Your benefit with a MAS extrusion line


The unique conical co-rotating design of the MAS extruder with it’s large feeding opening results in a huge intake volume. The conical design of the twin screw extruder enables processing of a wider range of materials, not only regrinds and pellets but also materials with low bulk densities of down to 30 kg/m³.


The MAS conical co-rotating twin screw extruder in direct comparison with a parallel twin screw extruder from another manufacturer shows, based on information from our customers from Netherlands and Germany, that a parallel twin screw extruder has a 18% higher energy consumption. The MAS extrusion line in comparison with a parallel twin screw extruder processing comparable throughput ranges (1,800 kg/h) shows that the MAS extruder has lower energy consumption. The specific energy consumption of 0,1989 kWh/kg from the MAS extruder compete with the 0,3014 kWh/kg energy consumption of a parallel twin screw extruder. The resulting calculation with an estimated price per kWh of 0,10 Euro and 8000 operating hours per annum result in energy savings of more than 140,000 Euro per annum.


The MAS extruder has the capabilities of processing low bulk density materials of 30 kg/m³ without the need for pre-densification using an agglomorator or compactor system.  


One essential advantage of the MAS extruder is the short length of the processing unit. The result being a short residence time of the material in the extruder which positively affects the quality, the lowers energy consumption, lowers thermal degradation, and improves colour values (better B*-Value) of the final product. In addition, colour changes can be realized very quickly. 


The conical design of the MAS extrusion line allows a higher filling degree of the screw and hence a higher specific throughput (kg/rpm).  Additionally, with a MAS extruder you can realize high throughput with the same screw speed. Whereas parallel twin screw extruders have to increase the screw speed in order to increase the throughput, which results in higher shear rates and higher melt temperatures which in turn leads to lower quality and higher energy consumption. The MAS extruder allows high throughput rates with low screw speeds, resulting in less shear, less thermal degradation, and lower specific energy consumption.
