In our daily life we use plastics and polymers in many different forms. It is used as a disposable product for packaging or as a long-lasting component in the automotive industry, in sports equipment and toys.
Plastics are tailor-made for the application, depending on the properties desired. In this way, properties such as hardness, mold ability (or formability), elasticity, tensile strength, temperature, radiation and heat resistance can be adjusted as well as the chemical and physical resistance can be adapted to the desired function.
To create the plastic properties as desired, additives are applied in the manufacturing process. These additives are applied by using flow meters or flow meters combined with a pump.
Typical additives in the plastics industry are antistatic agents, dyes, flame retardants, fillers, lubricants, colourants, stabilizers and plasticizers. Many of these additives are liquid. Precise dosing of these additives, gives you the opportunity for a more efficient manufacturing process and minimization of unnecessary waste.
Additives are often added in a traditional way by using needle valves. Using needle valves is inexpensive, but always has a risk on malfunction. Because of pressure- and temperature fluctuations which can occur in the process. For some additives, like plasticizers, a precise dosing of additives is very important as these are directly absorbed by human beings or accumulate in the food chain.
