Semi-Auto-Open Portable Electric Vulcanizer (SAO-PEV): An Innovation


In this 3rd study—Semi-Auto-Open Portable Electric Vulcanizer (SAO-PEV) is to minimize the delayed opening of the vulcanizing head for releasing and removing the vulcanized rubber tire and to eradicate the haphazard operation after the post vulcanization process. This machine is made of steel materials with GI pipes gauge 20 with a configuration of an elongated letter “C” with a mica heating element that were attached to the vulcanizer head and the Electronic Control Unit (ECU); thus, this machine weighted 9.25 kg. For post vulcanization process, the vulcanizer head was released by turning the lock latch in 1 to 2 minutes while in the 2nd study of Portable Electronic Vulcanizer, it took 5 to 8 minutes to unscrew the lag bolt to remove the finished vulcanized rubber tire. In constructing the product, special gadgets were installed and added with a safety fuse. The level of effectiveness was based on the first study to avoid inconsistencies of data. For Class A gum, the best temperature which bonded exactly to the rubber tire was 60℃ in 1 minute while for Class B gum it bonded at 60℃ in 2 minutes respectively. The rate of energy consumed by the electronic vulcanizer, for Class A gum is Php 0.0757 and for Class B gum is Php 0.15 respectively with an efficiency of 85.22% and for conventional vulcanizer for Class A gum is Php 1.08 with an efficiency of 43.38% and for Class B gum is Php 1.52 respectively with an efficiency of 78.08%. The study revealed that more tires can be vulcanized in a short period of time, therefore greater income over time.
