Filtering Plastisols at Henkel Teroson
Henkel Teroson streamline filtration process
Five totally enclosed self-cleaning filters from Russell Finex have replaced the use of vibratory sieves for the filtration of plastisols at the St Neots, Cambridgeshire factory of Henkel Teroson UK. The changeover was made to facilitate a switch from drums to intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) for transportation of the plastisols, which are used in automotive factories for undersealing car bodies.
Besides virtually eliminating the need for mesh cleaning, the new filters provide inline operation, which Henkel Teroson regarded as a key requirement for the efficient filling of IBCs. Their function is to remove any oversize particles which would be likely to interfere with the spraying of the plastisols in users’ factories. Specially designed to meet the need for high volume continuous production, the filters feature an electrically or air-operated wiper blade which keeps the microscreen clear of oversize solids, thus ensuring unrestricted liquid flow. The oversize gravitates towards a sump, which incorporates a solids discharge valve.
