Sample mounting press TVL

Sample mounting press TVL is a unique mini test press used for rapid and inexpensive visual detection of unwanted contaminants in purchased or processed plastic regrinds and granules, crushed plastics, plastic crumbs etc.

The equipment consists of three modules:

  1. Module number one is equipped with a touch screen display, so that the required temperature (within the range from 0 to 400 °C) can be easily set. The internal sensors automatically maintain the temperature at the set value.
  2. Module number two has an integrated press unit (capable of exerting pressure of up to 10 bar) consisting of two heated (smoothly ground) steel plates. After achieving the required temperature (set on the module number one display), the tested material is poured between the hot pressing plates. By rotating the press wheel the tested material is pressed into a thin disk (whose thickness is 0.5 mm ± 0.1 mm). That is why the sample produced in this way is sometimes aptly called “a pancake”.
  3. Module number three also consists of two smoothly ground plates. However, in this module they are equipped with a cooling circuit. After passing through the press of the module number two, the plastic pancake is inserted between these cooling steel plates, where the plastic sample is quickly cooled down by circulating water. The internal threads allow an external water circuit to be connected to the module number three.

All three modules are independent and therefore it is possible to purchase only e. g. the number one and two modules (without the number three, for cooling). However, in the absence of the number three module, the time needed for cooling the plastic sample considerably increases.

The sample mounting press TVL is a very interesting alternative to the expensive melt point testers. Especially small and medium-sized companies often cannot afford to buy such costly testing equipment. However, processing of uninspected plastics or dealing with such materials may harm expensive machine equipment, damage the company's reputation and cause serious financial losses.

Extra value added

Magnetic force (induction) generated by the extremely strong permanent magnets from rare earth ores does not let through any unwanted ferromagnetic impurities – and that is why the application options of our products are nearly unlimited (they find their use in chemical, plastic, automotive, building and pharmaceutical industries, food processing, mining etc.).

Our company goal is not only to manufacture and deliver a product, but above all to find and offer an exact solution satisfying the requirements and needs of just YOUR company. In these days of rapid changes in technology it is very difficult to keep up with the latest trends even in the field of your own activity, not to mention other industrial or foreign branches. And that is why we offer you our technical support based on our know-how and our experience. We hope that you - as well as our present clients - will also appreciate our assistance with solving problems regarding the separation of magnetic particles from your products, that we will help to protect your expensive machinery and that our solutions will make your production process even more fluent. If you are looking for a solution of a problem with separation or detection of ferromagnetic impurities in your goods, do not hesitate to contact us. We can help you.

Free magnet audit

Free magnet audit is an exceptional service thatSollau_serviceman.jpg

  • checks the function of the magnetic separator (if the tramp metal is effectively trapped)
  • examines if the magnetic separator fulfils its potential and meets application requirements
  • evaluates the effective pull, the status, the location and the cleanness of the applied magnets

During the audit, we do not only inspect your magnetic equipment, but we also

  • provide training on care and maintenance of magnetic separators
  • suggest the measures to be taken in order to improve the operating efficiency of the magnetic separation related to your products and materials
  • identify the key areas in your company where the application of magnetic separators could enhance the operating performance, reduce operating costs, purify the product or protect processing equipment from metal damages

Audits are conducted by SOLLAU specialists that - in co-operation with the client - develop an audit plan and determine priorities. During the audit, the auditor physically inspects and measures the effective strength of the magnetic separator. He also photographs and documents the state of the device. After the check is completed, the auditor issues a detailed report including the results of the effective strength findings. The inspection results are also important references for internal quality assurance and help analyse biological, chemical and physical hazards (HAACP) as well as ensure high quality production (QA).
