BKG Bruckmann & Kreyenborg Granuliertechnik GmbH, Muenster/Germany, announced signing of a contract with Tianjin Dagu Chemical Co. Ltd., concerning the delivery of several underwater pelletizing systems for the production of Styrene Acrylonitrile (SAN).
BKG will supply complete pelletizing lines including the control systems. In a second pass, the pellets produced in these BKG lines will be processed into approx. 200,000 tons of ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) per year.
To date, this project is the largest order ever for BKG in China. BKG delivered over 50 underwater pelletizing systems to China since the mid 90's in the field of extrusion as well as polymerisation. At first, mostly small lines for compounding and technical polymers were demanded. But now, the request for reactor lines has increased because more and more Chinese customers.
