Wear protection

Extruders and compounders from Coperion can be used highly productively even in difficult applications with aggressive products. A suitable wear protection is the prerequisite for a consistent high product quality.

Considering of the individual requirements and economics, our experts help to find exactly the material which ensures the longest possible life and reliability.

Quality improvement of conveyed products

Coperion offers a number of solutions for improving the quality of the conveyed products. Cleaning systems, sampling systems and specific plant components such as Gamma-Bends® or sifters aim at preventing or eliminating product contaminations.

Suggested solutions are the integration of sampling systems into the existing plants. Sifters and drum screens, Gamma-Bends® to avoid angel hair or mobile sifters for cleaning selected product batches can be installed. Further potential is offered by the adaptation of the piping (surfaces/connection technique) and optimization of the pneumatic conveying.

Increasing the performance of extruders and compounders

With special modifications such as increasing the speed of the gearbox, the Coperion service experts have the possibility to considerably increase the performance of an existing extruder or compounder. The result is higher throughput rates and improved product quality.

Gearbox exchange

Together with the process section, gearboxes are one of the key components of our extruders. Our exchange gearbox can increase the speed in gearboxes and thus increase the throughput performance. This is an economical alternative to buying a more powerful extruder.

Control system modernization

We offer you the possibility of modernizing existing control systems to increase the operational reliability of compounders and extruders and materials handling systems, simplify their operation and extend the user functions.

By replacing outdated components we can meet all customer requirements, from standard to individual solutions, from “standalone” systems to complex solutions for turnkey compounding plants.

We adapt interfaces to master control systems, adapt existing old plants to new plants and develop replacement concepts for discontinued control system components.
