eprotec is the only manufacturer with full nitriding depth on the teeth.
Thus, improved wear resistance. You profit from a much longer service life.
The true reliability of our melt pump melt-X for gear pump assisted extrusion shows under extreme conditions. Our melt-X melt pumps have flow-optimised inlets and outlets and make a broader range of applications possible.
The flow channels, slide bearings and gear teeth are carefully matched to ensure the melt is pumped in a gentle manner. Residence times are minimised. Our pumps are therefore ideal for processing thermo-sensitive, transparent and easily degradable polymers.
You can apply melt-X for the following applications:
film and thermoforming sheet
thick sheet, board
profile, pipe and hose
hot melt adhesive
you name it
Improved lubrication channels and tooth geometries are good for low shear stress in the melt and result in a small temperature rise. These developments allow the melt-X to pump melts with filler contents in excess of 80%. A prerequisite for this is, amongst other things, that the gear teeth and the slide bearings are perfectly matched.
Smaller and flow-optimised product channels increase the flow velocity. The perfectly matched components of the melt-X are the reason for its excellent self-cleaning.
eprotec gear pumps always carry 2 different threads for thermocouples on both sides of the melt pump, as well as 2 pressure sensor threads in the pump housing in the flat part of the product channel.
