The CTW Latex Unit consists of following parts ;
- a buffer tank with steam heating
- a feeding pump
- washing heads
- a membrane pump
- a filter
- flow measurement
One of the most important challenges was to have as less as possible parts in contact with the product to avoid agglomeration of the latex etc. Therefore an external heating coil around the buffer tank was used. To avoid foaming, instead of circulating product by use of the pumps, a mixer is installed to have a homogeneous mixture and heating.
