The short conical crossheads, typical from Erocarb, achieves a high concentricity in fixed-centring or with the fine -tuning device drives the success. Larger models use fix and manual centring.
The distributors are defined for the specific polymers to be used: PE, PVC, TPU, HFFR, EPDM …
Many Hastelloy® crossheads are also manufactured for extrusion of fluoropolymer. In this case additional heaters are implemented in order to guarantee proper temperature level for FEP, PFA, ETFE …
Beside standard crossheads, Erocarb also sells tailor made solutions designed by internal engineers. In any case, the projects are submitted to customers before any manufacturing process. 3D views and models allow the review of solutions at an early stage of the project and saves time during assembling process.
