Extrusion International 2-2021

47 Extrusion International 2/2021 The highlight of the booth will be the ERF350, a high-per- formance melt filter for the filtration of heavily contami- nated polymer feedstock. The filter is self-cleaning with a rotating, perforated drum, through which there is a continuous flow of melt from the outside to the inside. A scraper removes contaminants that are held back on the surface and feeds them to the discharge system. This en- ables the filter to operate automatically, without disrup- tions over long periods and without having to replace the screen. The advantages: ultra-low melt losses and good mixing and homogenizing of the melt. Another highlight in the MAAG Group booth is the PEARLO ® underwater pelletizing system for the highly efficient and flexible production of spherical pellets with throughputs of up to 36,000 kg/h. Compact and modu- larly structured, it requires only a very small footprint. Electronically controlled EAC technology guarantees pre- cise pressure of the pelletizing knives during operation, thereby enabling long runtimes free of interruptions with consistently high pellet quality. In the same equipment segment, MAAG Group shows a BAOLI ® -3 third-generation dry-cut pelletizer for process- ing hard and soft materials. The key components of these pelletizers are manufactured in Germany, and all versions meet the requirements of applicable safety standards in Germany. Maag has more than 60 years’ experience in pelletizers and has already installed around 800 BAOLI pelletizers in China. As with previous BAOLI generations, the automated cutting chamber locking system enables fast handling while supporting operator safety. From its extensive range of gear pumps, MAAGGroupwill be presenting the extrex ® gear pump in x6 class design at Chinaplas. As with all x6 versions, MAAG Group has com- pletely re-engineered and redesigned the components, from the shafts through to the bearings and seals, and optimized the interaction of the components. Specially developed gear teeth with low compression allow very high pressures to be achieved with low shear rates. The result is a further increase in achievable product quality, volumetric efficiency, as well as production consistency and safety.
