Polymer Production Pumps

Polymer extraction and transfer pump for polymer applications – viscorex® VR

Viscorex® VR

Polymer processes in the polymer industry require units that gently discharge low and high-viscosity plastic melts from reactors and degassing equipment. The MAAG polymer extraction pump systems and viscorex® transfer gear pumps feature the excellent fill behaviour and short residence times that make them the ideal solution for such polymer applications. Their high efficiency and long service life will enhance the capacity and availability of your polymer production line. viscorex® transfer gear pumps efficiently convey plastic melts with a constant, precise flow.
