We understand from ,our conversation with Harish Nene Chief Executive, that in the last 4 years they have secured landmark orders for Used Machinery from Indian Rubber and Tyre industry. Pracsol is now fast building on this rising confidence and customer trust to extend practical equipment solutions to the industry in new machinery as well. of International Trade hands-on sweating it out in JNPT (Nhava Sheva Port – Mumbai) with the CHA's and Customs Officials. I handled commercial aspects for my employers importing raw materials, chemicals and machinery for setting up their projects in India. In this process, I became aware of the simple negligence on documentation that companies make while importing their equipment. This resulted in delays for clearing shipment and loss from additional costs (penalties, demurrages, etc). I knew I had an opportunity to make a difference. During this period in 2007, I met Michael Dyer at an expo. Michael owned JM Machinery and was selling used equipment from USA. We discussed the prospects of promoting his machinery in India and we clicked together. I did brief him with my experience. After verifying my credentials through his friends in India, we reached an agreement and I settled in this Industry. Looking back, I would say that I was fortunate to meet Michael at right place and at right time. Since then we have sold many used and reconditioned machinery in Indian market. Harish, you come from a dif- ferent background. How did you choose Rubber and Tyre Machinery as an area of your business? Yes. I am a Graduate of Bombay University with Post Graduation in Central Excise Customs. For over 12 years, I learnt the ropes Pracsol is a strange name. What is the story behind this name?

  12. 12. 13 Know Your Supplier - AUG 2015| Pracsol Chemicals Machinery | Internal Mixer: 7 Quick Tips About Batch Weight Calculation Internal mixer is standard rubber machinery for volume mixing in both tire industry and non-tire rubber industry. When you use one, your most elementary requirement is to calculate the batch weight for your respective mixer model. Because when mixing rubber compounds, you should under- stand that different compounds based on the same polymer might require different batch weights. And different polymers will almost certainly require different batch weights. Here's 7 quick tips for you to fix the batch weight for your rubber mixing. 1) Theoretical Equation The thumb rule is the theoretical equation W= NV x SG x FF, where W - Batch Wt [kg]; NV - Net Mixer Volume [dm³]; SG - Specific Gravity (density) of the mixed batch [kg/dm³]; and FF= Fill Factor. Generally, most mixer manufact- urers share this calculation with you. But remember, what they give you is only a theoretical number. This is only a starting or reference point and you need to arrive at your own mixing batch weight for your compound recipes, following some of the other tips stated below. pressure on the compound, poor dispersion and longer mixing times. Annual measurements of chamber are recommended to update your batch weight correctly. Excessively worn out mixers will have to be rebuilt or reconditioned (Read our posts on mixer rebuilding - Top 25 Things You Should Know to Discuss with Mixer Rebuilder and 17 Essential Questions to Select the Right Rebuilder for your Internal Mixer) 3) Guesstimate the Fill Factor (FF) If you have a Tangential Mixer (aka Banbury) , then your FF can range between 0.70 and 0.85. And for a When the mixer is used regularly (or if you have procured a used-mixer) the effective volume Increases due to wear on the rotors and mixing chamber. 2) Net Mixer Volume (NV) Since Internal mixer has a fixed volume mixing chamber, knowledge of the net volume (in liters) is required. This can be obtained from the manuf- acturer directly or in some cases from their literature for their various models. When the mixer is used regularly (or if you have proc- ured a used-mixer) the effective volume increases due to wear on the rotors and mixing chamber. If not compensated for this inside wear, your batch volume will be effectively too small leading to insufficient ram A Fully Rebuilt Mixer by JM Machinery.
