JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Is it possible to find a faster, easier and more efficient way to handle sensitive and high-viscous liquids, pastes and semi-solid products? From this autumn the answer is an emphatic yes: the recently launched PowerBagPress combined with Fluid-Bag’s flexible IBCs bring considerable savings, simplifies daily handling and application of difficult products such as adhesive resins and epoxy bonding pastes.
Up to now, discharging efficiency, material residue and material flow rate has been a real issue for many companies. In addition to the risk of contamination, air bubbles and large variations in mixing ratios have resulted in uncertainty of application and life-expectancy of the end-product.
These issues have lead to the development of the PowerBagPress: Fluid-Bag Ltd. has created an entirely new concept with this powerful discharge unit. The automated push-of-a-button PowerBagPress is used together with Fluid-Bag’s flexible IBC systems (900 and 1000 litres). During discharge the flexible container is rolled up and squeezed flat, much like a tube of toothpaste.
One of the main benefits is that material residue in the containers can be down to 0.5%. To date no other container system can offer the same level of efficiency in discharging. The PowerBagPress was specifically developed to reach a material flow well above 35 kg/min – in the first real life implementation the results with a solid adhesive resin reached as high as 50 kg/min, so the possibilities to increase application speed are evident, even with fewer operators. The correct flow and mixing of 2 component materials in the application process guarantees the best durability in bonding and improves productivity. Risky container changes during material application can also be avoided.
This new solution enables both suppliers and consumers to resolve many issues – it enables safe material supply from the material producer, as well as efficient and risk-free material application for the end-user in fields such as wind turbine blade manufacturing, sandwich constructions and in the composite and aerospace industries.
Fluid-Bag Ltd is a Finnish company headquartered in Jakobstad Finland, with a subsidiary in Chonburi, Thailand and an extensive network of distributors and representatives worldwide.
Fluid-Bag’s sealed container system suits the most demanding products, avoiding the risk of air, particle or moisture contamination – essential factors when working with sensitive and reactive products. Two options are available: Fluid-Bag FLEXI (one-way) with a wooden pallet and Fluid-Bag MULTI (multi-trip) with a steel pallet.
Fluid-Bag’s containers are successfully used by many global key-players. Within the Reactive Chemicals segment, Fluid-Bag containers are used for adhesive resins, epoxy bonding paste, glues, sealants, coatings, paints and in the automotive industry.
