Foam Extrusion Systems and CO2/N2 Gas dosing stations

Promix foam extrusion - comprehensive solutions for physical foaming in extrusion
Promix foam extrusion is a unique, licence free technical concept for foam extrusion. Promix foam extrusion allows to cut production cost of semi-finished products due to reduced raw material consumption. It is also used to substitute chemical foaming additives with eco-friendly blowing agents as CO2 or Nitrogen.

CO2 and N2 Gas dosing stations for physical foaming
Promix Gas Dosing Stations for physical foaming have been developed to suit the specific needs of foam extrusion applications. Extremly high dosing accuracy, reliability and easy operation are the key features of Promix gas dosing systems. No matter if process monitoring with trend charts and user settable alarms, data acquisition, flow match with extruder output and many more, Promix gas dosing units provide all the required features for state of the art foam production. Furthermore, implementation in extruder control via fieldbus system is also possible.

Main characteristics Promix gas dosing stations
Massflow from 5 g/h up to 12 kg/h
Delivery pressure up to 700 bar
Convenient operation via 12,1” Touch Screen
User settable limits for full process control
Trend charts for pressure and flow over time
“Flow match” function to synchronize mass flow with extruder output
Implementation in extruder control via fieldbus system possible
Data acquisition via USB port
Remote maintenance capability

Key components for the production of XPS, XPE, XPP, XPET low density foams / P1 cooling mixer

Promix offers relevant key components to optimize production of low density foams as for example fabrication of XPS insulation boards, XPE foam film or XPP, EPE thermoforming sheet. Implementing Promix key equipment generally results in lower foam densities, improved cell structure and an increased line output, leading altogether to significantly lower production cost. Whether it is a tandem or long single screw line, thermal insulation boards, packaging film or insulation for tubes or pipes: we will analyse your current line concept and are going to propose a solution to increase your profitability.

Application examples
XPS Insulating board
XPE foam film and profile
PS foam for food packaging (XPE)

P1 Cooling Mixer
Promix P1 Cooling mixer technology is a unique combination of a highly efficient static mixer and a powerful cooler. The novel patent-registered technology pushes the boundary when it comes to cooling of polymer melt and other viscous fluids. The simultaneously occurring mixing and cooling effects in the P1 cooling mixer allow a very efficient cooling very close to the solidification point of the melt without the risk of freezing or building of deposits. The melt temperature is homogenized over the whole cross section. Depending on process requirements, the ideal melt temperature can be exactly adjusted and kept constant over time.

Your benefits
Extremely efficient cooling of polymer melt and other viscous fluids very close to the solidification point
Non-sensitive against building of deposits and "freezing"
Exact temperature control and uniform temperature distribution at the outlet
Very robust design
Very gentle cooling and heating of residence time critical fluids
Unique self-cleaning properties for example when effecting a color change

Promix Visco-P - Accurate inline viscosity measurement and real time quality control

Promix Visco-P is a „real“ inline viscometer which measures viscosity directly in the melt stream and thus requires no bypass. The measurement takes place in real time and allows continuous monitoring of raw material quality and process conditions. The device measures an exact viscosity under real extrusion conditions, which means it is considering temperature and pressure plus the real composition of the polymer melt. Recommended to safely and reliably detect viscosity of melt containing foaming agents.

Your benefits
Accurate inline viscosity measurement
Directly in the melt stream, no bypass required
Continuous monitoring of raw material quality and process conditions in real time
Works with polymer melt containing foaming agents
MFI calculation mode
Combination with Promix Static Mixer leads to additional value by improved melt and temperature homogeneity
