Pressure build-up at the end of the production process is at least as important for perfect pellet quality as a fully homogeneous mixing of the various raw materials in the compounding step. The new COMPEO discharge unit is based on the principle of a conical twin screw, designed to run in a metered method. The entire controlled pressure build-up takes place in the slowly rotating twin screw. In this way potential temperature increases at the transition from compounder to discharge unit are eliminated. The operating principle of a screw pump guarantees maximum conveying efficiency at low RPM. The COMPEO discharge unit is suitable for a wide range of applications, is very user-friendly and extremly efficient.

The new state-of-the-art COMPEO compounder in combination with this extremely efficient discharge unit  is particularly suitable for PVC pelletizing, masterbatch, calendering, cable and rubber compounds, performance compounds, engineering plastics, thermoplastic elastomers, thermosets, PBT, PET, bitumen, bioplastics, hot melt, friction coatings …
