MRS Extruder

MRS Extrusion Concept

The patented MRS Extrusion System offers completely new possibilities with regard to the efficient degassing and extrusion of polymer melts. Additionally, this system also offers excellent dispersion performance for the introduction of gases and / or all forms of additives.

Design

The polymer melt is delivered into a large single screw drum. The drum contains 8 small extruder barrels, parallel to the main screw axis. Installed in these small extruder barrels are the “satellite” screws, which are driven by a ring gear in the main barrel. The satellite screws rotate in the opposite direction to the main screw while they rotate around the screw axis.

This disproportionately increases the surface exchange of the polymer melt. The extruder barrels which are cut into the drum of the multi rotation system are approximately 30% open (see illustrations 4 and 5) to ensure the optimum melt transfer into the barrels, so that the evacuation can take place without restrictions. Further, precise control of the melt temperature is possible as the temperatures of all the surfaces in contact with the melt can be controlled accurately.

Performance comparison

Thanks to its Multi Rotation Element, the surface area – and the surface area exchange rate – available for devolatilization are far greater than in other extrusion systems available on the market.

The surface area of the steel parts in contact with the melt is exchanged at a rate of more than 25 times greater than with a co-rotating twin screw extruder. Due to the opposite rotation direction and high speed of the satellite screws, the polymer surface area is increased by a factor of 100 compared to a single screw extruder and a factor of 40 compared to a twin screw extruder.

EXTRUSION TECHNOLOGY

MRS-Technology combined with the brand new JUMP system for reprocessing PET waste to high value products

Quick and cost-efficient reprocessing of PET industrial and post-consumer waste

 

The Gneuss Processing Unit (GPU) has been available for several years now and has proven itself on the reprocessing of bulky PET waste such as post-consumer bottle flake and industrial waste from fibre and film manufacture. This Gneuss Processing Unit consists of the Gneuss MRS extruder with its unmatched devolatilisation and decontamination performance together with the highly-efficient Gneuss Rotary Disc melt filtration systems and the Gneuss Online Viscometer for intelligent dynamic viscosity control, monitoring and logging.

Since the last „K“, Gneuss has continued with its intensive development programme so that the MRS extruder represents an extremely robust, rugged and reliable system especially tailored for recycling applications. A further development is the extension of the venting system with several openings in the barrel. Depending on the application, these additional openings can be in form of several openings in the MRS section of the barrel or venting ports in the barrel of the plasticising section.

Additionally, Gneuss has developed the new Jump system. This is installed directly downstream of the Gneuss Processing Unit and thanks to its ingenious process ensures an accurate and controllable IV boost of the PET by up to 0,3 in the melt phase. The Jump system is a compact, quick and efficient alternative to conventional SSP (solid state) systems and enables direct reintroduction of the polymer into the production process without the need to remelt the PET.

Depending on its properties, industrial waste is first fed through a shredder or a knife mill until the size is reduced so that it can be fed into the extruder. This can mean either compaction of the size reduced waste or a crammer feeder fitted directly to the extruder.

The first important processing stage: melt decontamination takes place in the extruder. With its enormous devolatilisation capacity, the MRS extruder can process PET waste with high residual moisture levels and/or contamination (such as spin finish oils) without the need for any pre-treatment of the waste. In the Multi Rotation (MRS) section of the extruder a huge polymer surface area and extremely rapid surface exchange rate under vacuum ensure that all these volatile contaminants are reliably extracted. Solid contamination is extracted with the fully-automatic and process-constant Gneuss Rotary Melt Filtration System. With filtration finenesses of down to 20 µm and below, a pure and particle – free polymer melt is guaranteed.

