At the upcoming Saudi PPPP, battenfeld-cincinnati will again present its portfolio of high-performance, energy-efficient extrusion equipment in hall 2 booth 506.2.
battenfeld-cincinnati’s portfolio comprises single, twin screw and planetary roller extruders, pipe tooling as well as downstream equipment for a wide range of applications. Solutions for special applications such as multi-layer pipe and profile co-extrusion and a wide range of options to increase wear resistance according to the customers’ needs are also available.
Large diameter pipe extrusion up to 2,600 mm
battenfeld-cincinnati is technology leader in tailor-made, large-diameter pipe extrusion equipment for both PO pipe (up to 2,600 mm) and PVC pipe (up to 1,600 mm).
In 2015, the company sold the first polyolefin solid-wall pipe line for 2,600 mm pipes worldwide to an Asian customer. The line is powered by a solEX 120-40 extruder, which achieves outputs up to 2,200 kg/h with excellent melt homogeneity and low melt temperatures.
Alongside the extruder, the tooling is the second key component of a line. With the helix VSI-T+ pipe head system, minimum ovality and minimum sagging, particularly for thick walls of more than 100 mm, can be ensured. In addition, thanks to the EAC (efficient air cooling) internal pipe cooling system, a shortened cooling section and a shorter total line length are possible, thus resulting in energy savings of up to 30% in production.
In 2015, the solEX extruder series was extended by a new machine, the solEX 150. With outputs of up to 2,750 kg/h for PE-HD, it is particularly suited for the demands of the growing large diameter heavy wall PO pipe market.
Thermoforming sheet equipment: high performance – low energy consumption
Over the last decade, battenfeld-cincinnati has installed more than 250 high-speed single screw extruders worldwide. battenfeld-cincinnati’s high-speed extruders reduce energy consumption by 25% compared to conventional extruders with the same output rates.
The Multi-Touch roll stack technology, which was introduced in 2012, also saves 2-4% in material due to uniform cooling of the sheet on both sides and narrow tolerances. Thus, production lines from battenfeld-cincinnati with a Multi-Touch roll stack and a high-speed extruder are extremely efficient and, due to their high product quality and high outputs, they are ideal for PS and PP thermoforming sheet production.
Space-saving high-speed extrusion for uPVC pipes
battenfeld-cincinnati recently developed a space-saving quadruple high-speed extrusion line for the production of uPVC pipes with diameters ranging from 16 mm up to 50 mm. With the twinEX 114-34R, extruder outputs of up to 1,050 kg/h can be achieved with four independently controlled strands. This line was recently delivered to a customer in the Near Middle East.
Multi-layer extrusion equipment for PP-RCT pipe with a glass fiber reinforced middle layer
battenfeld-cincinnati also has comprehensive expertise in multi-layer extrusion, with a portfolio of extruders, dies and downstream equipment even for complex applications like PP-RCT pipe with a glass fiber reinforced middle layer. Pipes with glass fiber reinforcement are particularly resistant to heat, pressure and chemicals. With these additional benefits, they are preferred for use in transporting hot and cold drinking water, in heating systems, in greenhouses and for use in rainwater harvesting.
