New Era is pleased to announce to completion of a successful Factory Acceptance Test for a versatile CE Compliant Membrane Casting Pilot/Production Testing line. The line features a compact design with the ability to cast 41” wide full width non-woven material and incorporates the ability to allow our customer to test new products as well as provide production full width testing to eliminate smaller scale lab testing which in some cases may not dictate actual production width performance.
The line features, a single position guided unwind, slot die coater with compact design enclosure system, solution delivery system with exhausted enclosure, insulated quench tank with provisions for heating or chilling of the fluid with the provided recirculation system provided by New Era. The rinse system is of removable rack design for ease of maintenance and consists of 3 insulated tanks that are heated via recirculation systems designed specifically to the customer’s needs by New Era. Winding is achieved by the use of a single position guided winder complete with pack and gap winding capabilities as well as stainless steel drip pans to catch any fluids during the winding process.
The drive and control system includes Allen Bradley components designed by New Era to effectively and efficiently transport the web, whilst maintaining excellent tension control throughout the process. HMI’s are provided for operator interface and ease of operation. With safety in mind, all moving components are guarded and safety devices are located where necessary to ensure operator safety.
New Era will be exhibiting its water filtration media line capabilities at the upcoming Aquatech show in Amsterdam. Please stop by and see us in booth #07.213.
