Silicone including medical applications

VMI extruder gear pump systems are often used for silicone rubber extrusion applications such as straining, preforming or extrusion. As the viscosity of silicone rubber is quite low, the volumetric output control with a gear pump gives an excellent control over the quality of the extruded product, even when a high output pressure is required.

In medical applications special attention is required both on the product accuracy and on the cleanliness. In such cases specially designed systems for easy and quick cleaning are available. On these production systems the gear pump and the head are mounted on a separate cart. It can be released from the single screw extruder within 2 minutes and replaced by a second ´clean´ gear pump – head cart. While the line is back up and running full production, the used gear pump – head cart system can be completely disassembled for cleaning and re-assembled for the next run as required by production schedule.
