SPX FLOW, Inc., a provider of process solutions for industrial markets, is providing its mixing technology to Henkel, a global manufacturer and provider of adhesives, sealants, and functional coatings.
Henkel will use an SPX FLOW mixing tank solution, with a Stelzer agitator, in the thermoplastic glue production — called pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA).
SPX FLOW supply includes heavy-duty jacketed valves, pumps, and fittings and an automation system with programmable logic controller, human-machine interface, and process software for recipe handling. This includes onsite installation.
This marks the sixth production line SPX FLOW will provide to the Henkel plant (this one in Környe, Hungary)
“We [have been] successfully operating with turnkey-solutions from SPX FLOW for many years,” said László Fehér, Maintenance and engineering manager with Henkel. “Thanks to our close relationship and our good experiences with the reliability and performance of the products and customer service, we decided to install the SPX FLOW technology for the new production line, as well.”
Henkel operates globally with a well-balanced and diversified portfolio. The company holds top positions with its three business units in both industrial and consumer businesses thanks to strong brands, innovations and technologies. Henkel Adhesive Technologies is the global provider in the adhesives market across all industry segments worldwide.
Stelzer is celebrating its 75th anniversary after establishing deep roots in the chemical and dairy industries. It specializes in developing precisely dimensioned mixing solutions to meet challenging hygiene requirements in accordance with international standards. This provides the basis for the food and pharmaceutical solutions and a special expertise in cleaning and polishing.
