Direct Adhesives have added a new string to their bow and are now the UK Sales and Service partner for Timmer GmbH. Timmer pumps are well known for their quality engineering and innovative design features. The latest generation of pumps have digital heating systems with very precise temperature and pump rate control and users can even use a smartphone or tablet to control them for easier set up and use.
Anyone pumping adhesives, inks, oils or aqueous fluids will benefit from conditioning them to a consistent temperature. At a constant temperature, viscosity is controlled, meaning that your process will be much more reliable. A particularly good example is the Timmer IBC pump. Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC’s) can contain 1000 litres of material and if this gets cold during storage, it will take a very long time to acclimatise prior to production. The Timmer IBC pump heats the material as it pumps, so you can condition your product (such as an adhesive) as it is used, achieving consistent, reliable flow and performance.
Timmer pumps are most well known in the UK for its products that are used in the labelling industry. In breweries for example, high viscosity labelling adhesives are used and these perform at their best when heated. The heating reduces the viscosity, meaning that the adhesive flows much better on the machine application rollers and improves how cleanly he product runs, especially at high speed. Bottling halls in the brewery sector can be a pretty brutal place if your are a glue pump, so Timmer pumps are engineered to withstand an industrial environment where there is a lot of water around and they heat efficiently and perform reliably shift after shift.
The latest generation of Timmer pumps for the labelling industry, the D3 has NFC technology built in, so can communicate via an app to a smartphone or tablet. Data can be gathered regarding temperature, pump rate and other metrics. These features are useful, but most importantly, the unit is extremely robust and reliable, it quietly goes about its business with the utmost efficiency.
