Busan, South Korea -- At the forthcoming UTECH North America 2010 exhibition, Korean machinery supplier DUT Korea says it will be aiming to meet potential buyers to let them see that its mix-heads and metering pumps are offered at "competitive prices and functions."
The company notes that "current PU market conditions in North America are still not good due to the world economy downturn."
Despite this, DUT Korea is keen to show visitors to stand 104 its new mix-head (DHV-Series), in which polyol and isocyanate are injected at high pressure, with impingement applied to the mixing principle. The company says this increases the kinetic energy of the mixture and gives rise to swirling and vortices in the mix. The mix-head has a high mixing efficiency with double tilted nozzles as in DUT's world patent, the company adds.
In Houston, the company will also show its metering pump (DVP series), developed in-house, which is less expensive -- DUT claims it is half the price of equivalent German-made pumps, at similar function and quality.
UTECH North America 2010, organised by Urethanes Technology International publisher Crain Communications Ltd, is being held in conjunction with the Polyurethanes 2010 technical conference being organised by the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry.
The joint event for the polyurethanes sector takes place 11-13 Oct at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
