Future Perspectives & Global Challenges:
Resource Efficiency

Product category: Melt pumps


Brand new thought: The HENSCHEL melt pump. Higher throughput. Half the energy consumption. All the same time. 

The Xtreamor® ensures a constant process pressure with a minimum rise of the material temperature. Highly filled media with more than 80% filler content make as little a challenge as solid particles in the material. Even at high viscosities, only a small pre pressure is required for feeding the pump and thus relieves the upstream extruder considerably.

To meet the specific requirements in mass production, it is our aim to sustainably verify the jointly developed system solutions in our test lab.

The slightly different process 

The task of the single or twin screw extruder in the extrusion process is to melt, homogenize, compound and degas the material. When the necessary pressure needed by the attached extrusion tools like nozzles, dies and pelletizers, is too high for an extruder or compounding line, then single screw discharge extruders or gear pumps are used to build-up the needed pressure.  

In compounding or extrusion lines, which are primarily designed for high through puts, the polymer is very often stressed up to the breaking point. Unnecessary shearing of the polymer caused by the pressure build-up device damages the product. Another determining factor concerning the product quality is the conveying continuity of the device, building the needed pressure.

Our solution in a new dimension

With the new Xtreamor® melt pump, developed by Henschel, the pressure build-up happens by specially designed and adjusted to the melt properties, twin screws. The Xtreamor® works with the lowest possible pre pressure due to the design-conditioned forced conveying. So the compounder respectively the extruder is relieved of a lot of workload.
