CP Series II™ Compact Processor

CP Series II™ Compact Processor

The CP Series II™ Compact Processor is a highly productive compounder designed specifically for top quality dispersion of highly filled, highly pigmented materials. It contains an independently controlled continuous mixer and an extruder system.

The Compact Processor is able to process highly abrasive materials outperforming other processors. It is designed to incorporate various types of feeding systems and pellet formation components for versatility making its applications virtually unlimited.

Key Features Include:

Two counter rotating, non-intermeshing rotors; available in various pairings and geometries
The mixing chamber barrel incorporates numerous features which enhance the CP’s processing performance, operation and maintenance
A hot feed pumping extruder, with minimal residence timeIndividual drive motors for mixer and extruder means that the mixing function can be optimized independent of the pumping function
The control system can be set in automatic or adjusted manually during operation

Hot Feed Extruders

Hot Feed Extruders

The Hot Feed Extruder is designed to take the material from the Farrel Continuous Mixer (FCM™). The oversized hopper opening insures efficient feeding. The continuous feed of material permits orientation of these extruders either parallel or at right angles to the axis of the Continuous Mixer rotors.

Key Features Include:

Connecting chutes between the mixer and the extruder are included as standard equipment
These chutes have a divert door for redirecting start-up and shutdown material from the FCM™Chutes also have an access door and observation windows
Standard options include: specially sealed designs suitable for nitrogen purging or vacuum application, illumination of the interior and adaptation for monitoring of material in-feed
Custom designed screw geometry (L/D, vented, mixing)
Optimized pusher for uniform ingestion

Reactor Fed Extruders

Reactor Fed Extruders

The Reactor Fed Extruders are designed to receive the hot melt stream coming directly from a reactor. The hopper cylinder and its support are designed to carry the weight of a gravity feed vessel.

Key Features Include:

Seals are incorporated in the rear of the hopper cylinder to minimize leakage of polymer with the screw turning or stationary
Rear vented hopper cylinders are available to aid in degassing the melt
Injection ports for introducing additives in masterbatch or liquid form can be furnished in hopper and forward cylinders
Mixing screws are often used to enhance the incorporation of these additives

A special “melt homogenizing” extruder design which modifies LDPE to improve melt flow characteristics and optimal properties can be furnished.

Underwater Pelletizer

Underwater Pelletizer

Farrel Underwater Pelletizers incorporate numerous innovative processing, mechanical and control features that assure consistent performance, quality pellet output, efficient operation and simplified maintenance. Choose between the standard electrically powered “C” model or the hydraulically powered “H” model. Both incorporate: a quick opening cutting chamber, hydraulic locking and unlocking, hydraulic opening and closing of the pelletizer and automatic retention of the cutter shaft alignment.

Key Features Include:

All pellet plates are custom designed to meet specific processing requirements. The cutting face can be provided with a selection of different hard metal surfacing materials in the form of tiles, nibs, segments or as a solid coating
Internal heating configuration is custom-designed based on the application and the available heating medium (steam or other thermal fluid)
Cutter shaft and knife alignment mechanism allow for precise alignment of the cutter shaft axis to the cutting face of the pellet plate
Alignment retention provided by hydraulically activated mechanical clamps that lock the water chamber and the cutter housing assembly to the pellet plate

LCM Long Continuous Mixer

LCM Long Continuous Mixer

The LCM design mixer includes a two-stage mixing chamber in combination with 10 L/D long rotors.

Primary mixing stage features include:

Dry blending of the polymer with all other ingredients
Preheating of a dry blend
Breakdown of larger agglomerates by friction between polymer particles

Secondary mixing stage features include:

Intensive shear between the rotor tips and chamber wall melts the polymer and provides dispersive mixing to incorporate the other ingredients
Back mixing, via longitudinal cut-back, pushes the material back and forth along rotors’ axes for distributive mixing
Uniformity is achieved in the final kneading step by the rolling action between the two rotors. After this step, the material leaves the mixing chamber

FCM™, Farrel Continuous Mixer

FCM™, Farrel Continuous Mixer

The FCM™ is available in a range of sizes, design types, and options to meet an array of production needs from pilot/laboratory to world scale production. All ingredients can be fed into the mixer separately or as a pre-blend. Liquids can be fed with the powder and pellets or injected directly into the mixing chamber at selected locations. The chamber can be vented at various locations. High shear rates at adjustable levels are applied to the mixture to melt, disperse, and distribute the ingredients evenly within the polymer matrix.

Key Features Include:

Counter-rotating, non-intermeshing rotors running at synchronous speed. This gives a large free volume for material circulation enabling superior distributive mixing
Unique rotor geometry, speed and clearances enable superior dispersive mixing
Mixing intensity can be selected as functions of rotor speed, working volume, thermal conditions and residence time
Large rotor tip-to-wall clearance minimizes the effect of wear
Large feed opening allows for high filler loadings and low bulk density materials
PLC-based controls with a touch screen can expand to include a supervisory system
Modular components result in easy maintenance and higher productivityEnergy efficient with low operating costs

UMSD Side Discharge Mixer

UMSD Side Discharge Continuous Mixer

The UMSD, Side Discharge Continuous Mixer, is a highly advanced mixer for high capacity processing of polyethylene, polypropylene and other primary plastics in the petrochemical industry. This processing line can work as a one-stage or two stage mixer and can be configured with a Farrel Melt Pump (FMP™), Divert Valve, Screen Changer and C-Series Underwater Pelletizer.

Key Features Include:

The control system adjusts parameters automatically to meet specific energy or discharge pressure set points
Externally adjustable mixing intensity
Multiple temperature control zones
 Available with various L / D design
