Maag Group’s technologies
Maag Group, a broadly diversified global solutions provider of Pump & Filtration Systems, Pelletising & Pulverising Systems, Recycling Systems and Digitalisation for use in the polymer industry is showing its latest innovations.
The highlight of the booth will be the ERF350, a high-performance melt filter for the filtration of heavily contaminated polymer feedstock. The filter is self-cleaning with a rotating, perforated drum, through which there is a continuous flow of melt from the outside to the inside. A scraper removes contaminants that are held back on the surface and feeds them to the discharge system. This enables the filter to operate automatically, without disruptions over long periods and without having to replace the screen. The advantages: ultra-low melt losses and good mixing and homogenising of the melt. Another highlight in the Maag Group booth is the Pearlo underwater pelletising system for the highly efficient and flexible production of spherical pellets with throughputs of up to 36,000 kg/h. Compact and modularly structured, it requires only a very small footprint. Electronically controlled EAC technology guarantees precise pressure of the pelletising knives during operation, thereby enabling long runtimes free of interruptions with consistently high pellet quality.
In the same equipment segment, Maag Group shows a Baoli-3 third-generation dry-cut pelletiser for processing hard and soft materials. The key components of these pelletisers are manufactured in Germany, and all versions meet the requirements of applicable safety standards in Germany. Maag Group has more than 60 years’ experience in pelletisers and has already installed around 800 Baoli pelletisers in China. As with previous Baoli generations, the automated cutting chamber locking system enables fast handling while supporting operator safety. From its range of gear pumps, Maag Group will be presenting the extrex gear pump in x6 class design. As with all x6 versions, Maag Group has completely re-engineered and redesigned the components, from the shafts through to the bearings and seals, and optimised the interaction of the components. Specially developed gear teeth with low compression allow very high pressures to be achieved with low shear rates. The result is a further increase in achievable product quality, volumetric efficiency, as well as production consistency and safety.
