Polymer production

Polymer production - Melt Adhesives · Engineering Plastics · Polyester · Biopolymer · Thermoplastic elastomers · PVC · Pharma & Food · Elastomer

The gentle treatment of the melt is crucial for an optimum polymer production process.

Our pumps contribute significantly to the productivity, efficiency and operational reliability of both low-viscosity and high-viscosity applications.

We react to the growing quality demands with high-performance large-area filters or screen changers with filter candles.

Our underwater pelletizer systems produce up to 36,000 kg/h, and with our strand pelletizers you achieve a throughput up to 16,000 kg/h. We offer centrifugal dryers with throughputs up to 100,000 kg/h for pellet drying.
