BKG® was founded in 1994 in Muenster, Germany with one goal in mind, provide customers will an innovative underwater pelletizing solution. Since then, the company has continued to provide the industry with complete turn-key pelletizing systems with throughputs of 2 – 35,000 kg/hr. Our underwater pelletizing solutions can effectively and efficiently process all materials that have thermoplastic features, even for the most demanding polymers that the industry processes today.
BKG® was aquired by Nordson Corporation in 2013 and is now part of Nordson’s Polymer Processing Systems product line and is a leading international supplier of innovative underwater and water-ring pelletizing systems and pellet dryers for extrusion and polymerization.
As one of the many examples of leading edge technology developed by Nordson, BKG®’s CrystallCut® technology allows for a highly economical crystallization of PET. With this patented in-line crystallization process, pelletizing and crystallization are completed in just one step. No additional energy is needed. The crystallization is effected only by the inherent heat of the PET pellets.
Nordson Corporation´s Polymer Processing System product offering provides a broad range of technologies for melting, conditioning, dispensing and giving shape to plastics. Nordson delivers a full range of precision melt stream products — from screws and barrels for extrusion and injection molding — to filtration systems, pumps, and valves — to the extrusion dies and pelletizing systems to meet the constantly evolving needs of the polymer industry.
All of the business that Nordson Corporation has acquired leverages the collective plastics industry experience from a series of strategic acquisitions to offer a unique, broad portfolio of industry-leading technologies. They excel in precision engineering, and place a high value on supporting customers before and after the sale. Nordson’s customers will benefit from the wide range of products, global capabilities for manufacturing and localized service, and from the strategy of bringing together complementary technologies to optimize polymer processing.
Nordson Corporation has extensive resources that will benefit their customers. With operations in more than 30 countries, Nordson provides a global base for increasing localized access to sales and technical services. The company’s strong support and investment in R&D provides a continuous flow of innovations in components for plastics processing, from new screw and barrel technologies to breakthroughs in filtration systems, pumps, pelletizers and extrusion and coating dies.
