Battenfeld-Cincinnati to demonstrate wood-plastic composite capabilities


Battenfeld-Cincinnati will demonstrate its latest WPC processing technology for solid decking profiles during AMI’s 9th Wood Plastics Composites conference in Vienna, Austria, in February. The company will be running its new fiberEX 114 parallel twin-screw extruder – a high output WPC production unit that the company says is well suited for the extrusion of solid WPC decking profiles. Demand for WPC products


is growing at around 20-25% a year in Europe, says Battenfeld-Cincinnati. Solid decking profile is one of the


INSTRUMENTATION Dynisco performs better under pressure


Dynisco has added two new pressure transducers to its range – the Echo series targets general purpose extrusion monitoring applica- tions, while the Vertex units deliver the additional perfor- mance required for more demanding markets such as the medical sector. Echo sensors use a proven sensor design


that offers accuracy to within ±0.5% over pressures ranging from 0-1,500 psi or 0-10,000 psi. They feature stainless steel construction on all surfaces in contact with the melt, while the diaphragm is coated with titanium aluminium nitride for additional durability, enabling Dynisco to offer a two-year warranty.


Vertex models are the first


Dynisco units to offer direct pressure measurement. Eliminating the typical mechanical pressure transfer systems or liquid fill media means improved precision and longer service life, according to the company. The absence of any liquids also eliminates leakage risk. Key to the new Vertex


Dynisco’s Vertex models offer direct pressure measurement for demanding applications


design is the sensor tip arrangement, which incorporates a single highly robust diaphragm manufac- tured from high corrosion resistant Inconel 718 steel and finished with a DyMax diamond-hard protective coating. This new construc- tion also includes an improved sensor wall structure with improved ability to handle side stresses. Vertex accuracy is within 0.25% of full scale over the standard pressure ranges of 1,500, 3,000, 5,000, 7,500 or 10,000 psi. A four-year warranty is provided. ❙ www.dynisco.com

Battenfeld-Cincinnati’s fiberEX 114 is particularly suitable for the extrusion of solid WPC profiles


emerging trends, originally developing in Germany but now gaining market share across Europe. Compared to traditional


hollow profiles, solid decking offers the ability to accept


diagonal cuts and does not require injection-moulded finishing caps. The reduced surface area also minimises water absorption. Battenfeld-Cincinnati has more than 250 WPC lines in


operation worldwide covering outputs from 20 to 1,000 kg/h. The fiberEX 114 extruder is the second model in a new range of high-per- formance WPC extruders, joining the recently intro- duced fiberEX 135 model. Both are claimed to provide optimal process stability along with maximum production outputs and degassing performance. AMI’s Wood Plastics


Composites conference takes place in Vienna on 25-27 February. For more information,
