Duplex Vacuum Plodder consist of two plodders mounted in tandem generally in line between them and, on request, at ‘ L’ arrangement
The preliminary stage is a refiner plodder, complete with drilled plate, pelletizing knife and refining screen
Soap pellets refined by the preliminary stage of the plodder are compacted and extruded in a continuous bar by the final stage
The connection between preliminary stage and final stage is a vacuum chamber, heated by means of electrical heaters immersed in diathermic oil
The level switch placed inside the vacuum chamber guarantees a correct soap pellets in feed to the final stage
A continuous soap bar is extruded through a nose cone, heated by means of electrical heaters immersed in diathermic oil. Final temperature is regulated by a thermostat
All parts in contact with soap are manufactured in AISI 304 stainless steel
Electrical control panel completed with push-buttons and inverters is fitted in a frame that supports stairs and working platform
Parallel axes reducer manufactured by ‘Rossi’ gearboxes. Load capacity verified according to UNI, DIN, AFNOR, AGMA e ISO
Soaptec proposes single worm and tangential twin-worm duplex vacuum plodders. The lenght / diameter ratio cylinder is four
Plodders can be assembled with right or left side orientation for the operator
Standard water circuit, with solenoid valve and water temperature indicator at cylinder outlet. On request, it is possible to supply with thermoregulation systems
Main motor is driven by an inverter. The brand of the motor and inverter can be chosen by the
customer
Cylinder provided with jacket and insulation for cooling, manufactured in AISI 304 stainless steel
Screws are built out from casting, then polished and mechanically finished. Generally made of aluminium alloy G Alsi9, on request also in NI-Resist or Aisi 304
Final stage extrusion group with heated conical head, die plate and die plate holder. Conical head fitted on hinge-pin or on castors. On request, hydraulical locking instead of traditional rods
Standard water circuit with solenoid valve and water temperature indicator at cylinder outlet. On request, it is possible to supply with thermoregulation systems

Depending on the type of soap and the production you are planning to make, Soaptec has different Plodder proposals