  13. 13. 14 Know Your Supplier - AUG 2015| Pracsol Chemicals Machinery | Intermeshing Mixer (aka Intermix), your FF can range between 0.62 and 0.70. Knowledge of the fill factor is necessary because an under-filled mixing chamber results in the ram bottoming out too soon. This reduces the pressure on the rubber stock and increases the mixing time. An over-filled chamber leads to unmixed ingredients staying in the mixer throat. This creates a mess under the mixer when the batch is dumped. For example, NR-rich compounds in an intermeshing mixer have a fill factor of around 0.65 while for the same compound in a two-wing tangential mixer, it is about 0.75. This compound will have an increased FF of about 0.78 for a tangential mixer with four-wing rotors. Each polymer also has its ideal fill factor and that varies again with Mooney viscosity and filler system. Fill factor of a mixer depends on the age of the machine, wear and tear of the rotors and chamber, the rotor type, rotor speed, rotor friction ratio, nature of elastomer, ratio of elastomers/fillers, mixing sequence, kind of polymers, fillers and individual SG of the ingredients in your recipe, viscosity of ingredients, etc. Generally, the lower the compound viscosity, the fill factor is higher. Hence, we initially guesstimate the FF before stabilizing on the figure later on through actual trials. 4) Estimate the Specific Gravity (SG) of your Compound You can estimate the density of your compound by multiplying the quantity of each ingredient with its individual density (you can get this figure in any compounding handbook or ingredient supplier lite- rature). Sum up your individual results and then divide this number by the total sum (usually phr). The result will give you the estimated density of the compound. (Mathematically, this is the weighted average calculation). For example, lets consider a sample recipe as shown above (I got this recipe from a web search). Calculating, the SG of this Compound mix is arrived at 1.16 (=179.3/155). 5) Know your Internal Mixer Knowing your internal mixer - its capabilities, design features like rotor (tangential or intermeshing), ram (pneumatic with dedicated air supply at the plant or hydraulic), variable speed capabilities of the motor, SCADA, PLC, automati- on and control features, etc. Rotor speeds are critical because you can use higher speeds at the initial mix and then reduce the rotor speed to allow the batch to knead well. This will allow you to get both your dispersion and distribution tasks of mixing right. Hence, when selecting a mixer explore variable speed drives since it give you advantage in your mixing process. (If you are planning a new purchase, read and download our Questionnaire for Internal Mixer Selection). Similarly, think of ram pressure. If your ram pressure is too high you will cause excessive heat build up and poor flow of ingredients across the rotor tips. In intermeshing mixers, this will also cause internal pressure
  14. 14. 8 Know Your Supplier - AUG 2015| Pracsol Chemicals Machinery | within the mixing chamber and might cause mixer failure. If ram pressure is too low, then you will not get the ingredients down into the rotors and this will result in poor mixing. 6) Watch the Ram Action After the above reference calculations are done and mixing initiated; watch the ram action during the mix. The ram should start high, move up and down about an inch or two and bottom out when mixing is complete. Good mixing practice dictates that when the ram bottoms out about 30 - 45 seconds before the batch is dumped, you can be assured that the chamber is properly filled and mixed compounds will be of high quality. You need to observe the position of the -ram by watching the tell-tail rod attach ed to the top of the ram. Hence, this requires more of practice and experience than theoretical knowledge. If you have a good mixing system with controls and feedback features, you can correlate the position of the ram with the current and rise in temperature - these are important to get an optimized batch size and high quality of mix. 7) Optimize Your Mix Batch Size (...Do Not Maximize) The key to successful mixing is optimizing your mix batch size, and not maximizing. And good mixing is a form of art. Most mixer users want to get the most out of their internal mixer (quite natural!) and they test its capabilities to the full. Finally, when they get poor mixing, they wonder if they have done the right investment! If you try to take your batch size to the upper limits of the mixer's capacity as specified in the manufacturer's manual (that is usually a peak magical figure) and you have raw material variations such as particle size or bulk density changes in your fillers, this can lead to poor mixing (dispersion and distribution of ingredients). The right batch size will be smaller, but your internal mixer throughput is increased by shorter mixing time and thus Each mixer is different and it would be very difficult to determine the optimized fill factor without actually conducting several mixing trials. Experience is a key to good mixing. more batches in the same period. Thus, optimizing your batch weight will allow you to get consistent batch quality and repeatability that are of paramount importance to your (or your customers') downstream processes. The key factors that will influence your mixing optimization are compound formulation, ram pressure, mix procedure, mixing speed and rotor design. Each mixer is different and it would be very difficult to determine the optimized fill factor without actually conducting several mixing trials. Experience is a key to good mixing. Summarizing, when mixing rubber compounds, different compounds require different batch weights. These 7 tips will help you calculate the optimized batch weight for your compounding recipes on an internal mixer quicker. This article was first published on Rubber Machinery World Portal.
