SLK Products: Textile Industry – First SLK 200 installed for Spin Finish

SLK Products: Textile Industry – First SLK 200 installed for Spin Finish


During the last week of November, a Spinlock technician visited our new client Manufactura de Fibras Sintéticas SA (MAFISSA – www.mafissa.com.ar) to install a brand new SLK 200 and train the client on the operation and calibration of the device. The installation is important as it opens a new application for the SLK 200, now commercially deployed for Spin Finish. A rapid nondestructive fat content analysis is crucial for optimizing quality and process control. Mafissa is a company that counts with the support of half a century of experience in the country, combining the production of synthetic yarns and fibers destined to the textile industry of the region.

R&D: Food Industry – Project successful FIT/FAT

R&D: Food Industry – Project successful FIT/FAT 

During November 2017, senior technical staff from the Client (a global snack industry giant) visited Spinlock’s HQ in Cordoba to evaluate the performance of the new inline NMR developed by Spinlock specifically for them. The test involved a week-long testing session and +500M data points were recollected during that period.

The testing session was a complete success for the Client, Spinlock and the inline NMR. The equipment was pushed to its limits to determine its largest deviation with pattern methods, and the adaptability to fit an industrial production line. The test was intensive and concluded with the acceptance from the client of the device and its clearance to ship it to the client’s plant in the United States.

At the end of the week, in conversations with the entire Spinlock team, the client’s responsible executive shared its perspective on the project and the importance and future of the technology within the client’s operations: “on our team, we are used to making progress in ratios of 10x in speed or accuracy. This device would allow our company to jump 100 times from our current analysis capabilities” permitting for the first time a complete online test of every sample on the production line.

Next steps include preparing the device for shipment to its final destination in the United States. Details of the project, unfortunately, remain confidential.

NMR Spectrometer SLK 200

NMR SPECTROMETER SLK 200

NMR SPECTROMETER SLK 200 – The most advanced Magnetic Resonance System for quality assurance and control. Accurate, reliable, friendly, automated.

Allows determining simultaneously and in just seconds

  • Oil
  • Moisture
  • Acidity
  • Protein
  • Fatty acids

NMR Spectrometer

The SLK-200 NMR Spectrometer has been designed to analyse the composition of seeds and oils. Through the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance technique, this equipment can detect the presence and concentration of Oil and Moisture in sunflower seeds and other oilseeds.

The main characteristics of this equipment are:
– Analysis Time around 4 seconds for Oil and Moisture, and less than 30 seconds for
Oleic Acid.
– The sample is not destroyed or altered when analyzed.
– Precision:
* Waste < 1 % for Oil and Moisture
* Repeatability < 0.15 % in the 95 % of the measurements for Oil and Moisture
* Waste < 3 % for Oleic Acid
* Repeatability < 0.8 % in the 95 % of the measurements for Oleic Acid.

 

Spinlock attended the 4th HOC

Spinlock attended the 4th High Oleic Oils International Congress that occurred from 5 to 6 September 2017 in Bucharest, Romania.

The HOC congress is turning known globally, becoming the meeting place for leaders in the HO value chain. More than 250 producers, traders and buyers have come from 40 different countries.
Why Romania? During the past 5 years, Romania experimented one of the fastest expansion of HO sunflower acreage, at 39% annual growth rate; becoming a leading country in Central Europe for HO sunflower trading, at crossroads between Asia and Europe.
Romania also experimented the cultivation of HOLL rapeseed.

SPINLOCK EVENTS (2017)

Events – Spinlock has participated in May of the Expo Oliva Jaén 2017, an event dedicated to the olive industry. Spinlock attended the event together with his representative in Spain, the company Tecnilab.
On the other hand, in September Spinlock will be in Romania to participate in the main conference of the high oleic in the world.
Romania is one of the leading producers and exporters of agricultural products in Europe. This sector accounts for 10% of GDP. Crops occupy 40% of the surface of the country. Spinlock has representation in this country through the company Astra Prim.

SPINLOCK ATTENDED AT ARGETINA OIL & GAS EXPO

Spinlock had a succesful participation in the Argetina Oil & Gas Expo held in Buenos Aires. This event is considered one of the most important within the oil & gas industry in the region. It benefits from an important international recognition, attracting the primary actors of the industry.

During the event, Spinlock was present in a stand within GAPP (Oil & Gas provider’s group), where it displayed one of its innovations (SLK 1000 PM), which allows the determination of rock porosity (core plugs) in shale rocks. Additionaly, Dr. Daniel Pusiol provided a conference about the results obtained of the first multiphasic flowmeter, recently installed in southern Argentina.

We take the opportnity to thank both the IAPG (Argentina Oil & Gas Institute) and GAPP for the opportunity that provides us and the industry as a whole, to display the latest developments. We also want to send our appreciation to those that reached to our stand, assisted the conference, and met our staff.

SPINLOCK UPCOMING EVENTS

During the months of October and November Spinlock will be attending two important events within the Oil & Gas and Oil & Fats industries.

Between October 5th and 8th, Spinlock will actively participate in the AOG, Argentina Oil & Gas Expo, organized by the Argentinean Oil and Gas Institute. This organization promotes a space of business exchange that involves the group of providers who represent the value chain of oil and gas, together with the industries that make use of the latest innovations to increase their efficiency in a sustainable way.
