Icma installs two compounding lines for appliance manufacturer in Brazil

Italy-based Icma San Giorgio has designed and installed two complete compounding systems for a major global appliance manufacturer. The new lines are said to produce mineral-filled compounds at high volume using Icma’s co-rotating extruders with integral material handling, dosing and cutting units.

The turnkey system encompassed complete project engineering and support to integrate the lines with all related factory systems including material handling, compounding and granulation systems, as well as final compound storage and distribution management. At the core of the plant are two co-rotating extruders, each line capable of producing in excess of 3,000 kg/hour of mineral-filled compounds. The system features energy-saving enhancements and noise deadening properties built into the co-rotating extruders and cutting units, says Icma.

The lines were built and tested at Icma’’s premises in Milan prior to installation and final start-up at the customer’’s site in South America.

“We have developed specific, in-depth experience in the ‘white goods’ industry over the years. Appliance manufacturers recognise that our high-efficiency compounding lines can make a substantial difference in productivity and energy savings” Giorgio Colombo, Managing Director of Icma said.
