Catalyst and Catalyst Carrier Compounds

First-class Technology

Catalyst and catalyst carrier compounds for exhaust treatment or chemical processes are produced continuously using twin screw extruders. This comprises both bulk material catalysts as rods with different cross-sectional shapes, and directly extruded honeycomb structures.

Coperion and Coperion K-Tron provide a comprehensive technology range for the production of catalyst and catalyst carrier compounds. This includes high accurate Coperion K-Tron feeders, ZSK twin screw extruders as well as comprehensive peripheral equipment.

Coperion ZSK Extruder


Thanks to its extensive range of material solutions, Coperion's ZSK twin screw extruder is particularly suited to producing catalyst and catalyst carrier compounds. Our experts choose the precise combination of materials to ensure that the components are reliable and durable, even for raw materials with seriously abrasive and corrosive properties such as silicium carbides and acids.
The ZSK twin screw extruder gently processes the products. In order to adhere to very low temperature limits, the machines are able to be operated with cooling media at well below 0 °C.
