BS EN 1417:2014 Safety Standard for Rubber Mills – February 2016

BS EN 1417:2014 Safety Standard for Rubber Mills – February 2016

In keeping with their position at the forefront of rubber compounding, Clwyd Compounders Ltd. have engineered a solution to comply with the new standards in safety, BS EN 1417:2014 . It has taken over a year to the develop a mechanism that is effective in meeting the key features of this new standard, which are: If the safety bar is pressed, the mill rolls separate by 30mm within 3 seconds and automatic reversal of the rolls occurs within 2 seconds of the mill stopping through an angle of 60ᵒ. In the event that power to the mill fails the rolls automatically stop.

In addition to the safety benefits the new design utilises a variable speed drive which enables greater control when mixing and saves power.

 This demonstrates Clwyd’s commitment to leading the compounding industry in all areas; quality, service, technical support and health & safety. This will be rolled out across all mills in the factory over the next two years. Clwyd would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those involved in engineering the solution.
