1 Green performance characteristics of WSJP95-1200PET twin-screw extrusion sheet extrusion equipment

Compared with the domestic similar equipment, the WSJP95-1200PET twin-screw extruding sheet unit has an overall energy saving increase of more than 30-40%. (The domestic similar equipment is 95 models, the general output is 500 kg per hour, while the output of new products developed by Dacheng is 1200 kg per hour); three-stage vacuum exhaust technology and oil and gas separation technology are adopted, eliminating the need for a crystallization drying system. It not only reduces the footprint of the equipment, but also reduces the energy consumption; the use of twin-screw optimized combination technology greatly reduces the viscosity reduction of PET and ensures product quality and stability.

Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer, referred to as EVOH, is known as the world's three largest barrier resins together with polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) and polyamide (PA) [2]. EVOH can greatly inhibit the intrusion of oxygen in the air into food, thereby inhibiting the production of toxins and other harmful substances due to the proliferation of microorganisms, and can also prevent composition changes caused by oxidation, while maintaining fragrance and preventing external odor pollution. Moreover, the lack of moisture barrier properties can be compensated by other polyolefin layers. Therefore, EVOH multilayer packaging materials can effectively prevent food spoilage and extend shelf life. In addition, it is easy to process and form, and has good environmental protection performance. Due to the excellent gas barrier properties, transparency, processability and solvent resistance of EVOH resin, its application fields are getting wider and wider, and the demand is also growing rapidly.

2 Green innovation of production process of WSJP95-1200PET twin-screw extrusion sheet unit

PET sheet is a new type of material developed in recent years. With its excellent toughness, high hardness, high transparency, non-toxic, odorless, easy to shape and recyclable, and the excellent environmental performance of burning no harmful gas, Complying with the trend of environmental protection, it has gradually been greatly favored by consumers and producers, and is widely used in product packaging, stationery, printing, gifts and crafts in all walks of life.

The high moisture content of ordinary PET raw materials in the air will cause hydrolysis during melt extrusion, which will significantly reduce the melt viscosity and molecular weight, resulting in abnormal phenomena such as foaming, brittleness, and yellowing of the extruded sheet. At present, the domestic equipment to solve the moisture content of raw materials to produce PET sheet mainly includes single-screw extruder, and its processing route of "pre-crystallization-drying-melt extrusion" generally needs to be equipped with a crystallization drying system. The second is a planetary screw (multi-screw) crystal-free extruder, which is a drying-free direct exhaust extrusion process, and the third is a twin-screw crystal-free drying extruder, which is also directly extruded by a vented extruder. .

The crystallization-free drying direct vent extrusion process has attracted much attention due to its remarkable energy-saving effect. At present, there are single-screw and twin-screw crystal-free, planetary screw (multi-screw) crystal-free and other types. Due to the inherent characteristics of single screw, it is suitable for the requirements of professional manufacturers with few production varieties. The production conditions of different raw materials need to be matched with special screw structures. better efficiency. Planetary screw (multi-screw) crystallization-free drying extruders are generally suitable for PVC saliva pressing production lines. For PET raw materials, it is difficult to take into account the different proportions of new materials and returned materials. In actual production, there is still the risk of exhaust and material leakage, which is more difficult. In order to achieve the ideal exhaust effect and effectively control the final viscosity of the PET melt, the structure of the planetary screw (multi-screw) exhaust extruder is becoming more and more complicated, which brings a lot of inconvenience to subsequent processing, assembly and maintenance. , At present, there are no articles with detailed data reports and equipment popularization.

WSJP95-1200PET twin-screw extrusion sheet unit twin-screw crystallization-free drying extrusion process has several significant advantages, including obvious energy-saving effect, simple process and process, and can realize online compounding, etc. Through the special transformation of twin-screw, the ideal Effective venting effect and effective control of PET melt viscosity control.
