PSI-Polymer Systems Inc. said its high-pressure gear pump is designed to process highly viscous, filled materials, while operating at up to 10,000 pounds per square inch and at temperatures of up to 600° F.
For PSI of Hickory, N.C., the HGP is an addition to its existing gear pump line. The company's extrusion gear pump operates on extrusion lines with pressures of up to 5,000 psi.
Mounted between the extruder and the die gear, the HGP accurately meters the polymer and pressure from the extruder to the die, the firm said.
Typical applications include sheet, coatings, pipe and profile, wire and cable, tubing and blown and cast film.
All parts are manufactured to ISO 9002 standards. The heavy-duty, high-pressure gear pump features through-hardened tool-steel gears and a pressure-balanced drive shaft.
