Charging hopper sleeves for extruders

Charging hopper sleeves for extruders
Call to order

Sleeve is a liner installed in the extruder charging hopper and is a replacement part. Liners, as well as material cylinders are made of high quality steel alloy 38H2MUA.

The sleeves are thermally improved while fabricated and nitrogen hardened. The inner surface of the liners is hardened with nitrogen to a depth of 0,4 to 0,8 mm, meanwhile the inner surface strength reaches 58 ... 69 HRC providing the liner’s high strength and wear-resisting properties. 

The charging hopper is a more laborious and expensive in manufacturing than sleeve.

In the process of material capturing with a screw there is a constant friction and increased wear in the charging hopper.

Therefore, during extruder operation only the sleeve is changed according to wear, whereas the hopper remains the same. Due to the removable liner, the life of the charging hopper increases significantly. Liners are made both smooth and splined on the inner surface. When using certain  materials for extrusion, due to criticality of the inner screw diameter in loading, internal longitudinal grooves in the sleeve are made to increase the capture of material, and respectively output of the extruder.

In this case we are talking about non-refractory polymers, such as HDPE, LDPE,, PP, PS,, PVC flexible PVC, ABS and others. For refractory materials extrusion such as PET, PA, PC and Hard PVC mainly smooth sleeve is used.
