Polymer production and processing – Maag Group, Hall 10 Booth F11
The Maag Group is presenting its product portfolio on pump & filtration systems, pelletising & pulverising systems, recycling systems and digital solutions.
The Extrex gear pumps GA are designed for common thermoplastic extrusion applications and are claimed to offer a high overall efficiency and minimum abrasion due to leading gear and bearing technology. They feature with low pulsation pump action also in cases of high differential pressure and a simple and compact design.
The Extrex recycling pump has been newly developed to ensure reliable extrusion in the recycling process. It features an optimised geometry that, in many cases, eliminates the need for an upstream protective filter, saving space and reducing the energy required for heating and drive power.
Maag Ettlinger ERF 350 is a high-performance melt filter for the filtration of heavily contaminated polymer feedstock. The filter is self-cleaning with a rotating, perforated drum, through which there is a continuous flow of melt from the outside to the inside. A scraper removes the contaminants that are held back on the surface and feeds them to the discharge system. This enables the filter to be used fully automatically and without any disruptions over long periods and without having to replace the screen. The advantages: reliable melt filtration, ultra-low melt losses and good mixing and homogenising of the melts.
The Baoli-3 strand pelletiser is outfitted with German-made core components and has been designed for use with both hard and soft pelletising materials. The most noteworthy highlights are its compact design that features height-adjustment, left-side/right-side control capabilities that provide greater operational flexibility, and reduced noise generation during operation. At the same time it offers easy access for cleaning, making it easy for maintenance, material changes, and colour changes.
The Zhuli system is a flexible underwater pelletising system designed for use with standard products, such as filled polyolefins, polyesters and thermoplastic elastomers. Zhuli’s cutting tools are claimed to deliver spherical pellets of high quality that are suited for further processing, with throughput rates of up to 1,200 kg/h. The pelletising system has a small footprint and is simple to operate.
