Optimization of Mixing Equipment and Process for the Production of Silica Reinforced Compounds
|Date Published||September 22, 2004|
The introduction and advance of the ‘green tire’ based on the silica technology makes new demands on the side of the mixing equipment. The European research project SATPRO aims for the development of a silanization reactor, adapting the concept of an internal mixer to the requirements of this reactive mixing. Within this paper various mixing parameters and constructive features contributing to an optimized silica mixing system will be analyzed.
