The processor, founded in 1983, again tapped plastics processing machinery manufacturer KraussMaffei Berstorff (Munich, Germany) for its extrusion machinery needs, in this instance acquiring four pipe extrusion lines for its new 7500m2 facility on the site. These will be used to process water, irrigation, and drainage pipes. Two of the new lines were double-strand ones built around KMD 75-36/R twin-screw extruders, with the other two single-strand lines.

The lines are configured to produce pipe with an outer diameter of 20-250 mm and are capable of processing up to 2800 tonnes of PVC pipe each month.

Corr Plastik also added a new line for corrugated pipe at the new facility. All told, the five new lines near Maceió, in addition to those in its main facility in Cabreúva in São Paulo, brings Corr Plastik's monthly pipe output to 6000 tonnes. —[email protected]
