Microwave Heating For Rubber

Microwave Heating For Rubber

At Kerone, we are helping many rubber processing giants with its highly advanced and sophisticated microwave based heating solutions for vulcanization processing. Vulcanization is process under which the natural rubber or rubber polymer is converted into more durable and mechanically strengthen rubber.

Microwave heating for rubber is a specialized and efficient method used in various industrial applications. Unlike traditional heating methods that rely on conduction and convection, Microwave heating for rubber harnesses electromagnetic waves to generate heat within the rubber material. When rubber is subjected to microwave radiation, the polar molecules within the rubber, such as water and other additives, rotate rapidly to align with the changing electric field of the microwaves.

This molecular movement generates friction and, in turn, heat. The advantage of Microwave heating for rubber lies in its ability to heat rubber uniformly and quickly, reducing processing time and energy consumption. This method is particularly useful in rubber curing processes, vulcanization, and molding applications, as it can be precisely controlled, resulting in consistent and reliable outcomes.

This process results in changing the cross-linking bonds within the natural rubber and making bonds more strong and non-sticky. Vulcanization curing is achieved by heating the natural rubber or rubber polymer at very high temperature along with sulphur or any other agent, such high level of temperature rise results into changing of bond within the rubber and resulting in non-sticky, maker it lesser deformable when heated, and removes the brittleness this helps rubber to achieve the desired level of elasticity.

For rubber manufacturers vulcanization is very critical process as it gives the strength and durability that is required for any rubber to get moulded and utilise for any application. Heating plays very critical role in the process of vulcanization hence selection of proper heating solution is very critical. Kerone is technology partner for many rubber manufacturers with our technically advanced heating systems like Microwave Heating For Rubber system powered by microwave and electromagnetics.

Continuous microwave vulcanization curing plants designed by Kerone is very cost effective solution for the processers of rubber as our Continuous microwave vulcanization curing systems accelerator the process of vulcanization by putting rubber under high temperature and pressure, this results in high quality processed rubber.

Keorne’s Microwave based vulcanization systems have proven their self-better than conventional hot air heating process. In the process of continuous vulcanization when curing package is placed within the microwave heaters then as compare to hot air heaters, microwave acts very quickly by directly targeting inner moisture content within the rubber and this helps in achieving quick results. Few of the other advantages those microwaves based continuous vulcanization curing oven offers over conventional continuous vulcanization curing oven are as follows:
  • Higher Rate Of Heat Transfer
  • Faster Processed Out
  • Better Quality Of Heating
  • Compounds Are Formed Properly
  • Microwave Heaters Are Compact As Compared To Conventional Heater
  • No Wastage Of Energy

Preheating of Microwave Heating For Rubber

Kerone, is an organization that had helped the rubber manufactures and processers with its high quality and technically advanced electromagnetic based heating solution powered by microwave, microwaves have capability that it penetrates with in the rubber material under process and energies the water molecules present within, this results in very high quality processing in shorter time. Our preheating solution provide great benefit to our clients as the high built quality and technical advancements make our solutions more efficient and economical.

Preheating is the process that is performed on rubbers before moulding and vulcanization, the preheated rubber has lower inner tension hence the process becomes more fluent, the time required for the processing will be reduced. Pre-heated rubber reduces the curing time and allows the rubber to flow easily and fill the mold cavity efficiently. Pre-heating reduces the vulcanization time by approximately 40%.

Kerone’s Microwave Heating For Rubber are designed to adhere to the client’s requirement. Microwave pre-heating systems can be designed for existing line or complete new line needs to setup Kerone will provide the utmost support and solution with economy of scale.

Feature of our Microwave pre-heaters:

  • Longer functional life
  • Low and easy maintenance
  • Dense construction
  • Quick and Easy installation
  • Precisely designed and engineered
  • Hassle-free functioning
  • Longer service life
  • Rugged construction
  • High durability
  • Energy and Cost efficient
  • Power saving
  • Efficient performance

Advantages of Microwave Heating For Rubber

  • Fast and uniform heating
  • Selective heating
  • Direct utilization of large-sized feedstocks
  • Treatment of non-homogeneous wastes
  • Waste reduction and material recovery
  • Better production quality
  • New materials and products
  • Energy efficiency

Extrusion Curing :

At Kerone, we are having over 48 years’ experience in helping various Microwave Heating For Rubber extrusion manufacturing with our extrusion curing system and microwave heating for rubber. Our range of products for extrusion curing make us one stop solution of all the need of extruder processing. At Kerone, we develop microwave based rubber extrusion curing system that helps in achieving the best result. As the rubbers and not good conductor of heat the conventional system fails to cure the rubber extrudes from outer surface, whereas ability of microwave to heat from within makes it ideal choice for the rubber extrusion. We also provide the complete extrusion line with varying screw sizes.

Values that kerone’s rubber extruders add are as below:
  • Increased flexibility
  • Lower processing time
  • Lesser processing steps
  • Higher quality processed output
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Less floor space
  • Safer work environment
KERONE is pioneer in application and implementation engineering with its vast experience and team of professionals. KERONE is devoted to serve the industry to optimize their operations both economically and environmentally with its specialized heating and drying solutions.
