MDC Engineering

MDC ENGINEERING designs and sells production lines named VulcanoClean for continuous vulcanization of extruded elastomer.


The VulcanoClean is a line of continuous vulcanization in salt baths (LCM) which has the following advantages :

  • - Ecological  : salts are recycled, treatment of vulcanisation fumes and the rinsing waters in a closed circuit
  • -Productive  : up to a speed of 120 meters / minute
  • - Economic  : very low energy consumption per kg vulcanized
  • - Universal  : suitable method for all types of polymers
  • - Accurate  : control of sections size and of mechanical properties
  • - Reliable  : high reproducibility and homogeneity
  • - Flexible  : ability to produce several profiles simultaneously


In addition, MDC ENGINEERING offers to adapt the VulcanoClean process to existing LCM lines and many additional services, including through :

  • - Project management : from a simple LCM equipment, as well as a complicated complete production line
  • - A Technical Assistance contract : performed by expert engineers of MDC Engineering, that is to say : the development of specifications, the advised board for choosing of suppliers, the prior technical receptions before making the final technical implementation.
  • - A production tool for quality management : supply and commissioning of a supervising system and of statistical controls for quality monitoring by end users online.
  • - A service after sales by means of remote maintenance diagnostics
  • - The supply of specific additional equipments on request (upstream and / or downstream of the line)

Jean-Baptiste de Chamisso

Engineer, Jean-Baptiste de Chamisso has worked since 1987 to develop a new generation of equipment for the rubber industry in the specialized company Durferrit ®, the worldwide leader of salt bath technologies (industrial applications 140 ° C to 1250 ° C for heat treatments and thermo chemical treatments of metals). He is the inventor of LCM VulcanoClean lines for continuous vulcanization in salt baths of extruded polymers, a pollution-free technology, now worldwide recognized.


His work has spawned a revolution in the industrial world of vulcanization. The process VulcanoClean, environmentally friendly, incorporates a recirculation system and an efficient washing system specifically with a reclaiming salt system, as well as with low energy consumption. Today it is no comparison on the market and has not any equivalent to the VulcanoClean.


MDC ENGINEERING "in Cooperation with Durferrit® : Founded by Jean-Baptiste de Chamisso, MDC ENGINEERING is the exclusive distributor of the LCM vulcanisation salt bath line, innovative and environment-friendly, named VulcanoClean, in collaboration with the World leader of technologies by salt liquid bath : Durferrit ® GmbH.

The innovation of the vulcanization line (LCM : Liquid Curing Media) VulcanoClean lies in its patented machine : EcoClean, green revolution in this business field which allows the integral recycling of the whole vulcanisation salts, the treatment of fumes and of all rinsing waters, with work in closed circuit, and so for all kind of LCM lines used for the extrusion and the continuous vulcanisation of profiled rubber (EPDM, NR, CR, SBR ...).
