Plant for polyolefin production

Competence along the entire value-added chain

We supply customized solutions for handling of powdered and pelletized products for main and sub-systems to the plastics industry along the entire process chain downstream of polymerization.

The range of services we offer not only covers pneumatic and hydraulic conveying processes, but also all the process stages associated with, such as cooling, monomer discharge (degassing), blending, screening, cleaning, heating/cooling through to packaging and logistics systems.

Applications include the production of plastics intermediate products such as PTA, BPA, adipic acid etc. as well as polyolefin and engineering plastics manufacturing plants.

The competence, to manage complexity and to integrate processes

The more complicated the processes and structures, the more important it is to have a competent experienced and reliable partner at your side.

From reactor charging and discharge though to additive handling in extrusion processes and logistics - Coperion is the number one contact for all solutions in the field of bulk materials handling for all types of plastics.

Our project management team has a wide-ranging scope of engineering skills and know-how at their disposal with all the facets of special knowledge and competence needed for the implementation of both complete plants and individual process stages.

Our global network and the experience of our project managers at all our sites ensure a constant transfer of knowledge which offers you a host of advantages. We provide tailored systems in all sizes, always paying attention to project schedule and the highest standard of quality. Local sourcing and cooperation with our global purchasing organization keep costs as low as possible.
