Worldwide, demand for polyolefin pipes (PO pipes) is growing steadily thanks to their excellent physical and mechanical properties, able to outclass the performances of other materials. As such, they are emerging as the preferred choice for the construction of sewerage and drainage infrastructure, as well as networks for the Oil & Gas industry, eating away at the metal and cement market shares.
Bausano introduces E-GO Single Screw Extruder Concentrated Technology for PO Pipe
By virtue of its role in understanding the needs of the industry for over 70 years, Bausano introduces E-GO: the renewed range of single-screw pipe extruders for the production of PO pipes, resulting from the expertise of the Bausano technical team, which has always designed solutions synonymous with reliability and quality.
The E-GO single-screw concentrated technology makes it possible to obtain smooth, corrugated, multilayer or single-layer, rigid or flexible pipes, with a variable diameter from small to large, ensuring excellent melt homogeneity of plastic materials such as PP, PP-R, PE, HDPE, LDPE, PE-X, PE-RT, PMMA, PC, PA and PU, ideal for a wide range of applications. Several sectors are concerned, from construction to infrastructure, laying water and electricity mains and gas pipelines, from agriculture to medical and the mining, oil and automotive sectors.
Compact, efficient and high- performance: E-GO single-screw pipe extruders stand out for their screw geometry, which, in addition to featuring an ad-hoc design developed based on customers’ requirements, also introduces innovative solutions. This design choice makes it possible to obtain a high output in terms of kg/hr from the machine and to process polyolefins without excessive mechanical stress. Furthermore, the specific design of both the screw and the cylinder, along with the low-input asynchronous motors, guarantees excellent energy efficiency. In addition to that, the solution is designed to ensure operating continuity and the line’s superior life, owing to the low wear of the components, which contributes to significant overall savings.
In setting up the line, the head and extrusion tools are noteworthy, as they ensure the best pipe processing while maintaining high capacity. Also significant are the multi-stage gearbox with ground helical gears, the cylinder heating system with ceramic heating elements, the cooling system with radial fans, the gravimetric doser or sliding hopper. Plus, the Digital Extruder Control 4.0 makes it possible to monitor consumption and control the extruder and the entire line through a single user interface. Finally, in case of special processes such as co-extrusion, the E-GO single-screw PO pipe extruder can also be coupled to a two-screw solution.
