Tire Production

Process Description

In the tire production process, it is important to meet the high demands on the tire while simultaneously optimizing the complex process. A very important production step is vulcanization. Conventional methods, e.g. the steam system, have some disadvantages. Process parameters, such as pressure and temperature, cannot be set independently of one another in this process, which has a negative impact on the quality of the tire. The additional use of nitrogen provides a reliable solution here.

Gas application

In the case of nitrogen-steam systems, the process parameters can be set individually. The steam provides the heat, and the nitrogen stabilizes the pressure to the desired level. As a result, nitrogen-steam systems have a shorter cycle time. In addition, the production rates increase while at the same time product quality improves, since local overheating of the steam is avoided. This protects the bladder and the rubber.
