BKG® BlueFlow™ Extrusion Pumps Type GPE / GPX

BKG® BlueFlow™ gear pumps types GPE / GPX are used in extrusion, compounding and polymerization processes.

The gear pump helps optimize the process, so the extrusion line produces optimal quality with the highest throughput possible. The gear pump has a rheologically optimized in- and outlet geometry to guarantee a very controlled transport of material. Temperature- and pressure sensors can be implemented edge-free – a distinct characteristic of all BKG BlueFlow Gear Pumps. 


Benefits:

  • Reduction of stress on the extruder by means of shifting the job of building pressure to the gear pump
  • Increase throughput rate leading to maximized production efficiency
  • Elimination of output variations and pressure pulsations, thus improvement of product quality
  • Raw material savings by means of tighter manufacturing tolerances
  • Reduction of product rejections by eliminating the pulsations in the process
  • Improvement of the dimensional accuracy in the production of sheets and profiles
  • Optimization of the surface and optical quality in the production of films, sheets and profiles
  • Increased product quality in homogeneity and pellet size in compounding applications
 
Features:
