Melt-pumps for extrusion and compounding

melt-pumps eproteceprotec's melt-pumps are  installed in all applications in extrusion and compounding of plastics. Melt-pumps are installed to build-up constant pressure and guarantee constant output. Extruder screw is released from pressure, this enables higher out output and enhance flexibility of process. Smooth, efficient and constant pumping of plastic melt through extrusion-die guarantees product quality and dimension. eprotec offers its melt-pumps also together with drive-unit and control.

Retrofitting of extrusion-lines with melt-pumps leads primarily to a constant throughput. This is a requirement for dimension stability of extruded product. Retrofitting with melt-pumps leads mostly to higher output of extrusion-line. With a melt-pump installed in extrusion-line the screw is not anymore responsible for the full pressure build-up.


Spare-parts for melt-pumps no matter who original supplier was:

melt-pump spare partsMain parts of melt-pumps are pump body, gears, bearings, special shaft seals and side covers. These are the spare-parts eprotec offers for nearly all existing pumps in the market. No matter who the original supplier was. These spare-parts are delivered cost-effectively and quickly.

Specifically designed for application:

eprotec melt-pumps are designed precisely for every application. According viscosity, throughput, processing temperature the pump-size, surface coating, tolerances e.g. are determined. Type and amount of fillers determine coating and/or bearing materials, etc.
