  • Standard material for product contact and housing is stainless steel
  • No moving or rotating parts – no maintenance required, no danger of screw break or jamming
  • Simple control system
  • Data transfer to other process section

General features using a masterbatch system:

  • Only basic polymer has to be stored and conveyed, product modifications are made at the single spinning extruder by adding the master chips
  • High production flexibility, product changes can be made at once
  • Larger variety of products can be produced in a simple way
  • Low waste while changing the product
  • Small quantities of special products may be produced
  • Gravimetric
  • Gastight
  • Continuous
  • Microprocessor controlled

Accurate dosing for any masterbatch directly at the extruder inlet.
