Successfully master the winding process

Materials in winding applications place varied demands on drives: Sometimes the issue is high speeds, sometimes precision and in other applications, the challenge of a large mass. The wide spectrum of materials covers raw paper with a width of up to ten meters over a thin film, to carbon fibre threads with low elasticity and high tensile resistance.

Paper webs, for example, are rolled with a diameter of around two metres at high speeds of up to 2,000 m/min. Films are sensitive materials which must be wound or unwound extremely precisely, and the winding of metals adds the issue of heavy masses which influence the winding process. One range of drives which embody the required versatility is found in the air motors from DEPRAG SCHULZ GMBH u. CO.

The vane motor works according to a simple principle. The rotor turning in an eccentric cylinder is set into motion. Centrifugal force presses the vanes against the rotor wall and working chambers are built. In these working chambers the compressed air expands, pressure energy is converted into kinetic energy and the rotor turns.

Typical to pneumatic motors is the automatic adjustment of speed when there is a load variation. At idle speed, the air motor works with a complete removal of load. If there is a low load, meaning a low torque on the motor spindle, the working speed is close to the idle speed. The working speed lessens as soon as the torque increases. At 50 % of the idle speed, the air motor reaches maximum power. In this range it is particularly energy efficient.

In comparison with electric motors, the air motors have a high starting torque and can be loaded or even overloaded to standstill with no problems. After a reduction of load, the air motor continues running as normal. An additional advantage is the lessening energy requirements of air motors as the torque increases. In comparison, the electric motor uses the most electricity at maximum torque. Furthermore, compressed air is, in principle an unproblematic energy source: There are no electrical hazards and short circuiting is impossible.

Design to maximum torque

Above all, the required winding speed and the maximum torque are decisive for motor design. For the calculation of the maximum torque, the largest possible reel diameter is taken i.e. the reel in its fully wound state. The winding speed should also be determined at the fully wound state. However, when the reel is carrying less material, the reel diameter is smaller, and the motor automatically winds the material faster – the working speed adjusts to correspond with the load (the lower torque). If the motor is turning too quickly, the speed can be smoothly adjusted by altering the air volume, the operating pressure or a combination of the two.

Speed regulation using air volume

Through regulation of the air volume, speed can easily and flexibly by reduced. Depending on the application either supply or exhaust throttling can be used. Exhaust air throttling reduces the speed of the motor without a noticeable loss of power or reduction of the air motor’s torque. Exhaust air is kept back by a throttle valve, creating a backlog or counter-pressure and the speed is reduced.

If you also wish to reduce the power or torque of the motor, then supply air throttling would be recommended. If, for example, the winding application requires that continuous material be kept taut, then the motor must also continuously receive air.

Speed regulation using operating pressure

The technical data of DEPRAG air drives is based on an operating pressure of 6 bar. Every one of these motors can be operated between 4 and 6.3 bar as required in order to adjust the power needed for the corresponding application. If, for example, an air motor is too “strong” for the paper to be wound, the paper could tear during winding. In this case, a reduction of the operating pressure would be recommended. In combination with supply air throttling, the motor power can be reduced so that tearing is prevented. A reduction of the operating pressure by 1 bar effects a reduction of the torque by 17 %. If the motor is operated at 4 bar, the torque is reduced by 33 %.

In a winding application, an air motor which is operated at 4 bar can still be too strong for a reel which is emptying. In order to further take advantage of the torque range of the air motor, DEPRAG can equip the motor with spring-loaded vanes, so-called forced start vanes. Using these vanes with leg springs, it is even possible to operate the air motor with an operating pressure of less than 1 bar.

ATEX and food safety

The air motors of the BASIC LINE, ADVANCED LINE and POWER LINE series are ATEX conform and authorised for use in potentially explosive areas. Through the expansion of air, any frictional warmth generated is cooled and even under load there is no possibility of overheating the vane motor or igniting gases. The internal overpressure also prevents the penetration of dirt and dust.

Air motors need to withstand cleaning agents and steam for use in food preparation areas, e.g. for packaging machines. ADVANCED LINE motors have external parts made from stainless steel, are sealed and do not require additional housing. DEPRAG air motors can be run without lubrication, i.e. operated with unlubricated air. DEPRAG uses a food legislation compliant lubrication USDA-H1 grease for the planetary gears.

