SINGLE-STEP WPC EXTRUSION

Reifenhauser’s new Generation II BiTrudex system is an energy-efficient direct extrusion system for WPC materials in which all raw materials (plastic, wood or other natural fibres) are combined in a single step and directly extruded, eliminating the common two-step process.

Designed as an improvement on the company’s Generation I BiTrudex system, Generation II offers energy savings of up to 30 per cent over competing extruders, and costs 30 per cent less than the Generation I system. It also offers increased flexibility and optimised process control due to an additional

tional gravimetric plastic component throughput measurement.
