ZSK MC18 adds 25mm-diameter screw

Issue: NPE Supplement May 2015

ZSK 26 MC18  This twin-screw lab compounding extruder from Coperion GmbH is designed for sample compound trials or producing small material batches up to 180 kilograms (397 pounds) per hour. NPE is the extruder’s U.S. launch.

WHAT'S NEW?  The new 25mm-diameter screw and an increase in specific torque (15 newton meters/cubic centimeter) to boost throughput. The die head incorporates an optimized heating system. The compact design integrates the control cabinet into the base frame.

BENEFITS  Low energy use, and lower melt temperatures than its predecessor ZSK 26 machine for gentler product handling. The simple design makes the machine easy to operate and clean.
