  • ZSK Mv PLUS

    Coperion’s twin screw extruder ZSK Mv PLUS provides ideal conditions for the extrusion of many types of food and pet food products. The process section of the ZSK twin screw extruder consists of several barrels in which the co-rotating screws operate. The closely intermeshing screws with their tight self-wiping profile eliminate stagnant zones over the whole length of the process section. The effect of this is a constantly high conveying efficiency and perfect self-cleaning. The modular design of the ZSK Mv PLUS and its unusual combination of free screw volume, screw speed and torque enable this twin screw extruder series to be individually configured for every application. The complete portfolio includes a wide range of sizes, allowing customers to process any required throughput range from laboratory to production scale.

  • ZSK 18 MEGAlab

    Small size – large impact. Coperion’s ZSK 18 MEGAlab laboratory twin screw extruder possesses the successful genes of the ZSK technology. It was developed especially for processing of smallest batch sizes. The reliable scale-up to larger ZSK twin screw extruders make it the ideal compounding system for formulation development and basic scientific research. The process section of the ZSK MEGAlab twin screw extruder is designed as a modular system. It consists of several barrels in which the co-rotating screws operate. The advantage of this modular principle is its maximum flexibility in applying liquids and degassing the melt with vacuum units. Throughput rates between 1 and 10 kg/h. Small batches of 200 g. Simple handling and quick product changes using quick release connections
