HDPE - PPR Pipe Extrusion Lines

PE - PPR Pipe Extrusion Lines

HDPE-PPR Pipe Extrusion Lines

Plastmach's singe screw extruders are for extrusion of polyolefin (HDPE, HDPE PLB Ducting, PP, PP-R & LLDPE, LDPE) pipes. The extruders with screw diameters 16 mm to 400 mm are available for output range 100 kg/hr to 500 kg/hr.

This field proven design of energy efficient extruders comes with a combination of barrier screw and grooved feed bush results into optimum performance. Thus, resulting into a high-quality PE pipe which can be used for wide range of processing applications.

Features

  • Energy-efficient extruder (one electrical unit delivering 3-4 kgs outputs)
  • Provides excellent linearity of outputs
  • Long screw designs with L/D ratio of 36:1 for excellent melt homogeneity
  • 300 kg/hr pipe output with 45 mm extruder & 500 kg/hr with 60 mm extruders
  • Versatile screw designed for PE & PP random co-polymer
  • Direct coupled gearbox design ensures minimum transmission loss & compact layout
  • Wear-resistant coating guarantees long screw life
  • Grooved feed design extruder for highest efficiency

Unique Advantages

  • Higher productivity compared to conventional design
  • Uniform melt temperature
  • Reduced power consumption (one electrical unit delivering up to 3 kgs to 4 kgs outputs)
  • Wide range of processing applications due to longer L/D ratio
  • Superior physical properties of end product
