French equipment supplier Guerin Systems, which is owned by Groupe Sidel, is marketing a turnkey system to compound PVC and other plastics.
Guerin designs the automated powder-handling system to customer requirements. The company is targeting firms that do in-house compounding, such as makers of PVC pipe and window profiles, or dry blending.
All ingredients are weighed. A microdosing station allows small amounts of liquids or solids to be added to each batch, with an accuracy level of 5 grams. Ingredients are mixed after weighing.
Guerin's U.S. headquarters is at Sidel Inc. in Norcross, Ga.
