BUSS Kneader series KX
The most efficient mixing technology for anode paste
For more than 60 years the Buss Co-Kneader series KE and CP have been the benchmark for cost-effective compounding of anode paste. We continue the tradition with genuine KX technology. Safe. Efficient. Proven.
In 2012, ten years after the successful introduction of 4-flighted screw technology in plastics compounding – thereby doubling output rates and setting new benchmarks in terms of mixing efficiency – Buss AG undertook to adapt and enhance the proven solver-based math model-ling tools for anode paste mixing.
The resulting 4-flighted KX geometry has the fol-lowing main advantages over traditional 3-flighted technology:
- Up to 50% more throughput for
the same machine size
- More intense mixing thanks to 33%additional shear surface
- Improved microdispersion due to 45%higher flow separation rate
- Bigger volumetric capacity
Anode paste is critically important for the industrial production of aluminium (aluminum).
