Unique Extruder Reclaims Nylon 11 Oil Pipe
A British recycling company has found an interesting application for the MRS Extrusion System from Gneuss (U.S. office in Matthews, N.C.). K2 Polymers Ltd. in Loughborough, U.K., which specializes in recycling engineering resins, is using the MRS (Multi Rotation System) to reprocess nylon 11 regrind heavily contaminated with oil.The regrind came from deep-sea oil pipes that were scrapped after having been recovered from the sea floor at a depleted oilfield.
Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: Advances Push Efficiency Envelope
Blown film towers may have been scarce, but there was no shortage of new technology aimed at helping to make extrusion processors more profitable.
Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: More Output, More Flexibility, Less Energy
There won't be many blown-film lines running, but there is still much in the way of innovation going on in extrusion and compounding.
