PLATE TECHNOLOGY

Even for separator plates time does not stand still

The life time of separator plates for multilayer production is not only affected by high stresses during the pressing process Separator plates are also prone to get damaged by handling and cleaning processes leading to premature repair expenditures and defects.

C.A.PICARD International, an established supplier of high quality press tools and separator plates for multilayer production has invested considerable resources into the development of a suitable material for multilayer separator plates. During this development market requirements as well as technical and process related demands have been taken into account for both plate and multilayer manufacturing.

C.A.PICARD separator plates

  • Trouble-free production is guaranteed due to no distortion caused by variations in temperature
  • Refurbishing is available quickly and at favourable costs
  • High heat conductivity (less input of energy and time)
  • Favourable TEC (thermal expansion coefficient)
  • High corrosion resistance
  • High hardness (50 HRC = longer life time)
  • Usable for all types of cleaning / brushing machines