Wellmann Engineering präsentiert Pharma-Know-How auf Lounges 2019

Hygienisches und funktionales Anlagendesign im Messefokus: Wellmann Engineering präsentiert seine drei Leistungsbereiche Engineering, Automation und Service für die Pharmabranche auf der Lounges 2019 in Karlsruhe. Kernthema am Wellmann-Stand mit der Nummer 12.8 in der dm-Arena sind ortsgebundene Reinigungs-/ Sterilisierunganlagen (CIP / SIP). Die Lounges 2019 – Messe für Reinraum- und Pharmaprozesstechnik findet vom 5. bis 7. Februar statt.

„Die effektive Reinigung und Sterilisation aller produktberührender Flächen ist für die Prozesssicherheit einer pharmazeutischen Anlage essentiell“, sagt Stefan Eickel, Leiter Pharmatechnologie bei Wellmann. „Gleichzeitig gilt es, die Wirtschaftlichkeit der Anlage zu steigern.“ Abhängig von Equipment und Produkt müssten hierzu viele Punkte geklärt werden, um den optimalen Weg zu finden.

Anlagensicherheit gewährleisten, Effizienz steigern
CIP (cleaning in place) und SIP (sterilisation in place) beschreiben die ortsgebundene Reinigung und Sterilisierung/Sanitisierung verfahrenstechnischer Anlagen. Als fest installierte Einheiten erfordern sie im Betrieb keine oder nur geringe Montage- und Demontagearbeit. Die Reinigung umfasst das Entfernen von Rückständen und Ablagerungen durch ein intensives Spülen der Anlagenkomponenten und Leitungen. CIP-Anlagen werden zumeist vollautomatisch mit fest hinterlegten Reinigungsprogrammen und variabel einstellbaren Temperaturen und Konzentrationen betrieben. Durch ihren hohen Automatisierungsgrad erzielen sie eine schnellere Reinigung bei reduziertem Wasser- und Detergenzienverbrauch sowie minimalem Arbeitseinsatz. Hierzu muss das angeschlossene Equipment für die Inline-Reinigung geeignet sein. „Die Planung einer stationären Reinigungsanlage beginnt daher stets mit einer Analyse der zu reinigenden Anlagentechnik“, sagt Eickel. Hierzu benötigen sämtliche Behälter und große Filtergehäuse Reinigungsorgane, etwa in Form einer Sprühkugel, Schwalldüse oder eines Zielstrahlreinigers. Ein Riboflavintest zur Reinigungsvalidierung gibt Aufschluss darüber, ob alle Oberflächen erreicht werden. Weitere Voraussetzungen sind ein totraumarmes Design mit entleerbaren Tiefpunkten.

Beim SIP-Verfahren werden Mikroorganismen durch höhere Temperaturen mittels Heißwasser oder gesättigtem Reinstdampf abgetötet. Die sterilisierende Wirkung von Temperaturen bis zu 140°C wird durch ein umfassendes Monitoring der gemessenen Parameter dokumentiert. SIP wird häufig über dieselbe Installation gefahren, wie die CIP, die in der Regel als Reinigungsschritt der SIP vorausgeht.

Innopas SX from KHS gives bottlers greater flexibility in the pasteurization process

A high degree of microbiological safety: with the Innopas SX KHS GmbH provides a tunnel pasteurizer which with its modular design meets the growing demands of the beverage industry with its increasingly complex range of products and shorter market shelf lives. The systems supplier from Dortmund has also optimized spare part management for this flexible machine.

The beverage market is facing increasing levels of dynamic competition, with new flavors in new packaging formats hitting supermarket shelves at ever shorter intervals. Flexibility is thus becoming more of an issue when it comes to filling. The necessary pasteurization of filled and sealed beverage containers for longer shelf lives is a decisive factor here. The completely modular KHS Innopas SX tunnel pasteurizer for cans and glass and PET bottles fully satisfies these demands.

Dynamic adaptation to line behavior

The basic functions of the Innopas SX are initially identical to the tried-and-tested tunnel pasteurizer systems provided by KHS. The dynamic pasteurization unit or PU control system reacts variably to changes in conditions. If, for example, a fault occurs during the pasteurization process, the process temperatures are kept under control in the hot zones of the tunnel pasteurizer to ensure both maximum product safety and flavor stability. New features on the KHS Innopas SX include extended functions in the dynamic PU control system which result in greater flexibility and yield savings in energy and media. Much of this is attributable to the optional speed regulation function. The individual zone temperatures are automatically raised or lowered depending on the conveyor speed. “This allows the pasteurizer to dynamically adjust to match the line behavior within a range of 50 to 105% of the nominal capacity for most processes without making any drastic changes to the pasteurization units and maximum product temperature,” states Knut Soltau, product manager for Bottle Washers and Pasteurizers at KHS. This prevents stops and the corresponding consumption of media and at the same time has a positive impact on the behavior of the entire line.

