BUSS process expertise is key for highly filled compounds. Apart from optimal distribution of the material flows, particular attention must also be paid to air and moisture entrained during the feeding of fillers. The process geometry must therefore be optimally configured accordingly. With the right configuration, the BUSS Kneader’s large capacities and associated torques enable efficient production of reinforced compounds.
With its outstanding allrounder qualities and enormously wide operating window, the BUSS Kneader can handle the widest range of processes with fillers such as talcum, titanium dioxide or barium sulphate, as well as aluminium (aluminum) or magnesium hydroxides. A welcome side effect of the BUSS Kneader’s moderate shear rate is much less wear and tear than with other screw kneaders. The modular design and resultant adaptability of the entire BUSS Co-Kneader line makes it an excellent choice for compounding filled and reinforced thermoplastics.
