The XTS range of powder coating extruders has been developed by Xtrutech based on their intimate knowledge and experience of designing, building and running twin screw extruders for Powder Coatings. Xtrutech have assimilated the high volume clamshell geometry from the APV “MP – PC” machine coupled with the robustness and reliability of the W&P, ZSK series to produce the optimum machine for processing premium quality powder coatings at extremely high outputs in the most efficient and economic way

Xtrutech manufactures a range of twin screw extruders designed for research and development of powder coatings, thermoplastics, biopolymers, medical plastics, chemicals, food and pharmaceuticals. The XTS 19 bench-top line is ideal for smaller samples of 100grms, while the XTS24 and XTS35 R&D lines are floor mounted, very compact, and ideal for scale-up to production and for processing larger samples with outputs ranging from 1 to 100+ KGs/hr.

Xtrutech also provides an extensive range of bespoke ancillary equipment that can be customised to meet your exact process requirements, Ancillary equipment includes a water-cooled strand pelletiser line, a dry-face cut pelletiser, sheet and profile extrusion machines with calibration units, chill rolls, film extrusion machines, in-line lamination and thin film coating dies, cooling tunnels, caterpillar haul-offs, and coiler units