With dynamic PU control from KHS the process temperatures are regulated within the hot zones of the tunnel pasteurizer to enable maximum product safety and flavor stability. With a new program for PU control the customer can independently adapt the pasteurization unit setpoint for a specific container type. Here, the full functionality of the PU control unit is maintained. “In this way subsequent product changes or new products can be easily made or introduced at any time,” says Soltau. “Bottlers can thus react quickly to changes on the market and product trends.”

Improved design

KHS has also made several improvements regarding the design of its Innopas SX, with maximum emphasis placed on easy operation. The tunnel pasteurizer is clearly structured and offers optimum access which chiefly simplifies the maintenance and cleaning of the system. For this reason parts of the process engineering, such as the heat exchangers and media supply, have been relocated on the machine as modules in order to further improve servicing and machine safety.

Spare part management for the KHS Innopas SX has also been optimized. The number of components the customer is required to keep in stock has been reduced while the delivery times for spare and wear parts have been shortened. As functions can also be simply retrofitted as an option, this boosts flexibility for the customer and ensures the future viability of filling lines at a low operating cost.

mycon presents the new dimension of industrial cleaning at the InnoTrans 2018 in Berlin

Visitors will find the mycon GmbH from 18th to 21st of September in Hall 7.2c, Booth 205. The inventor Thomas Alva Edison once said: “If there is a way to do something better: Find it!”.  This is precisely what mycon GmbH has done and is presenting the new dimension of industrial cleaning at the InnoTrans 2018: solutions for cleaning, stripping and coating for the railway technology sector.

mycon GmbH is a sister company of the service company Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH, active in the development, production and sale of new products and automation technologies. Many years of experience in the field of industrial cleaning and service led to several system developments and patents with some international validity.

The systems works fast, gently, with little waste and no production stoppage – this is how the use of the mycon products pays off in short period.

The rental service of mycon GmbH also offers the possibility to use the advantages of the mycon devices without high investment costs.

Also represented at the stand of mycon GmbH will be the two investment companies Puraclean GmbH (Switzerland) and the new investment company in France, which is being established, as well as Hubei Infinity Railway Technology Co., Ltd as a co-operation partner in China.

mycon GmbH will be presenting a large number of cleaning processes for railway technology at InnoTrans.

Cleaning of heat exchangers with JetMaster ensures the functionality of air conditioning / ventilation systems

JetMaster is the gentle cleaning system from mycon for intensive cleaning of sensitive fin surfaces of heat exchangers. JetMaster is also available in automated versions.

Depending on placement and environment heat exchangers, chillers and coolers can become contaminated very quickly. Industrial dust, calcification, pollen and other influences cause continuous deposits with negative effects on function and efficiency and, last but not least, on energy consumption.

The contamination of an air-cooled condenser or chiller forms an insulating layer, reducing energy efficiency and thereby increasing the cost of power, maintenance and service. In addition, the corrosion of the fins leads to a reduced operating time of devices.

Definitely for a sophisticated and material-friendly solution: JetMaster – the gentle but extremely intensive cleaning of heat exchangers by low pressure. JetMaster is the patented process of mycon GmbH for the intensive cleaning of sensitive lamella surfaces. JetMaster works gently and extremely powerful. High-performance nozzles brings compressed air and small quantities of water specially pretreated in the device at low pressure with supersonic speed. The gentle beam penetrates deeply into the devices without bending or damaging the fine fins. The contaminants are gently but effectively released from the surfaces by cavitation effect using discharged through the jet stream. Damage to the lamellar surfaces, as possible with the use of high pressure water cleaning, is completely eliminated if the JetMaster is used correctly.

Even sensitive surfaces such as soft coatings, graphite, glass, foils etc. can be thoroughly cleaned without damage.

JetMaster process gets support: SpeedMaster

The JetMaster system from mycon GmbH has been successfully used for years to clean lamellar heat exchangers and other sensitive surfaces, even in railway companies. Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH, sister company of mycon, has now developed another process for the cleaning of even viscous grease layers: SpeedMaster. The SpeedMaster process works just as gently as the JetMaster system. SpeedMaster can be used to clean bogies in railway areas, to clean the inside of tanks, but also to clean pipes, bars and profiles. The cleaning agent can usually be completely reusable after treatment. The release of the new process for all applications is scheduled for September 2018. A prototype system for the automated cleaning of bogies and wheelsets in the railway sector is in the works and can already be offered for the trade fair.

