Use the Reitruder for the compounding of heat-resistant polymers and recycled PET flakes, or for direct extrusion in extrusion lines – to save raw materials for production on a high-quality level.
Barrels and screws can optionally be combined to form a plasticizing unit with raw material feeding, venting or degassing. Geometry and length of the co-rotating screws can be adapted to the specific application. The order in which the kneading and mixing elements are arranged can be freely selected, depending on the recipe, to obtain the best possible configuration.
With low heights from 465 mm onwards, the Reitruder is suitable for new applications. The screw can be extracted also to the rear. That saves the costly disassembly of the downstream equipment and reduces set-up times by about one day.
In combination with efficient vacuum units, the Reitruder technology enables the direct processing of post-consumer PET bottle flakes - without energy and time consuming predrying.
Our Reitruder twin-screw extruder technology can handle high contents of additives and fillers. Fillers like calcium carbonate or talcum can be directly includet into the process. Thanks to the direct extrusion, you can also reduce energy costs: In the Reitruder, the polymer is processed from source material to final product in one production process, without intermediate compounding and re-melting.
