SilcoStar 1950 Overview

The SilcoStar 1950 has been produced to meter mix and dispense the high viscosity Liquid Silicone Rubbers used in the manufacture of high voltage insulators found in the electrical transmission industry.

The 1950 system is connected to a large mould tool and clamp system and the materials metered in under a pre written fill programme to minimise the entrapment of air or the creation of voids. Once the mould is full the system can then pressurise the mould to ensure all cavities are filled.

The system uses large displacement metering pumps driven by servo hydraulic drive system receiving process information from bespoke software loaded into the microprocessor based control system.

The system can be fitted with refillable containers and transfer pumps to give large process capacity before refilling.
