Glove Industry

A rubber glove production plant utilizes many heating equipment and mechanisms. From heating in an oven after a latex bath to drying in a dryer after a polymer bath. All of these processes require many heating mechanisms.

By implementing proper heat recovering equipment and system such as a heat exchangers, a rubber glove production plant can efficiently recover heat and reduce its energy cost. An efficient rubber glove production plant can also achieve a greener environment by recycling heat.

Looking for ways to maximize the energy efficiency of your rubber glove production plant? HISAKA Thermal Products could be the solution.

Glove DIpping Process
Process Flow Diagram

Glove DIpping Process

One of the methods to reduce protein in latex powder and polymer-coated gloves is to increase the leaching times and/or increase leaching temperatures (with as high as 75 °C in an online leaching bath tank). This method has been used until today in many glove production plants, which uses a lot more energy and water consumption.

To help reduce the energy cost, you can install HISAKA heat exchanger to use as a heat recovery unit in your glove processing line. This can help your glove processing line to improve energy efficiency as well as reduce energy consumption.

Where can we apply heat recovery in the glove dipping process?

1. By using heat waste from utility equipment.

2. By using heat waste from overflow wastewater

Our Suggestion On Common Maintenance Issues

Issue 1: Leaking from compressor oil heat recovery unit

This issue may occur if the unit is running for a long period of time which exceed the operating temperature. The gasket became harden and thinner that caused leakage to occur.

HISAKA suggestions:
  • Maintain operating temperature within design specification.
  • Select a higher grade of gasket material.
  • Plan proper preventive maintenance.
Issue 2: Waste water mud

This issue happens because of liquid flow is too dirty and contains a lot of waste. Not suitable plate gap will cause this fouling to happen very quickly which end up decrease the heat transfer efficiency of the heat exchanger.

HISAKA suggestions:
  • Change to multi-gap plate pattern.
  • Change to fully welded or spiral type heat exchanger.
  • Add a number of plates or stand-by units.
