In the industrial sector, and in particular in the production lines, components and technical articles in rubber are often used, as it is a resistant, versatile and malleable material, which lends itself to numerous contexts and which guarantees resistance, safety and long life. time.
The technical items produced by Warca Rulli are mainly intended for the food industry, as well as various other industrial and production areas in which machines are fitted with conveyor belts, rollers, wheels, sleeves and other accessories.
Rubber is a favorite material as it offers extreme tensile and pressure resistance, absorbs vibrations well and is suitable for many applications. The rubber rollers, in particular, are suitable for numerous occasions of use in the industrial field, thanks to the qualities of resistance, reliability and durability.
The rubber rollers are to be considered high quality accessories even if, obviously, they must correspond to precise production standards, both as regards the material and the processing techniques. In addition to using the right compound, the rubber rollers must resist well to temperature changes and high heat, chemicals and wear. The choice of compound therefore depends on the destination context: in fact, rubber rollers often come into contact with acids, oils, petroleum derivatives and subjected to more or less high temperatures.
This versatility represents one of the greatest qualities of rubber rollers, which can be designed, produced and customized to meet any specific need.
The use of rubber rollers in the food industry
In the food industry sector, the use of rubber rollers essentially refers to the transport of semi-finished products, to the packaging of finished products and to some stages of processing: a typical example is pasta, which is transported on sliding belts for create the different formats, and baked products, which are cut, decorated and subjected to various other processes.
The rubber rollers intended for this type of use must be made of a rubber compound certified for contact with food, which guarantees maximum safety and compliance with the relevant legislation.
Other sectors of use for rubber rollers and technical rubber items
Rubber rollers, rubber wheels, conveyor belts in rubber or silicone compounds and technical articles in polyurethane material are used in numerous production sectors, among which, in addition to the food industry, the context of agriculture, paper converting, metallurgy stands out. , the wood industry, the textile and leather goods sector, typography and printing.
This heterogeneity of rubber accessories is specifically due to the characteristics of the rubber compound itself, which can be modified and calibrated in such a way as to perfectly match the requirements of the destination.
The characteristics of rubber and alternative materials
As we have seen, rubber corresponds to high resistance and durability qualities, however there are some alternative materials, such as silicone compounds and polyurethane. Silicone is ideal for its lightness and ductility, while polyurethane has the typical characteristics of plastic and rubber and resists well in contact with combustible oils.
