Monobloc VI Units provide economic solutions

AEV Iberica have manufactured the first of a range of Monobloc Vacuum impregnation Units. The standard range of plants, allow for a cost effective Vacuum impregnation solution, where the storage tank for the resin is integrated into the unit along with the impregnation vessel.

The plant has been sold to a Singaporean Customer, Asia Electric, who manufacture a range of larger power transformers. The resin selected was DAP resin which allows low temperature cure times and fast processing. With the plant, the customer is able to speed up production by 3 fold, purely by the ability to impregnate, drain and cure quickly. The VI units are available in a range of standard sizes from 500mm to 1000mm wide with impregnation depths possible of between 400mm and 650mm. The lead time on the units are short, with the ability to deliver a Total Solution to the customer, with the resin along side the tank at time of delivery.

As a 'home' market, it is an important exhibition for the company as a whole. Richard Tweddle, AEV Ltd Operations Director, reported that the exhibition, although down on numbers, was consistent in quality of visitors. His visit to Malaysia was to coincide with the exhibition, along with a review of plant activity at the AEV ASIA site.

He managed to oversee the successful completion of an order for the distributor in Egypt, along with preparing the installation of a Vacuum Dispersion mixer to be used in the manufacture of filled Epoxy and PU compounds. These products were the focus of the exhibition, and with the ability soon to be able to produce such products in Malaysia, hope for rapid growth in this product area is key.
