Aplicator’s IPL-8000 is the “workhorse” of the Aplicator range of machines. A superbly designed and engineered resin roller impregnator that eliminates the “bucket and brush” in hand layup. The roller impregnator is very economical and easy to use machine, that provides an improved working environment. Using advanced and proven techniques, the machine is easy and ergonomically designed. The on/off roller handle controls the flow of resin to the roller as required. An exact resin to catalyst ratio between 0.8% to 4.0% is provided by Aplicator’s unique stepless adjustable catalyst slave pump and internal mixing of resin and catalyst in a static mixer ensures there is a thorough blending of the components.
Aplicator’s IPL-8000 machine works with an air-driven dual acting piston pump, both for the resin and the catalyst. Manufactured from stainless steel, the catalyst pump incorporates a pressure gauge and pressure relief valve and is synchronised with the resin pump shaft for precise delivery of catalyst. Consequently, it is independent of variations in air supply or material viscosity. Catalyst volumes are easily adjusted with a handwheel, which changes the stroke length of the catalyst pump. The mixing ratios are continuously variable. Catalyst is pumped directly from the original container. Resin is usually pumped from a 200-litre drum, but can also be pumped from a 25-litre pail, a bulk container or a fixed storage tank. The components are mixed internally in a static mixer before the material is pumped through a single hose to the dispensing handle with simple trigger operated flow control. To minimise fumes, the material is distributed to the lambs-wool roller through a perforated T-bar at a very low pressure. As there is no handling of resin or catalyst in open containers, the overall working environment will be much cleaner and safer. To facilitate degassing and function checks the machine is additionally equipped with a unique recirculation system for the catalyst and resin.
Cleaning the roller dispenser after use is easy using the built-in pneumatically operated flush pump. Pressing the flushing button on the pump will automatically flush the static mixer, hose, handle and dispensing T-bar with no manual handling of hazardous solvents.
