Think rubber mixing room, and the image that conjures up in your mind is that of a “black room“!
Factories that have open two roll mill mixing have carbon black particles all over the place, lending credibility and authenticity to “black mixing rooms”. Dust collection system reduces this to a large extent.
When an internal Banbury mixer or Intermix mixers with semi/automatic carbon feeding, filler feeding, oil dosing and effective dust collection systems are deployed, they present a safer and cleaner environment. Maintenance is easier and mixing rooms need not be “black” any longer.
A representative image of a mixing room is as below.
Depending on the technology and layout adopted, the set-up could vary. And if you are curious to visualize how the complete system works, here is a video of a rubber mixing line.
Newer and most state-of-the-art rubber mixing and compounding factories invest in automated rubber mixing rooms to reduce reliance on labour, increase efficiency and production.
