- Platform
- Capacity: 1500 lb/hour

- Reason for low hours is; machine is only tried for raw material trials; and patent applications as a pilot line.
- There are absolutely no problems at all.

Machine can be used for
- HDPE oxygen injection
- PP + vis breaking peroxide
- LLDPE CaCO3 compounding
- LLDPE CaCO3 compounding
- LDPE CaCO3 compounding
- CaCO3 with different polymers
- Color M.B. trials
- Carbon black trials
- TiO2 trials

- Machine is very flexible can be sold for CaCO3 / masterbach / vis breaking or other compounding operations

The dimensions of the platform is 7 x 8 meter and 7 meter height
- Approx weight of platform is 12-13 m ton
- Approx total weight of the equipment is about 16-18 m ton

1) There is no single screw in this installation. the system is equipped with MAAG gear pump. this is a far better/advanced system compared to single screw installation; as you can control the residence time in the mixer and mixing time ; together with feed rate algorithm.
a) Such gear pump assembly is needed for reactive extrusion + peroxide breaking of PP
b) We were doing peroxide breaking of PP and also oxygen + nitrojen injection to HDPE

2) The underwater pelletizing system is from GALA; only the cutter hub and assbemly is from Farrel.
3) Gala underwater pelletizer
4) Feeders;
a) Ktron single screw volumetric
i) Additives like antioxidants or free flowable powders or granules
b) Ktron twin screw gravimentric
i) Polymers / free flowing powders / anti oxidants etc.
c) Ktron weight belt feeder -gravimetric / not installed currently
i) Powders like caco3 tio2 carbon black granules etc.
ii) Granules
iii) Powder granule mix. etc.
e) Vibrator feeder; gravimetric
i) Powders liek caco3 tio2 carbon black/ granules / powder granule mix etx.
Last production was %78 caco3 +%22PE/PP; machine easly mixes and compounds such high amounts
