Air Separation Plant for Rubber & Plastics

Rubber and plastic industry requires extensive use of nitrogen. We are here to provide the industry high quality liquid nitrogen plants so they have the option of onsite generation of nitrogen and their processes keep working uninterrupted. We have offer comprehensive industrial gas plant solutions to ensure seamless production of nitrogen. Our systems will undeniably make your processes efficient, safe and profitable.  We have state-of-the-art facilities at our factory in New Delhi (India) with top-notch expertise in cryogenics. Our engineers are always working on ways to innovate and lower costs, improved efficiency and durability of our nitrogen gas plants. Once you provide us with your requirements, we will run them on production scale at our facility and accordingly customize the cryogenic process to meet your requirements. Liquid nitrogen is used in grinding and deflashing systems to tire curing.

Use of liquid nitrogen in rubber hose manufacturing

Liquid nitrogen provides an efficient way for higher production rates due to faster and precision cooling.  It is imperative that the rubber hose is at the optimum temperature before it can be braided and manufactured. However, caution must be taken as too much cooling can damage or make the rubber brittle. On the other hand,   too little cooling will result in poor braiding, cutting, deformation and kinking besides causing numerous other issues. Liquid nitrogen will assist in controlling the hose temperature in the braiding process.

Salient features of using our cryogenic nitrogen plants

  • Avail quicker cooling with improved production rates
  • Easily customizable and can be integrated into your process
  • High quality rubber hose with improved efficiency
  • Lower operating costs
  • Automated control system allows to maintain the desired temperature

Improved cryogenic deflashing

With use of liquid nitrogen you can improve the efficiency of cryogenic efficiency. Delashing with liquid nitrogen will have enhanced efficiency in the making seals, gaskets, O-rings and other parts. Apart from enhancing deflashing quality, LN2 will help in cutting operating costs.

  • Get enhanced quality and less product waste
  • Optimum output
  • Better and efficient control on temperature
  • Shortened process cycle times
  • Lesser hand trim requirements

Cryogenic Material Separation

It is an efficient process delivering cleaner components. Numerous parts made from a polymer and a metal including vibration isolators, oil well seals, metal tracks, electrical cables and many other products comprise of materials that can be useful if recovered and recycled. Technologies like pyrolysis, chemical separation and incineration is expensive besides being contributing to environmental pollution. And, the techniques might even not obtain the highest value from the material.

How cryogenic material works

The process uses liquid nitrogen to cool component parts to cryogenic temperature. As a result of extremely low temperatures, the polymer part shrinks at a faster rate than the metal part of the component because of the difference in their thermal expansion coefficients. The differential contraction causes enough pressure to bond between the polymer and the metal. The separation process can generate a stream clean metal ad a stream polymers free from metals. This results in efficient recovery and recycling.

Benefits of Cryogenic Material Separation

Recycling industry faces a tough challenge in recovering materials from composite parts where metal and plastic are bonded together. Liquid nitrogen can effectively used to cool the parts to cryogenic temperatures allowing for their separation making it easier to collect individual components that can be recovered and recycled. Our cryogenic liquid nitrogen plant will help you generate uninterrupted supply of LN2 that will result in more efficient material separation than using techniques that are expensive and environmentally not good enough.

Inerting and Blanketing

Nitrogen is very useful in improving many processes for manufacturing of rubber and plastics. Use of nitrogen is necessary for inerting, blanketing or purging while working with flammable or toxic materials. It is also essential while working through fire and explosion hazards like combustible dust. LN2 is also useful in improving product quality in sensitive materials.

Inert gases like nitrogen are characterized by their low reactivity as they do not react with most materials. They are effective in preserving product quality during production, storage, transportation and final packaging in the rubber and plastics industry. Nitrogen blanketing system (continuous purge, pressure control, or concentration control) offers the best solution for preventing fires, explosion, or degradation of products during their production, storage, and transport.

Advantages of blanketing systems with nitrogen

It does not matter whether you are blanketing a tank, process or hazard like combustible dust, our cryogenic nitrogen plant will help you generate constant nitrogen for the nitrogen blanketing system.

  • Avail continuous purge blanketing with continuous flow of nitrogen and maintain safe oxygen concentrations
  • Pressure control blanketing can reduce use of nitrogen unlike continuous purging
  • ​Concentration control blanketing monitors the flow of nitrogen into the headspace of the tank resulting in reduction in the use of the gas
