Thermoplastic processing requires positive displacement devices that gently convey any kind of thermoplastic grades from high to low viscosity through the system. Specifically designed, low compression tooth design allow the extrex®-x6 class transfer, booster or metering gear pump to achieve both high pressure and low shear.
Processes in the manufacture of polyolefins require high-pressure gear pumps which build up pressure for the units after the compounder. The new performance driven geometry of polyrex® x6 class results in high throughput rates at high flow rates and low shear stress. Polyrex6 can convey low viscosity polymers where earlier pump generations failed. Thanks to increased pump performance, the specific conveying capacity is 50% higher compared to same housing size pumps of older generations. For debottlenecking existing plants, Maag offers alternative housing designs with matching interfaces to older pump generations.
Elastomeric processing requires positive displacement devices that gentle convey high viscosity rubber through the system. Specifically designed, low compression tooth design allow the extrex6 ER transfer, booster or metering gear pump to achieve both high pressure and low shear. The rubber compound is conveyed with a constant, precise flow even at high discharge pressures – and this also for extremely dry or sticky compounds, where former pump generations reached their limits due to scorch. Additionally, their anyway high efficiency and long life span will extend unrivaled due to reduced internal friction.
