Conveyor belt

The Xplore conveyor belt pro (CB Pro) unit is specially designed to be used to guide polymer strands directly from a smaller extruder or compounder die. The conveyor belt pro does fit perfectly to our MC 5, MC 15 HT and MC 40. The belt speed of the conveyor belt pro is adjustable, allowing it to be precisely tailored to each individual application.

Instead of being conventionally extruded into a water bath, the polymer strand is extruded directly onto a non-sticking PTFE conveyor belt, which carefully, in a controlled manner, draws the fragile nascent strands. This controlled drawing of the strands, while they are still in a non-solid state, prevents breaks or cracks in the strands. This enables the polymer strand to cool down in a predetermined shape ready for a subsequent analysing step or to be directly fed into a small pelletizer.

Benefits

  • Large operating window
  • Prolonged draw rates possible; as low as 1 m/min
  • Gentle, straight-line strand cool down avoids strand breaks for a subsequent analysing or pelletising step
  • Can be retrofitted into existing extrusion lines
