Customer's Needs and Problems
Mold-release agent is applied as a mist from a spray gun during the tire production process.
An air-driven pump is used to supply the liquid, which poses the following problems.
- The flow rate of the air-driven pump varies due to pressure fluctuation on the discharge side, so an excessive amount of liquid may be converted into mist.
- Mold-release agent is expensive, so we want to eliminate its waste and thereby reduce costs.
The pump was replaced with a Smoothflow Pump.
- A constant amount can be discharged with almost no influence from pressure fluctuations, which made it possible to convert the appropriate amount into spray at all times.
- This made it possible to reduce the amount of expensive mold-release agent that is used.
