Cleaning compound for compounding
|The multitude of colour- and material changes, and the ever shorter production runs caused by Just-In-Time production require an effective and efficient cleaning compound.|
ECONOCLEAN cleans extruders thoroughly. Residues of previous production runs or black specks, caused by burnt resin, will be removed by ECONOCLEAN from extruder, cylinder and die. Also pigments, that have the tendency to adhere to screw and cylinder wall will be removed.
The unique formulation of ECONOCLEAN makes that it even reaches into the dead angles of extruder and die, in single as well as in twinscrew extruders ! Downtime will be limited, and start-ups are minimised before producing high quality film again in the next production run. And, of course, the amount of scrap will be reduced considerably.
Even when pulling the screw for inspection, total time for cleaning will be reduced when a cleaning with ECONOCLEAN is performed first.
|Less downtime||ECONOCLEAN works effective, and reduces the need for pulling the screw.|
|Shorter start-up time||ECONOCLEAN removes black specks effectively, making the start-up phase for the next run shorter, causing|
|Reduced loss of material||through shorter start-up periods, and |
|Less cleaning compound||ECONOCLEAN needs only 1½ to 2 times the cylinder contents for an effective cleaning.|
|Concentrated||ECONOCLEAN is available in ready-for-use formulations, but also as a concentrate.|
|Econoclean has already proven its effectiveness with commonly used materials like HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, EVA, PA, EAA, EMA, PP, PET/PBT, PC, PS, EVOH, TPE, PVC etc.|

|ECONOCLEAN||is a resin that is as easily processable as plastics.|
|ECONOCLEAN||is composed of materials that have the GRAS classification (FDA norm for Generally Recognized As Safe).|
|ECONOCLEAN||is odourless, also when processed. No special precautions are required.|
|The residue is a plastic with inert minerals, which can be processed as such.|
|ECONOCLEAN||is available in 25 kg quantities, in recyclable carton boxes with a plastic liner.|
|ECONOCLEAN will foam slightly in the extruder, so it reaches into the dead corners of the extruder and die. Burnt residues are released from screw and cylinder wall through a chemical reaction, and extruded by the purging properties of ECONOCLEAN. ECONOCLEAN also has a polishing (NOT abrasive) effect, which leaves the surfaces inside the extruder clean and smooth.|
Regular preventive maintenance controls the building up of burnt residues, and makes every cleaning more effective.
