XTS56 Twin Screw Extruder

The XTS56 is one of the largest production extruders in the XTS range, designed with high free volume clamshell geometry combined with a robust and reliable high-torque drive. This makes XTS extruders ideal for high-output and efficient powder coating production.

Barrels come in standard length of 24D and in 6D increments up to 54L/D for more complex applications.

All XTS extruders have been designed to pair seamlessly with an XTS cooling system. The XTS56 has the option of either an XTDC Drum Cooler or XTCC Cooling Conveyor. The XTDC5 Drum Cooler offers compact and efficient cooling. Whereas, the XTCC 1.2m X 6m cooling conveyor features an all-stainless-steel design to support optimum cooling efficiency, and to protect the conveyor from corrosion and contamination.

  • Features
    • High free volume coupled with high power enhances flexibility in speed, residence time and output.
    • Clamshell barrel which allows essential access to the screws and shafts.
    • Individually controlled heating zones (3D or 6D) for more control over your process.
    • A split stuffing box gives quick access to shafts during removal and refitting.
    • Oil impregnated brass split bushes to stop the material from flowing backwards towards your gearbox.
    • Segmented Xtra Volume Screw elements to optimise the feeding of fines and low bulk density formulations.
    • An industry proven gearbox from PIV to ensure reliability of high torque transmission.
    • Insert liners which are cost effective to replace and can be made from wear resistant materials.
    • Torque limiter coupling to protect the gearbox, shafts, and screws.
    • Super robust backing blocks with excellent control over heating and cooling.
    • AC water-cooled motor offers highly efficient torque transmission and low maintenance.
    • PLC controlled with operator friendly HMI screens.
