The extrusion of aluminium requires regular cleaning of the dies. Cleaning of the dies involves two steps. First, the dies are immersed in a heated solution of NaOH for a certain period of time. During this process, the aluminum that is present will dissolve and thus the die is cleaned.
For the construction of their new pre-treatment line (vertical SAT tunnel + immersion booths) a considerable flow rate of demineralised water was required as well as a large wastewater treatment. Both challenges were entirely in-house developed, produced and delivered by PCA.
When building a new line for the chemical pre-treatment and powder coating of aluminium profiles, the company Wilms (Meerhout) chose PCA to handle its water management. The objective was to eliminate any waste water.
Our customer is a developer of various household products, some of which are sold in plastic spray bottles. After the application of the shrink sleeves, these bottles need to be dried before they can be packaged in cardboard boxes.
Our customer C&D Foods is a large producer of pet food that was looking for a cost and energy efficient solution to remove the water drops on the packaging of their products (aluminium containers of 100 and 150g). For this application, we have designed and built the Pet Food Dryer.
Our customer is a worldwide market leader in adhesives. The bags of hot-melt adhesive that they produce in small and large format must be dried before they are packaged. A Ronair drying solution with two separate modules was designed for this application.
