Extraction pumps

Polymer Handling

The gentle treatment of the melt is crucial for an optimal polymer production process. MAAG pumps contribute significantly to the productivity, efficiency and operational reliability of both low-viscosity and high-viscosity applications.

The use of extraction pumps for polymer production

The MAAG vacorex® x⁶ class and viscorex® polymer extraction gear pumps ideally fulfill modern polymer production processes, which require polymer pumps that can gently discharge against high pressure despite very low fill level and high vacuum conditions in the reactor/devolatilization vessel.

The MAAG vacorex⁶ polymer extraction pumps process a wide range of different polymer grades without affecting their quality. Reliable, requiring little maintenance, and robust enough to withstand the rigors of years of operation, the vacorex⁶ polymer gear pump is the ideal solution for such applications.

The MAAG polymer extraction pump systems and viscorex® transfer gear pumps efficiently convey plastic melts with a constant, precise flow. As they feature the excellent fill behavior and short residence times these pumps are the ideal solution for this type of polymer application.

Their high efficiency and long service life will enhance the capacity and availability of your polymer production line.

Advantages of our extraction pumps
