Enables use up of to 20 calibrators in the cooling system.
Company increases manufacturing space by more than 90%.
Modular sytems can extrude 4- to 26-in. pipe and has capability up to 48 in. in lengths of 500 ft or more.
Piston filtration offers many advantages over other systems. While pressure fluctuations could be regarded as their weakness, there are many ways to avoid them, both from the mechanical and the process side. Small adjustment can make a huge difference in the overall performance and efficiency of the system.
Succeeds long-time CEO Jürgen Vutz, who will join the company’s Supervisory Board beginning the new year.
By adopting a few relatively simple practices, plastics processors can extend the life of the vital components of their plasticating unit. Here’s how to get started.
That is the question pipe and tubing processors typically confront when they specify a line for one product, only to have to add to the product mix when business conditions change. Here are some tips to guide you to the right answer.
Well-equipped and well-staffed testing lab elevates competence of custom processor.
Instead of turning down a job or farming out cutting to another company because of downstream bottlenecks, Eagle Elastomer can now handle all extrusion process functions in-house.
Billed as ideal for large-diam. pipes, new extruder provides processor with higher output and better quality while consuming less power.
This usually crops up when the two stages are not matched in output. The best solution is to install a pressure-adjusting valve at the discharge end of the extruder.
System bypasses pelletizing step and can reprocess barrier films.
Beyond just the “invoice price” of a barrel, processors should consider factors like the composition of the inlay, quality of the backing material, straightness, concentricity, machining imperfections and packaging/handling, to understand the true cost of owning a barrel.
Systems rely on infrared heaters inside the cylinder.
Every processor should get hold of the viscosity curves for the polymers they use or contemplate using in their operations, and learn how to read them.
Beginning Oct. 8, we will be bringing exclusive, live, online technical content on a wide range of processing topics that you can access for free.
Processors producing melt-blown nonwovens for face masks are finding that pumps provide needed precision and efficiency in the extrusion process.
