Material Feed for Beginners

Neustadt/Donau, July 31, 2017: From adhesive bonding to dam and fill to the application of liquid seals: There are numerous applications in which extremely paste-like dispensing media are used. Due to their high viscosity, these media often pose a challenge for industrial production processes. In order to achieve optimal dispensing results and to prevent downtimes, custom system technology must be considered.

There is a new entry-level solution for the bubble-free feed of highly viscous and non-abrasive dispensing media: the A220 Basic by Scheugenpflug. It mainly excels through an easy operation as well as an attractive price-performance ratio. When it comes to process reliability, the compact system is in no way inferior to its big sister systems.

Controller facilitates maintenance and analysis tasks

The functions of the A220 Basic are purely oriented towards a stable and process reliable material feed. Docking the pump to the 20 liter standard container is handled manually via a two-hand circuit and can be monitored with a visual check via a pressure gauge. The patented vacuum follower plate guarantees a clean and bubble-free docking process. It is made of polypropylene (PP) and is disposed of along with the empty container after the feeding process, which prevents the introduction of residual material into the new drum. The integrated reciprocating pump provides a reliable and continuous material supply, as material is fed during both the upward and downward stroke.

The A220 Basic features a filling level control unit and an electro-pneumatic pressure control unit, the latter of which eliminates elaborate readjustments to the feeding pressure by the operator. Both control units contribute to the high process reliability of the new feeding system. The A220 Basic is operated via the proven Scheugenpflug SCP200 controller, which not only facilitates monitoring, maintenance and analysis tasks but also ensures an economical and fault-free feeding process.
