The ZSK Mc18 high performance twin screw extruder is a superlative product. With its torque of 18 Nm/cm3, it has made a name for itself on the market as a throughput champion for products with high torque requirement such as engineering plastics. The 30% increase in torque compared to the predecessor extruder model ZSK Mc PLUS leads to increases in throughput of up to 100%. Therefore the ZSK Mc18 twin screw extruder ensures production with maximum economic efficiency.

Our portolio encompasses pneumatic conveying systems, rotary and diverter valves, filters and special components which are used worldwide for numerous applications in the cement and ore processing industries as well as in power plants. Additional applications include the lime and construction industries as well as wood, ceramics and filler industries. Track-proven wear protection concepts for a long service life. Many minerals put a considerable strain on the components in bulk materials systems as they are very abrasive. Coperion masters these challenges with innovative wear protection concepts that were developed on the basis of the results of comprehensive studies. These have proven their effectiveness in practical applications many times.
A high degree of availability and a long service life with abrasive products such as cement, lime, sand, ash, aluminates etc. are only possible with an effective protection concept which not only takes into account the product characteristics but also the operating conditions. Place your confidence in the sound, in-depth specialist knowledge of Coperion – we not only have experience with more than 15,000 bulk materials, but also an in-house test centre in which various abrasion conditions can be simulated and optimum protection measures defined for your applications.
Coperion K-Tron vacuum loaders are designed to high quality standards for pneumatically conveying powders, pellets and granular materials for the bulk material handling industries. Our loaders are available in powder and pellet versions, as self-contained units or venturi style that utilized compressed air to create a vacuum convey source. P-Series venturi loaders are often used for loading hoppers as well as loss-in-weight feeder refill. They are designed to convey powders and friable materials for sanitary, pharmaceutical, food and chemical applications.
Coperion has longtime experiences and extensive know-how in the production of pelletizers. We design our pelletizing systems to exactly meet the requirements of our compounding and extrusion lines. From strand pelletizers, underwater pelletizers UG, waterring pelletizers WRG, eccentic pelletizer EGR to centric pelletizers ZGF - our pelletizing systems have been proven successfully in operation for many years. They ensure first-class product quality
The STS Mc11 series is exclusively equipped with European, Coperion branded gearboxes. Maximum screw speed has been increased from 800 to 900 min-1. To improve cleaning and facilitate quick changeovers for masterbatch applications, the STS twin screw extruder also features optimized hoppers with inserts and a redesigned die head. The screw shaft coupling is similar to the one long proven in the ZSK Mc18 series. The optimized base frame withstands torsion under maximum stress.