Subsequently, the purified and homogenised polymer is fed by means of a melt pump into the Jump, where the second important stage of the process takes place. Here, too a large surface area of the polymer melt and optimum residence time of the polymer under vacuum are decisive factors. The polymer melt is kept under vacuum as it passes over slowly rotating elements. Through control of the residence time and the speed of the rotating elements, controlled polycondensation takes place whereby controlled IV boosting takes place of typically 0,02 to maximum 0,3 dl/g. The design of the Jump system avoids the ingress of oxygen so that the yellowing effect encountered during the recycling of PET is reduced to an absolute minimum. After the PET melt has passed through a stilling chamber in the Jump system, the polymer is pumped directly into the production process (for example direct extrusion spinning, strapping) or to a pelletising (chip cutting) system. With the complete system consisting of the Gneuss Procecssing Unit with the MRS Extruder and a Jump system, industrial waste can be quickly and efficiently reprocessed in one processing step to a high quality polymer melt which can be directly processed to a finished product. The Jump system is available for different capacities of between 100 and 2.000 kg/h.

 At the “K”, Gneuss will show an MRS 90i for a throughput rate of 400 kg/h, for industrial waste recycling with intermediate material buffer, auger and crammer/feeder. The extruder is coupled to the new Jump system, model V600.

Optimisation of polyamide processing with MRS technology

Nylon applications for the MRS-Extruder

 
Nylon fibre waste also occurs as bulky, contaminated industrial waste from fibre production and the MRS90i as exhibited by Gneuss is ideally suited for reprocessing this material. The MRS technology enables the efficient extraction of volatiles which disturb the process and/or properties of the material such as spin finish oils and can even be used to extract caprolactam (which can be recovered in a further processing step) from nylon.

Depending on the processing requirements, Gneuss offers special vacuum systems which operate at vacuum levels below 1 mbar.

The polyamide treated in this way can either be pelletised with a chip cutter or extruded direct to a final product such as carpet yarn (BCF), POY, film or other products. Direct processing offers major energy (cost) savings.

At the “K”, Gneuss will show their MRS 130 extruder for processing 900 kg/h of nylon or 1.000 kg/h of PET

FILTRATION TECHNOLOGY

Fully automatic Rotary Filtration Systems with integrated back-flushing for the widest range of different applications

 
Gneuss Kunststofftechnik GmbH from Bad Oeynhausen (Germany) will present a number of modified Filtration Systems, focussing on self-cleaning (backflushing).

 

The highlight among the Filtration Systems on the Gneuss stand is the RSFgenius 330 which is the second largest Filtration System in the Gneuss range. The unit on display is destined for a BOPET line in Asia where it will operate with a filtration fineness of 20 µm. The patented RSFgenius Filtration Systems operate fully-automatically, process and pressure-constant and with a back-flushing system with unmatched efficiency. They are therefore especially suitable for demanding applications with high quality requirements.

 An additional fully automatic Rotary Filtration System RSFgenius, type RSFgenius 175 will be exhibited, together with a process-constant automatic filtration system SFXmagnus 150 and an SFXmagnus 90 R with integrated back-flushing. The SFXmagnus range of automatic screen changers is characterised by an extremely large active area in a compact unit. This range of screen changers is available with or without an integrated back-flushing piston depending on the exact requirements of the process.

 Both the RSFgenius as well as the SFXmagnus ranges have been completely revised during 2016. Modifications to the screen changer housings permit operation on a wider range of applications at higher pressures, whilst offering enlarged active filtration areas. Components and modules have been commonised between the two ranges in order to offer even more attractive value for money and shorter delivery lead times.

 New for PVC processing is the SFpvc R, a further development of the SFpvc which was premiered at the last “K” 3 years ago. Both models are designed specifically for challenging PVC recycling applications but the new SFpvc R offers for the first time an integrated self – cleaning (back flushing) system whilst maintaining absolute process – constant operation.

 Last but by no means least, Gneuss will exhibit a KF 75 screen changer at the “K”. The KF range of continuous Rotary Disc Filtration Systems is designed specifically for applications with frequent material type, grade or colour changes. The KF screen changers are especially compact and offer excellent value for money. They permit simple and quick screen changes on the fly.
