The SITRAPLAS pilot plant has three twin-screw extruders and one single-screw extruder for filament production. The machinery of the pilot plant is supplemented by various pelletizing systems in wet and dry cutting, as well as an underwater pelletizer. All pelletizing processes are modularly adaptable to the extruders. Further peripheral components such as various metering units, liquid metering, side degassing and up to three side feeders can be variably assigned to the compounding lines.
The scale-up capability of the laboratory plants to the in-house production lines guarantees the best possible conversion of the development products into compounds ready for series production. All process data are digitally recorded and can be used for process analysis.
