LEWA supports you in plastics processing with custom-built plants and systems. Ask our experts for more information!
LEWA supplies complete, ready to use solutions fitting your application. All combinations of the LEWA modules offer a completely automatic, clean, reliable and flexible extrusion.
The scope of services ranges from the supply of system assemblies through engineering and the start up of complex metering and mixing systems with custom system control, process display, logging of operational data, as well as interfaces to the process control system. The scope, including the process control, is done from one source and guarantees the optimal safety and functionality of the system.
Advantages of LEWA heated systems:
Insulated stainless steel cabinet with regulated air circulation and reliable sensor system; all equipment required for operation is accessible from the outside; electric heating, using steam or thermal fluids.
Stainless steel containers in various sizes with heating jacket, sensors and also optionally available with mixer; electric heating, using steam or thermal fluids.
Slave PLC, stand-alone PLC, microcontroller, relay technology, optional explosion proof.
Extrusion is an important process in the plastics industry. Extruders must be heated, in order to melt the filled plastic granules or powder.
Some process related tasks make it necessary to cool the plasticized melt. Depending on the plastic used, other equipment is necessary, e.g., for pumping gases, which leave bubbles in the end product.
Normally other machines are required after the nozzle in the production of plastic products.
|They are subject to the following requirements:
|In addition, there are the requirements for all raw materials:
|Good environmental compatibility
|Lasting effect, e. g. for light stabilizers
|Low health risks
|No negative influences
In general, the quantity used is very low and includes less than 1% of the total recipe.
