KraussMaffei Berstorff: Complete Direct Extrusion Line for Egypt
A direct extrusion line from KraussMaffei Berstorff, Hanover, Germany, will shortly come on stream at Hamza Industry Co., Cairo, Egypt, where it will produce highly filled three-layer sewage pipes made of polypropylene.
The scope of the order comprises a KMG 81-40/R corotating twin-screw extruder as the main extruder for the filled middle layer, a KME 38-30 B/R coextruder for the thin internal and external layers, the KM-RKW 73 three-layer pipehead and downstream units for calibration and cooling.
The system processes highly filled PP into pipes with a diameter ranging between 20 and 250mm and at a maximum output rate of 700kg/h./ line The pipe components are compounded using a special material weighing system and are extruded simultaneously as the finished pipe in the direct extrusion process.
