Promix foam extrusion - Retrofit solution for physical foaming in extrusion

Promix foam extrusion is your unique, licence free retrofit solution to turn conventional extruders into foam extrusion lines. Promix foam extrusion allows to cut production cost of semi-finished products due to reduced raw material consumption. It is also used to substitute chemical foaming additives with eco-friendly blowing agents as CO2 or Nitrogen.

What we offer
Promix foam extrusion is a comprehensive solution including all required equipment and services to achieve your microcellular foam product:

  • Thoroughly analysis of your current extrusion process and your targeted
    foam application
  • Foaming systems for precise injection and effective solving of supercritical blowing agents
  • Extruder extensions and special foam screws
  • Reliable and very accurate gas dosing station
  • Foam dies and die modifications
  • Melt coolers for optimized foaming results
  • Pilot testing and sample production on site or in our test facilities

Thermoforming sheet
Twin walled sheet
Sandwich board

Your benefits

  • Significant cost savings due to density reductions by 15 - 60 %
  • Lower running costs and further reduced foam densities compared to chemical foaming
  • Eco-friendly light weight products, use of natural blowing agents such as
    CO2 or N2
  • Superior foam properties and process consistency
  • Easy switch from foamed to non-foamed products
  • Fast and easy installation, quick start up
  • No licence fees, no running royalties

Melt Coolers and Heat Exchangers

Do you wish to cool down your polymer melt? Promix offers you very efficient melt coolers and heat exchangers for viscous and high viscous fluids and melts.

Promix Melt Coolers improve your process

  • Very high cooling efficiency and accurate outlet melt temperature control
  • No fouling or blocking problems due to a well-mixed single flow
  • Narrow residence time distribution
  • Short installation length
  • Low pressure drop

Melt Cooler for highest efficiency

Melt Cooler concept
In cooling processes viscous fluids tend to deposit at the cooling wall sections (fouling) leading to reduced cooling efficiency. In the Promix Melt Cooler (PMC) the melt flows in a single stream through the cooler. The cooling media flows in special pipe bundles arranged similar to those of the Promix mixing elements. The intense mixing together with the very high heat exchange surface area leads to effective cooling with very limited risk of fouling. Due to a void volume of about 75 % the resulting pressure drop in a PMC is rather low. The PMC can as well be used for gentle heating with only small temperature difference between heating media and fluid.

Fill in the PMC inquiry in order to get an offer or contact our experts for further questions.
