At its corporate headquarters in Neukirchen-Vluyn (Germany) SCHWING offers the “SCHWING LAB+TECH CENTER” – a complete lab and processing pilot facility for specific tests and trial series with unique tool components and/or materials – to the development engineers and process technicians of its customers.
Customer-specific Cleaning Tests
Electrically or gas-heated (vacuum) pyrolysis and fluidized bed systems with application temperatures up to 530 °C are available for trials of thermal cleaning of metal parts. In addition, the complete range of accessories such as tool-specific loading baskets, afterburner systems, after-treatment equipment (e.g. ultrasound) and devices for quality testing can be extensively examined and tested here.
Customers and interested parties are invited to bring their own parts and tools, contaminated with polymer, along. “Their” optimal cleaning method is determined with the help of our engineers and process technicians.
Testing in Fluidized Bed Technology
In the area of fluidized bed process technology SCHWING has various lab equipment units and high-temperature DIP and scale-up reactors with a volume up to 120 liters available for fluidization tests and pilot tests up to 1100 °C.
Several fluidized bed systems are also available for targeted heating, heat treatment and quenching tests.
The unique temperature uniformity of the SCHWING fluidized bed systems facilitates, in addition, an extremely precise and exact to reproduce high-temperature application, for example, for the calibration of temperature sensors and thermal instruments (+/- 0.15 °C).
