At NPE2012 in Orlando, Fla., Vinyl Compounds Ltd. bought a second extrusion line for producing rigid and soft PVC granules, from Battenfeld-Cincinnati Austria GmbH.
The first line was shipped in the fall of 2011. Vinyl Compounds, in Derbyshire, England, now runs eight compounding lines from Battenfeld-Cincinnati, based in Vienna, Austria. The relationship began in 1976.
At NPE, Vinyl Compounds purchased a BEX 2-130-22V twin-screw extruder with an energy efficient alternating-current drive, nitrided steel barrel and an electrically adjustable shear gap. The line also includes a hot cutting system, with a decentralized hot-cut pelletizer for plasticizing PVC, with a swing-mounted head and pelletizing die, and a flange-mounted rotor drive with infinitely variable speed.
Battenfeld-Cincinnati USA is in McPherson, Kan.
