High output extruder offers next-level groove feed performance
The SHO extruder from Davis-Standard saves space while offering outputs claimed to be up to 20 percent higher than existing groove feed models.
The SHO is engineered with an optimized feed section and energy-efficient DSB® barrier screw. This is beneficial for high-viscosity HDPE applications such as pipe extrusion, where lower melt temperatures, reduced power consumption and improved energy efficiency are important.
Improving energy efficiency equates to tangible savings for your operation while reducing your carbon footprint, said John Christiano, VP technology.
The SHO builds upon our existing groove feed technology with a more streamlined, compact footprint and even greater performance in terms of output and energy savings.
The SHO features Davis-Standard's next-generation gear case to optimize production space, along with a streamlined hopper, low-profile power panel and rugged base; all components are fully enclosed. Advantages include improvements in output, output consistency, melt quality, reduced purging/changeover time and energy efficiency. It is available in sizes ranging from 50 to 150mm (2" to 6") with an L/D of 42:1.
