New heat-resistent feed rollerFor an optimized pelletizing process
Automatik Plastics Machinery launches the new elastomer feed roller EL 24 for pelletizing systems with temperature resistance up to 170°C.
This elastomer feed roller is especially designed to meet high demands in terms of abrasion and thermal loading. It has a higher thermal load capacity compared to conventional rollers in use.
The EL 24 also offers better frictional resistance and compression behavior than conventional elastomer feed rollers. The new roller is also easy to be recognized due to its white color. In addition, and important for the semiconductor industry, it is also silicon-free.
In compounding and masterbatch processes, feed rollers are exposed to various materials. The products are soft, brittle, abrasive and/ or very hot. Demands on the feed rollers are very high, particularly in relation to abrasive materials incorporating reinforcers such as fiber-glass or high temperature additives.
Besides that, feed rollers are also subject to
