How to dispense a product that is subject to degradationR&D dosing solution for a range of viscosities
A customer with suurDOS® multi-channel dosing systems in use on various production lines in Europe, Asia and America, wished to modernize their R & D dosing unit, and modify it to comply with the latest safety standards. Based on experience in the production environment, Suurmond designed a custom single-channel dosing unit complete with control system and data logging.
Within an extrusion process, this dosing unit dispenses a product that is subject to degradation (aging) due to air exposure. The dosing unit must therefore incorporate the necessary facilities to inhibit or prevent this degradation. The dosing unit is used to dispense products with a range of viscosities in a R & D department.
The suurDOS® unit is equipped with two storage vessels that are fully heated.
Each vessel incorporates a nitrogen blanket above the contents to inhibit premature aging of the product.
