The mixer is an indispensable machine in rubber processing
A mixer is a type of equipment used for rubber production, mainly used to mix rubber into the desired shape and size. It is an indispensable part of rubber processing. This article will introduce the working principle, classification, and application of the open mill.
The working principle of a rubber mixer is to place rubber products into the open mixing chamber of the mixer, and then mix them with other additives. The mixing chamber of the mixer is usually composed of two parallel drums. The spacing between these rollers can be adjusted to control the degree of rubber mixing. The outer surface of the drum is usually carved with small grooves to help mix rubber with other additives during the mixing process.
During the mixing process, the drum of the mixer will continuously rotate to gradually flatten and stretch the rubber. The purpose of doing so is to expel the air from the rubber and make it mix more evenly. At the same time, thermal energy is also input into the rubber, making it easier to mix.
After mixing is completed, the rubber will be taken out of the mixer and processed into the desired shape and size. These shapes and sizes are usually manufactured through molds.
Open mills can be divided into two categories based on their structure and application: flat plate open mills and inclined open mills.
The flat plate mixer is mainly used for producing rubber products, such as rubber plates, rubber pipes, rubber strips, etc. It usually consists of two horizontally placed rollers. This structure makes the flat plate mixer more uniform when mixing rubber. In addition, the mixing chamber of the flat plate mixer is large and can accommodate a large amount of rubber raw materials. This makes it more suitable for mass production of rubber products.
The inclined mixer is mainly used for producing rubber tires. It usually consists of two diagonally placed rollers. This structure makes the inclined mixer more uniform when mixing rubber. In addition, the mixing chamber of the inclined mixer is smaller, which can better control the degree of rubber mixing. This makes it more suitable for producing high-quality rubber products.
The opening mill is an indispensable part of the rubber processing process. It is widely used in the production process of rubber products, such as rubber tires, rubber pipes, rubber plates, rubber pads, etc. In addition, refiners are also used in the process of rubber recycling and reuse to reduce environmental pollution and resource waste.
