The TEXα III series is a new line of compounding twin-screw extruders from JSW (U.S. office in Novi, Mich.) is aimed compounding, masterbatch production, devolatilization, rubber/elastomer and dewatering.
Compared with the TEXα II series, the TEXa III features a newly designed gearbox, screw shaft (utilizing improved materials and new design) and barrels, which result in improved torque of the TEXα III by as much as 36%. Complex alloys developed exclusively in JSW’s own steel refining mills have been used to improve strength and durability. The obvious benefits are longer lifetime, higher output capacity, improved production qualities by more aggressive kneading and mixing, or reduced polymer temperature with lower screw speed, combined with increased performance, improved performance reliability and enhanced quality.
The latest generation TEXα III series is comprised of seven models in diameters ranging from 26.5 to 129.5 mm, and a torque range between 387 and 43,969 Nm per the two shafts. A high-precision torque limiter ensures mechanical and safety protection under operation with highest torque load, which is critical to safeguard the equipment and prevents downtime. A water-cooled motor is optional, assisting in noise reduction.
