Coperion Corp. of Ramsey. N.J., recently highlighted its line of compounding extruders.
One new feature is called feed-enhancement technology, which Coperion claims significantly improves feeding capacity and throughput rates.
FET pulls vacuum on the feed zone of the ZSK, which is equipped with a porous, gas-permeable wall section. That can increase the intake capacity for feed-limited products, with low bulk density, by up to three times, the company said.
FET equipment can be retrofitted to the extruder.
