-like components used in synthetic resin processing. For all companies working with dosing and mixing systems and wishing to increase the quality of their synthetic resin applications, it paves the way to cost reduction and waste avoidance: As a resource-saving material preparation by degassing and eliminating air inclusions in the delivery container or as a preparation of unmixed residual quantities from ongoing production.

The TAVA F offers two main advantages:

  1. the material prepared in a vacuum drum is reliably freed from air inclusions and moisture. This means that only optimally prepared material enters the resin processing stage, causing no process disturbances and significantly improving product quality!
  2. unmixed material residues can be processed in the TAVA F and fed back into the production process. This sustainably reduces waste volumes and reduces the cost of purchasing new material!

TAVA F is not only profitable for the processing company! The material manufacturer also benefits from the use of the evacuation station. Thanks to filling under vacuum, he can provide his customers with guaranteed process-safe containers without (moist) air inclusions. Since contamination of the material with air and moisture is ruled out, its storage stability is also improved.

Safe media handling without air bubbles

As an upstream system integrated into production, the TAVA F can significantly increase process reliability when the optimized material is subsequently processed in a dosing, mixing and application system. The risk of process interruptions is minimized, as are all costs caused by material losses for rinsing and cleaning runs and for spare parts.

In combination with a pumping station for transferring – for example a NODOPOX 200 1K – all unmixed material residues that occur during drum changes or test runs to optimize the mixing ratios can be reused. They can be collected and returned to the processing line after preparation in the TAVA F. This significantly reduces the costs for purchasing new material and for waste disposal!

The alternative for low-viscosity components

For air- and moisture-free filling and transfer of very liquid and low-viscosity components into the tanks of dosing and mixing systems, into buffer tanks or into IBCs, we also recommend our T-EVAC degassing system. It is available to you in the inline and an offline variant.

  • Weighing system for accurate fill quantity determination
  • Printer (reports/logging)
  • Interchangeable machine parts (if different materials are to be degassed with one system)
  • Filling lance (for filling from bottom to top with particularly highly viscous material -> no air voids between material layers)
  • Smoothing brush for sealing the surface
  • Ascending mixer plus smooth coater
  • Data exchange with other filling systems (e.g. emergency stop signal)
  • Various automation options

Modules

For further process optimization in synthetic resin processing, the TAVA F degassing station can be adapted to individual requirements with the following modules.

  • Other container sizes: Different container sizes can be filled with one TAVA F. Fast, tool-free container changeover; low cleaning effort for the product-carrying components.
  • Handling technology: drum lifter, rope winch, roller conveyor, mobile base frames
  • Weighing system for precise filling quantity determination

As a special machine builder, we can also implement many other process- or environment-specific adaptations.
