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.