PowerMaster – gentle, powerful and low-waste cleaning

PowerMaster is a blast system that works with compressed air, small amounts of water and water-soluble abrasives without damaging surfaces. mycon also offers PowerMaster as a complete automated cleaning system.

The proven cleaning method is based on an environmentally friendly and water-soluble granulate, which is introduced into a compressed air jet stream. Shortly before exiting the jet nozzle, the granules are wetted with water to increase the kinetic energy. The granules do not affect the function of a downstream separator.

PowerMaster cleans, peels and removes powerful and low-waste. The system works cost-effectively in the low pressure range between 3 and 8 bar compressed air with a low water consumption. Use of the abrasives recommended by mycon, even polished stainless steel surfaces or light metal surfaces can be cleaned or removal without visual impairment of the metal surfaces. Foils, paints, varnishes or resins, greases, bituminous layers or lubricants agents can be removed gently, quickly and economically with PowerMaster. Also for cleaning plastic surfaces PowerMaster can be used with a lower air pressure value. PowerMaster can be equipped for cleaning large areas with special nozzles up to 160mm wide.

When removing minor soiling, PowerMaster can also be used with a combination device in the area of painted Surfaces.

IceMaster – Modern industrial cleaning with dry ice

IceMaster – Effective, cost-effective, infinitely automatable
Dry ice or dry snow produced from liquid CO2 directly fed in the blasting gun with a stream of compressed air and blasted onto the surfaces to be cleaned at high speed. The process allows cost-effective and unlimited automated cleaning.

The IceMaster process is patent protected
Dry ice blasting has been used successfully for a long time in numerous industrial sectors for cleaning purposes. However, high operating costs, complex infrastructure and a lack of automation capability meant that the process did not get beyond a market niche despite its good performance.

IceMaster revolutionizes dry ice blasting for industrial cleaning. Low operating costs, full automation capability, constant availability without re-ordering of dry ice pellets are only a few of many advantages. mycon also offers IceMaster in automated versions according to customer requirements.

If required, mycon can also supply complete workplaces and complete automation systems with sound-insulated solutions for the manual use of IceMaster.

One mycon special solution is the cleaning of electronic components with IceMaster without electrostatic charging.

Application advantages:

  • Minimized operating costs
  • Low compressed air requirement: from 1.00 cbm air volume – min. / 1 bar
  • No investment required, IceMaster is also available on a rental basis
  • Constant availability
  • Easy to use
  • Full automation capability

Here are some application examples from various industrial and task areas:

  • New: cleaning of electronic components, e.g. of controllers without electrostatic charge
  • Cleaning surfaces made of plastic or metal

Cleaning of railway bogies for the purpose of weld inspection

Coating through thin-film surfaces

The cleaning of special plant parts can be significantly simplified and accelerated by the previous application of a hydrophobic protective layer. Even flexible parts such as insulators can be coated. Advantage: Experiments have shown that in subsequent cleanings with the JetMaster system, the coating is not damaged.

FilterMaster reliably cleans even large diesel particulate filters and catalysts without separating the housing

Successful cleaning of particle filters from locomotives, ships, buses, trucks and more are possible with the FilterMaster cleaning systems of the company mycon and have been executed many times.

The patented filter cleaning systems FilterMaster for trucks and more and FilterMaster for cars and more represent a new form compared to the previous concepts in the cleaning range for DPF. For the cleaning of particle filters and catalysts, the mycon systems represent a quantum leap over conventional methods.

FilterMaster for trucks and more

For filters that are openly accessible at the front, certain carbon dioxide-compressed air mixtures as well as some other industrial gases are used. Specially designed jet nozzles are used to clean the metal and ceramic filter surfaces.

Each type of filter can be precisely controlled and processed with exact repetitive accuracy. The system works in a closed circuit. Adaptive flange rings enable the almost every type of filter. Even angular filters of older design can be cleaned easily. Depending on the type of filter, the entire filter surface is automatically controlled and almost completely cleaned from the original soot and ash content.

FilterMaster for cars and more

The patented FilterMaster for cars and more cleaning system is used to clean exhaust particulate filters whose filter surfaces are not completely accessible through housings. For cleaning with this system, no separation of the filter housing is necessary. Even difficult-to-access filters of any size, even with upstream baffles or similar flow deflections can be easily cleaned with this cleaning system. Thus, a weakening of the housing by welds or corrosion resulting from welding can be excluded from the beginning.

On request, a fully automated mycon filter cleaning system is available to the customer for the particle filter cleaning with regular filter cleaning. Like all mycon machines, these cleaning stations are available on a rental basis without any investment costs including installation / commissioning on site.
