High-performance Systems for Powder Coating Compounding

In answer to the increased requirements on processing powder coatings, BUSS has succeeded in significantly improving performance aspects of previous BUSS Kneader models.

As a result of extended processing length and higher screw speed not only the output has been enormous raised also the range of formulations has been extremely enlarged, and this without changing the screw configuration. Above all the proven PCS screw geometry has an excellent self-cleaning effect which allows quick color and formulation changes.

PVC Pelletizing

Melt compounding and pelletizing is used in instances where direct extrusion of dry-blend into a finished part is not possible or economical. The reasons may be frequent product changes, small batch sizes, difficult processing conditions, problematic storage or housekeeping and other logistical issues.

The two-stage BUSS systems are equipped with a volumetric feeder, a vacuum degassing unit and a pelletizer and facilitate independent optimization of the melt compounding and pelletizing steps.
