Cincinnati Extrusion’s original high-performance Monos extruder series offered high output combined with melt homogeneity at low melt temperatures, especially in the production of PE 80 or PE 100 gas and water pipes and smooth or corrugated PP sewage and drainage pipes.
Now, the five models of the new Monos+ series, with screw diameters from 45 mm to 120 mm, cover the same output range from 270 to 1,800 kg/h, with optimal melt quality.
The main contributing factor in the performance upgrade of the Monos+ is the innovative design of the screw’s feed zone and the grooved feed bushing, the company said. The screw geometry has been further optimized with PFT power feed technology.
Additionally, the Monos+ is equipped with temperature regulation controlled by proportionate magnetic valve technology in the feed zone as standard, to ensure that a consistent optimal temperature for every type of material is maintained.
The Monos+ series also features maintenance-free AC motors with frequency converters. In addition to low-noise operation, these asynchronous motors offer the special benefit of low energy consumption underpartial load.
The frequency converter, control cabinet and drive system are all equipped with their own separate cooling aggregates to ensure optimal operating conditions.
As an option, Monos+ units are available with a facility for dismantling the screw from the rear.
