ENTEK has developed a new manufacturing process for producing carbide-lined extrusion barrels. This new process uses a proprietary spherical carbide/nickel binder, which offers numerous advantages over the competition, including higher rigidity and improved wear resistance. Carbide barrels are used in extrusion applications to resist abrasion and corrosion caused by highly-filled materials. This new process developed by ENTEK shows proven, significant improvement in barrel wear resistance. Some of these improvements include: -25% better wear resistance than angular carbides, 3x longer life than tool steel -superior corrosion resistance due to nickel matrix -thicker wear surface (.150" compared to typical thickness of .010" - .065" in competitive models) These new carbide barrels are offered by ENTEK for both ENTEK E-MAX twin-screw extruders and other OEM extruders as well. They join the lineup of ENTEK replacement wear parts, including screw elements and barrels for co-rotating and counter-rotating twin-screw extruders.
