piston pumps are unnecessarily oversized for core winding. Adhesives commonly used in this process contain solids that may damage the pump seals and reduce its lifespan resulting in increased machine downtime and complex maintenance tasks.
Diaphragm pumps however are an excellent alternative to piston pumps offering numerous benefits. Low-pressure pumps work with all kinds of adhesives with minimal wear and required less maintenance resulting in a more cost-effective option.
Valco Melton’s DD-1 diaphragm pump features a unique electronic-reversing mechanism which allows the pump shaft to creep slowly and avoids stroke stalling. The adhesive feed rate for a core winder extrusion line is so low that the pump strokes extremely slow. In consequence, our DD-1 pump is the best choice for a continuous core winding process with no unexpected machine stops.
Valco Melton offers the tissue manufacturing industry including core-winding and the others being tail tie, adhesive pick up for tissue machines, ply lamination, and tissue tack & reel (full sheet transfer system for tissue machines).
LIPTOAQUA is keeping its commitments with aquaculture industry. We have recently launched our latest development VITAL PLUS H.R to eliminate gaps in handling operations and face stress in aquaculture systems.

For countless years, the paper bag manufacturing machinery has been utilizing pneumatic hot melt dispensing equipment for patch handle attachment until the recent emergence of the all-electric technology. Valco Melton’s EcoStitch applicator incorporates an innovative gluing technology, applicable to handle patch formation and attachment, bottom paste and bottom patch reinforcement, and bag seam gluing.
The benefits that EcoStitch all-electric technology brings to bag manufacture are almost endless. By focusing on the client, all-electric systems improve the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) by reducing adhesive usage, downtime and consumable parts, giving bag producers a direct competitive advantage over their rivals.
Historically, manufacturers have used compressed air (pneumatic systems) because it was easily available and satisfied the original design criteria established by early hot melt systems. Nevertheless, these pneumatic systems have had several long-term issues including constant and costly parts replacement, diminishing solenoid performance and use dynamic seals which are at the heart of system performance inefficiency. Electric gear pumps and electric valves require almost 90% less seals and spare parts to run, when compared to pneumatic pumps and valves. By eliminating the number of moving parts, all-electric systems eliminate the chance of failure, caused by worn out or imperfect seals.
Further, it is in regards to adhesive consumption that sets EcoStitch apart from all other gluing methods. Its new glue dots pattern application, configurable by the customer for every product requirement, allows from 40 to 70% in adhesive savings. In most frequent cases, this guarantees complete payback in as little as 4 months
Bond strength is also benefited by a dot and gap pattern. In an adhesive bead pattern, only the bead ends provide a high bond. However, EcoStitch dots, while putting down less adhesive, provide more bonding surface area and more independent bonds with focused fiber penetration. Every dot flatten out 360-degrees with compression providing more bonding surface area while maintaining heat penetration. Valco Melton’s solution has passed each and every strength test developed by the most strict customers - an evidence of reliability.
Sustainability continues to be a key fact in package design and equipment design. As the packaging industry feels pressure to reduce its overall carbon footprint, all electric systems offer an attractive solution toward fulfilling these goals. In recognition of Valco Melton’s commitment with ecological values, EcoStitch technology has been nominated for the Sustainability Awards 2019 due its proved environmental benefits reducing adhesive usage.
One of the growing markets is the railway (glass heating, hot water tanks, floors, doors...), where materials must be fireproof under UNE-EN 45545-2 standards.
In terms of materials, these are chosen according to the temperature and the heating means, being able to use: silicone, kapton, fiberglass and others. All of them comply with CE, UL, CSA and VDE certifications.

WHAT ARE GALVANIC BATHS?
Galvanic baths involve covering the surface of an aggressive material or liquid with a continuous, adherent and metallic layer in which the conductor is immersed in an electrolyte. This layer is called electrolytic coating.
One of the main objectives of electrolytic coatings is to increase resistance to corrosion, surface hardness or wear resistance, among others.
MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF ELECTRICFOR IMMERSION UNITS FOR GALVANIC ENGINEERING
Electricfor's galvanic immersion units are made of highly corrosion-resistant materials including titanium, Incoloy®, Teflon®, pyrex and porcelain.
In addition, they all feature a hermetic resin head with an IP67 degree of protection whose main objective is to prevent steam from penetrating chemical and electrolytic baths.
For any further information about immersion electric heating elements for galvanic baths, please do not hesitate to contact Electricfor's sales department.
Electricfor manufactured 4 heaters with electric heating elements, and a 30.000W power capacity each, with the aim of keeping the bitumen heated in 20" containers for transport.
These containers have a capacity of 29,500 liters and, optionally, two combustion chambers at their ends. In them the aforementioned heaters have been installed to maintain the temperature of 150ºC. Each heater is 5.5 metres long and made entirely of stainless steel. They also have a thermal space that insulates the connections from temperature.
For greater protection against outdoor exposure, the junction box is manufactured with IP66 protection.

HOW USEFUL IS A GCP HEATER?
The primary function of a GCP heater is to heat any air or fluid. This project involves compressed air with an outlet temperature of 175 °C. With an output of 115 KW in two stages, the GCP heater is completely made of AISI316L stainless steel and internally insulated with a mineral blanket.
The control panel included is managed by a Siemens PLC, model Simatic S7, whose power is regulated by a thyristor.
Electricfor's team designated for this project has personally supervised the start-up of the heater at CIMO's facilities in Switzerland. CIMO is a joint venture between BASF and Sygenta, which produces cleaning products for polymers whose main use is in the automotive and agronomy sectors.
For further information about Electricfor air compressed heaters, do not hesitate to contact its sales department.
HIGHER HEAT DISSIPATION
In this case we are talking about aluminium casted heating elements that ease heat transmission and allow a higher load per cm², as they have a better heat dissipation. Optionally, these heating elements, which are specially designed for explosive environments and therefore ATEX-certified, can be equipped with cooling tubes symmetrically arranged inside the heating element to provide uniform cooling throughout the entire cast body.
Regarding their design options, the shapes can vary and be totally customized according to the needs of each project. The L-shaped designshown in the attached photo is normally used in square and rectangular extrusion moulds.
In addition, clamps can be designed with external fins for faster cooling.
Other common applications for ATEX heaters casted in aluminium are:
- Amine gasifiers.
- Plastic extruders.
- Sealing machines.
- Chemical processes.
