Gear pump designed for up to 10,000 psi

A new high-pressure gear pump (HGP) is said to be ideal for demanding extrusion processes?it is designed to process highly viscous, filled materials and can operate at pressures up to 10,000 psi and temperatures up to 600°F. The HGP accurately meters the polymer and pressure from the extruder to the die, providing consistent output, precise gauge control, and a higher quality end product. It is mounted between the extruder and the die head to eliminate any process variations initiating in the extruder.

The HGP allows low shear stress, energy consumption, and processing temperatures, and produces little scrap and high output. It operates leak-free at pressures up to 10,000 psi and temperatures up to 600°F. All parts are manufactured to ISO-9002 standards. Through-hardened tool steel gears, a pressure-balanced drive shaft, and overall heavy duty construction yield top performance in extreme processing environments.

Typical applications for the HGP include extruded sheet, coatings, pipe and profile, wire and cable, tubing, blown film, and cast film. It is ideal for use with degradable materials, FPVC, and other corrosive materials.
