Corr Plastik: Pipe production doubles in Brazil

PVC pipe producer Corr Plastik Industrial (Cabreuva / Brazil) has recently added four pipe extrusion lines from KraussMaffei Berstorff (Hannover / Germany; www.berstorff.com) at its new 60,000 m² facility near Maceió / Brazil. Two double- and two single-strand “Performance” lines were installed in late 2009 as part of the company’s plan to double its production capacity.

The lines produce pipe with an outside diameter of 20 mm to 250 mm and are capable of producing up to 33,600 t/y. In January 2010, the Brazilian company further boosted production at the plant by 3,600 t/y with a line for corrugated pipe.
