Equipment for starch based glue production for corrugating machines (glue preparation for cardboards)

Its conception is based on common technologies for glue preparation in the system ”Steinhall”, ”No-carrier” or ”Minocar” w/wo viscosity measurement. The equipment is designed and delivered according to particular technological conditions on site and according to customer's specifications. Its delivery can include starch storage machinery, own equipment for glue preparation, dosing system for both powder and liquid borax, system of NaOH storage and dosing, storage tanks, delivery pumps and recirculation loops from the corrugating machine back to the storage tanks with pumps. As a part of optional accessories there is an external station available for other sorts of powder starch, so-called the ”Big-Bag” station including lifting and handling means, respectively a hopper for loading from paper bags. Starch conveying to the cooking tank is realised by means of a screw conveyer with electronic speed control through a frequency converter.

Equipment for production of glue "ready-mix" basis

This equipment is designed according to particular conditions, available with 1 or 2 independent lines for glue preparation with possible usage of 2 sorts of ”ready mix” and comprising 1 or 2 hoppers for loading of two diverse ”ready mixes”, a dispersing tank and a pumping system for delivery of finished glue into a storage tank.

Main parts of preparation line on "ready-mix" basis:

  • storage bunker for powder product (1 or 2 pc)
  • dosing screw with electronic speed control by frequency converter
  • automatic flap valves at dosing screw output protecting against penetration of moisture from dispersing tank

  • pneumatic transport pump
  • control loop of water dosing
  • electric switchboard with control system
  • mounting frame
Equipment parameters:
  • capacity of bunkers 2 m3
  • dispersing tank capacity 0.8 m3
  • storage tanks for final glue 1 m3  (can be changed according to specification)
  • batch volume 0.5 - 0.7 m3
  • discharging speed 60 - 220 l/min
Reconstructions of preparation lines from the other manufacturers

PAPCEL offers modifications and reconstructions of existing preparation lines according to customer's technological requirements as needed. We are ready to provide reconstruction of machinery or to deliver quite new control system respectively to carry out also other works upon agreement.
