"Our new high-speed extruder
technology sets a new industry standard because of its innovative and unique
design and performance," said Dana Hanson, president of PTi. "This technology
offers our customer base a high-speed solution that delivers improved melt
quality as a result of our Super-G® Lobe screw technology and is
offered integrated with all of our advanced G-Series® Configurable
roll stand configurations."
Super-G® SGHS3000-36D is
equipped with a 500 hp motor and runs at a maximum speed of 1000 rpm while the
Super-G® SGHS3000-42D has a 600 hp
motor and runs at a maximum speed of 1200 rpm.
Each is capable of faster speeds; however, PTi establishes the maximum
rated speed based on an upper motor load threshold of 85%. For processing of PP, the Super-G® SGHS3000-36D has a production output of
approximately 3,000 lb/hr.
In addition to delivering excellent
melt quality, PTi's high-speed extruders feature carbide-lined barrels and
Colmonoy hard-faced feed screws versus case-hardened screws as featured on competitive
high-speed extruders boast an oversized feed section which promotes higher
regrind feed rates (up to +70%) along with a streamlined feed hopper with
support, delivery chute, and tramp metal protection. Other key features include
feed screw removal out-the-back of the unit, an easy-clean-out vent chamber,
and linear bearing barrel glide support (patent pending). Special air-cooled heater and blower assemblies
limit the exterior heater temperature for safety and efficiency purposes (<
110°F) versus competitive models which can be as high as 500° F.
The machine is very
energy efficient (i.e.; PP 6-7+ pounds per hour per horsepower) and features a
compact footprint of 17.5-ft x 4.5-ft (5.3m x 1.4m) for optimal space
The Super-G® High-Speed
Extruders are manufactured in the U.S. at PTi headquarters in Aurora, Ill. A
Model SGHS3000-36D will be ready later this spring for demonstrations and
customer trials at PTi's newly constructed Technology Development Center. In
order to meet customer service needs, PTi offers a comprehensive offering of
technical services including installation support, process engineering, and
operator training along with an extensive spare parts stocking program.
