Aimed at wood-plastic composites, the fi berexK72 conical twin-screw extruder series from Battenfeld-Cincinnati in Germany (represented in North America by American Maplan, McPherson, Kan.), offers an output range from 200 to 600 lb/hr, making it possible to extrude a great variety of different profiles with only one machine—an attribute frequently demanded by newcomers. The machine
is said to be suitable for processing preblended compounds as well as agglomerates based on PVC, PE, or PP. The fi berexK72 comes with closed-loop internal screw cooling, a fully insulated barrel, AC drive, and an easy-to-operated vacuum unit with twin filter.
