Moisture Meter is now avail- able globally


show review | 2016 The redesigned, compact discharge


extruder now features an electrically heated and air-cooled discharge screw rather than the previous oil heating system. This improves both safety and operational reliability. A screen changer can now also be retrofitted. For processing semi-conductive


compounds or carbon black master- batches, the discharge extruder can be replaced by a melt pump. ❙ www.busscorp.com


Designed for polyolefin pellet production at rates of 60-70 tonnes/h, the UG 750W underwater pelletiser from Coperion is a new addition to the line that features a new die plate material claimed to extend service life by up to 100%. The NikroDur material, developed by Coperion in


conjunction with DEW Deutsche Edelstahlwerke, is a powder metallurgy grade offering at least 50% higher wear resistance and 30% higher corrosion resistance than conventional ferro-titanate alternatives. It also provides a 20% lower thermal conductivity, which the company says helps optimise temperature manage- ment of the plate. The UG 750W is intended to bridge the gap between


the company’s existing 55 tonnes/h UG750, which is very widely used in PE applications, and the much larger 82 tonnes/h UG1000 for throughputs of up to 82 t/h. The new model is based on the UG750 design but uses the extended cutting surface from the UG1000. Due to the wider cutting circle and optimised die hole arrangement, it has been possible to increase the number of holes in comparison with the UG750 by around 27% to more than 5,700. By using products from Coperion’s existing range,


compounders with a UG750 pelletiser that require an increase in throughput can upgrade to the UG 750W

wear resistant steel to double service life


specification at an affordable price, according to Coperion.

Dr Collin launched its new Polytest product division at the show. The Polytest Line is designed to provide continuous evaluation of extrusion and melt quality during production. It comprises three modules that can be used independently


or together to provide rheological melt characteri-


sation, optical film inspection, and mechanical film testing. It offers real time control of melt viscosity with MVR, iV-value or apparent viscosity, statistical error detection of film gels and black spots, colour monitor- ing, NIR detection of foreign polymers, and determina- tion of stress-strain values. The multi-inspection system can be used online at


the extruder or offline in the laboratory. “Our aim was to develop and manufacture a compact, robust and cost efficient online measuring device. The modular design allows the adaptation of the measuring devices to the corresponding requirements of our customers,” said Collin CEO Dr Friedrich Kastner. An upstream melt pump provides the constant melt


flow for rheology characterisation, while an automatic pressure filter test can be used to identify agglomer- ates, insufficient dispersion of fillers, or contaminants. An automatic screen changing system allows the filter test to process seven material samples successively without stopping the system. In addition, an online viscometer can be used for continuous monitoring of melt viscosity. ❙ www.drcollin.de


Moretto used the show to announce global availability of its Moisture Meter, an inline resin moisture meas- urement tool that can be used with its own or third party equipment to maintain production quality and reduce energy consumption. The company said trials have now been running at


customer sites for more than a year and the Moisture Meter is now ready for commercial sale. It was demonstrated at the show on an injection moulding machine producing medical parts. Moretto also launched the X-Comb Dryer, which has


been developed specifically to meet the requirements of the medical industry. Using Moretto’s OTX hopper technology, the new unit is capable of achieving a -52°C dew point and is said to be a high performance unit suitable for low volume production with engineer- ing thermoplastics. ❙ www.moretto.com
