Our products

Product category: Extrusion lines for compounding


The polymer industry’s innovation and earnings potential lies in the production of extremely high quality compounds. End products should be reinforced, scratch-resistant, flame-retardant, weather-resistant and at the same time resource-saving. This requires a compounder which easily and thoroughly mixes in significant amounts of additives. Meet COMPEO, the new state-of-the-art compounder delivering more diversity in its application, greater flexibility in process engineering, and increased value added in compound manufacturing.

PCS Compounder for Powder Coatings

The extended BUSS Kneader series PCS sets benchmarks for profitability, availability and user-friendly handling. Whilst it retains the proven operating principle of the BUSS Kneader the process section in particular has undergone distinct modification.

The Buss Kneader PCS 46 is a versatile, compact small-scale compounding extruder for enhanced R&D work and pilot production campaigns. Its peer, the BUSS Laboratory Kneader PCS 30, is a versatile, compact small-scale compounding extruder for research and development, colour matching and customer sampling.

LR Compounder for Foodstuffs

The first Buss Kneader for food processing was delivered in 1948 to a chocolate manufacturer. Gentle working, efficient self-cleaning and easy accessibility to the process zone, typical of these machines, have always been indispensable requirements in this field.

Today, Buss Kneaders are used in the food industry for compounding chocolate and croquant doughs, producing sugar comprimates and soft candies, as well as for the preparation of chewing gum base, chewing gum and bubble gum. Buss LR Kneaders for the food industry have a larger free volume (Do / Di = 1.81) than those used in the plastics industry, a smaller diameter/stroke ratio (Do / H = 4.0), and a lower shear rate.
