Dispensing system for high-viscosity materials

Beckwood Press Co.

Beckwood Press Co. (St. Louis, Mo.), after more than a year of development work, has introduced a new system for the dispensing of ultra-high viscosity polymers. Based on the company’s existing Accu-Flex press technology, the new system uses two independent dispensing cylinders that are powered and controlled for precise volume displacement by controlling the plunger or piston rate. Cycle parameters allow the operator to establish a cumulative volume payout based on a fixed ratio between the two dispensing cylinders. The system was designed to dispense highly abrasive materials and includes electric heating to 250°F.
