HDPE pipe innovations highlight Plast presentation

A novel high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe extrusion line for pressure water or gas pipe production draws attention to this equipment manufacturer's presentation during the Plast 2006 show in Milan later this month. The high-output line includes built-in product quality control for automatic thickness and diameter measurement, as well as a gravimetric dosing system for thrifty resin use.

The line is composed of a 65-mm-diameter, 32:1 L/D single-screw extruder, and a 20-mm-diameter, 20:1 L/D coextruder for color line production on the pipes. The extruder heads for HDPE and polypropylene/PEX pipes are equipped with an innovative extendable die. The line has an output of up to 400 kg/hr for pipes ranging in thickness from 10-65 mm in diameter. Luigi Bandera SpA Costruzioni Meccaniche, Busto Arsizio, Italy; +39 0331 398111
