Vuototecnica has specially designed the new DR 100 M 01/02 system for vacuum resin infusion moulding for the nautical sector.
Shipyards usually operate with ordinary vacuum pumps that suck onto the moulds without the interposition neither of a volume nor of a vacuum reducer to adjust and maintain the depression inside the suction circuit constant. The result is a variety of permanently operating pumps with the risk of overheating and the need for constant maintenance.
To solve these problems, Vuototecnica has developed this mobile system, which guarantees the best finishing in operations such as infusion or vacuum bagging, thereby ensuring maximum flexibility as required in shipyards.
The resin, which is contained in a special container, is vacuum-sucked by the Vuototecnica mobile system onto a mould until filling it.
Any excessive resin collected inside the sheet steel autoclave can be viewed through the transparent methacrylate cover, which can be manually removed for cleaning the inside of the autoclave once the process is completed.
The installed oil bath vacuum pumps (MV20A/MV40A) allow reaching a maximum vacuum level of 99.5% inside the autoclave therefore, the equipment can also be used as a degasifier.
The standard vacuum reducer installed on the equipment allows adjusting the vacuum level between minimum 20% and maximum 99.9%.
The accurate adjustment of the vacuum level is extremely important in vacuum bagging applications, where the pre-impregnated carbon fibres are pressed in the mould by means of the depression generated inside the bag itself and of the atmospheric pressure that acts evenly on it.
To ensure simple handling in the shipyard, this new vacuum resin infusion system is equipped with a power control panel and is trailer-mounted with a handle onto a solid structure made of steel profiles.
Furthermore, Vuototecnica has developed and created a range of accessories specific for the resin and composite fibre sector, such as: vacuum bagging valves; suction valves for resin infusion moulds; vacuum regulators; vacuum valves and solenoid valves; specific suction filters; vacuum hoses and manifolds.
Vacuum sealed packaging control: Vuototecnica offers two solutions
To test the sealing of bottles, jars, plastic or tin cans and, in general, for all hermetically sealed packaging, such as flow-pack, cellophane or PVC packages, Vuototecnica proposes ATP and ATS vacuum testing devices.
These devices are very simple to operate and allow you to detect even the smallest leaks of air from the packaging.
With ATP, the vacuum is generated in the transparent casing filled with water by a pneumatic multistage ejector. You can put the product inside the container, to locate the air release point. A pin pushes the package into the water.
In case of loss, air bubbles identify the weak point immediately. ATS device operation is intuitive, too.
As you can see in the video, you can put the product inside the plexiglas casing. By creating the vacuum inside the casing, the pressure differential that’s generated between the inside of the package and the volume of the depressurized casing causes the packaging to swell, thus exerting pressure upon the flow pack’s seals. A mini vacuum switch integrated within the ATS system let you to set the test’s vacuum level (based on the legal or regulatory requirements). The standard units are available in two models: the ATS 20, with a 21.5 litre casing and a VTS 10 M model pump, and the ATS 05, with a 5.5 litre casing and a VTS 4M model pump.
ATP and ATS test values are adjustable and can be automatically repeated so you don’t have to reset them every time.
On request, Vuototecnica realizes special versions of both products to meet your need.
Using vacuum technology for food conservation
Each type of food has its own distinct qualities. In order to preserve it the best way possible we need to get to know the foods and how various food groups can be matched together. Also, there are different cooking and heating methods that will affect the wholesomeness of food nutrients.
Some conservation methods can be applied by just about anyone; industrial production derives its preservation methods from the experience that has been accumulated throughout history, and it applies that experience to larger quantities. There are food conservation methods that have been passed down generation to generation and that can be re-evaluated now that we have new scientific and technological discoveries. One of the most utilized methods that guarantees correct and balanced food conservation is vacuum packing.
Vuototecnica supplies its clients with the very best technology for correct food conservation.
Vacuum seal test
To prevent unpleasant surprises when it comes to cellophane or PVC flow-pack food product packaging, test the welding seals using the ATP02 by Vuototecnica, a leader in vacuum technology.
Nothing gets past this easy to use and totally pneumatic testing device, especially the air that escapes packages with a defective closure and weld seal.
Vacuum generation, using a multi-stage pneumatic ejector inside the transparent container, allows for identifying the exact point of even the smallest air leak from the package immersed in water.
The defective weld is evidenced by the small bubbles leaking out from the welding.
The test values are adjustable and can be automatically repeated.
Upon request, Vuototecnica manufactures special versions to meet the specific needs of its customers.
