Background: large manufacturer of products for multiple industries like: construction, automotive, and appliances. They Had a very hard time manually cleaning the screw after PVC extrusion. The time it took to perform screw pull was around one day.
- Technology: extrusion machine with a 60 mm screw.
- Transition: PVC natural to PVC natural.
- Goal of purging: reducing the time needed to perform screw pull (manually screw cleaning). Doing it took about a day.
- Solutions: Ramclean 500.
- Results: Ramcleam cleaned the screw as can be seen in the photos below within 20 minutes. Some “fine-tuning” was done manually immediately after. The entire process took half a day – reducing the time required by 50%!
