The "quantec" 46 G3 is the latest addition to the Buss quantec G3 kneader product range, designed for the compounding of rigid and soft PVC. With throughputs of up to 500 kg/h for compounding filled PVC, this smallest version offers flexibility and supports short change-over times for handling frequent formulation changes. Its scalability of technical parameters makes the quantec 46 G3 suitable to be used as pilot line either by PVC producers or for prototype model testing in development and research applications, says Buss.
The quantec G3 series covers PVC compounding throughputs up to 6,000 kg/h with further sizes ranging through 60 up to 110 mm screw diameter. The machine is delivered as a turnkey compounding line, with all components from feed intake to control cabinet and pelletizer mounted directly on the baseframe. This minimizes installation and commissioning time (only power, water and compressed air supplies have to be connected). In addition, the quantec 46 G3 is very compact with a footprint of only about 3 m² (30 square feet).
The quantec 46 G3 debuts this year at Chinaplas 2014 in Shanghai from April 23 to 26.
