Introducing the perfect rigid foam block production solution
We tailor our production plants for rigid foam according to your needs. After the foam block is produced and cured, it can easily be cut and formed to suit a wide range of applications, such as:
- Industrial thermal insulation
- Modeling and tooling applications
Low volume rigid foam production requirement – Discontinuous foam production equipment
We supply a range of bespoke discontinuous foam machines which can be tailored according to the customer’s chemical components and block sizes. These machines combine precision pumps and accurate flow meters with PLC Controls to deliver chemicals accurately into the plant’s chemical holding tanks. When in production, the chemicals are dispensed in a specific order into the mixing chamber and blended using a specially designed mixing impeller. Once sufficiently mixed, the chemical is dispensed into a box mold according to the required block shape. A flat top system is supplied with the mold to improve the profile of the block shape.
High volume rigid foam production requirements – Continuous foam production equipment
Our bespoke continuous foam machines with reinforced heavy-duty multi-conveyor systems are the perfect solution for this application. These plants include the latest flat-top equipment technology for the optimum rectangular flat-topped foam block shape to minimize raw chemical material waste. Here, the foaming conveyor is combined with precision chemical metering systems supported by mass flow meters and specially developed chemical mixing and nucleation technology to give superior foam quality with fine, uniform regular cell structure for improved thermal lambda value. Our industry-leading Omega 4.0 computer control systems fully manage and control the plant.
As optional additions, we offer chemical tank farm equipment, which can be integrated into the Omega 4.0 for a complete turnkey control system.
Flexibility & Efficiency
Our plants for producing rigid blocks in a continuous process have the option for low, partial, and full high-pressure mixing and metering technology, giving the ultimate flexibility in equipment design. This is combined with liquid laydown production to allow manufacturers to achieve a highly efficient raw material yield and excellent rigid foam quality, with uniform cell structure, minimum pinholes, and bubbles.
At Cannon Viking, we specialize in solutions for all types of complex fillers (i.e., glass fiber, PU ground powders, and others) and difficult-to-process blowing agents (flammable pentanes). We work closely with chemical suppliers and customers to develop high-quality solutions for all rigid foam production types, including the latest generations of safety equipment.
