EXTRUVAC CP

EXTRUVAC CP

The EXTRUVAC CP consists out of our proven, robust, cleanable and corrosion resistant CLAWVAC claw-type pumps complete with a selectable inlet filter and a control system.

Best fit for small and middle size extruders and perfect alternative to liquid ring pumps. High tolerance for water vapors. Various version with different filter concepts and controls available.

Typical polymers which can be handled with an EXTRUVAC CP system are Polyamide - PA, Polypropylene - PP, Polyethylene – PE, Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene – ABS and others.

EXTRUVAC VD

EXTRUDER VD

The EXTRUVAC VD systems utilize our air-cooled VARODRY screw-type pumps. These enable extruder operation down to <1 mbar. The pump can be protected by a wide range of inlet filters. The system is completed by a range of electric control options.

Vacuum system based on VARODRY are perfect fit for small size extruder with “less demanding” process like master batch production or compounding (mixing) with requirements process under pressure below 50 mbar for special plastics.

EXTRUVAC SP

EXTRUDER SP

(PET Degassing systems) – The EXTRUVAC SP was developed as lowest maintenance vacuum system for the extremely demanding degassing of PET. It has a proven track record, as well for virgin material as also for the recycling, e.g., of bottle flakes.

The system is based on the SCREWLINE screw-type vacuum pump which excels with some outstanding capabilities for this market:

  • Coldest dry pump on market. The only moderately warm internal temperatures enable water vapor handling but reduce the layer-building polymerization of extracted monomers to a minimum.
  • Cleanability – The whole compression room can be self-cleaned by the end-user on demand.

EXTRUVAC SP systems enable the user to operate his extruder non-stop for a complete campaign of several weeks without any vacuum system maintenance.

SOGEVAC

SOGEVAC

Cost effective and proven rotary vane pump. Time proven rotary vane pump for application such as vacuum forming, resin transfer molding

CLAWVAC

CLAWVAC

Dry compressing claw-pump with highest robustness for continuous rough vacuum operation. Water vapor tolerance pump with proven claw design. 

VACUBE

VACUBE

Oil-lubricated screw pump with intelligent control system. Offers lowest power consumption, especially for central vacuum systems in factories with fluctuating vacuum demand.

SCREWLINE

SCREWLINE

Cleanable, cold, vacuum pump. Dry screw pump with proven history of usage in most complicated and “dirty” application like plastics extrusion and other. 

RUVAC

RUVAC

For achieving higher pumping speed in range of 1-20 mbar roots blower if perfect counter partner for SCREWLINE or SOGEVAC. 

Dust filters

Dust filters

Dust filters improve reliability of vacuum system and protect vacuum pump.
