The polyolefin market is growing

There is a growing worldwide demand for plastic material derived from polyolefin pipe extrusion due to the many advantages plastic confers over existing pipelines. Subsequently, the production of polyolefin (polyethylene and polypropylene, or PO) pipe has recorded exponential growth in many sectors, from infrastructure to civil construction and the oil and gas sector by virtue of the performance characteristics that make this family of plastic materials especially suitable for pipe applications.

Polyolefin offers several notable advantages, with polyethylene (PE) specifically having the highest production volume worldwide due to its unique combination of useful properties guaranteeing high levels of durability, ductility, excellent chemical resistance, low permeability to aqueous vapour and minimal water absorption. Polyolefins in general have been further supported by new technology, making it possible to produce large diameters of PO pipes up to 4m.

Polyolefins are therefore being established as the material of choice to install new networks or replace existing ones, eating up the market shares of metal and concrete pipes.

Bausano – choosing quality

Bausano stands out in the polyolefin pipe extrusion market due to its strategic choice to pursue in-house design and production of extrusion lines and components including the screw, barrel and tooling. This leads to superior efficiency in company processes, high quality standards and a well-balanced, competitive position, with complete control over the value chain. Bausano engages proactively with customers, offering pre-sales consultancy aimed at identifying the most suitable formula to obtain the desired product and offer the best extrusion system.

E-GO: Single-screw Extruder

Dynamic, flexible and international, Bausano has been successfully active for over 77 years, standing out as a leading, world-class manufacturer of extrusion lines for processing plastic materials. Combining unique expertise and skills with an innovation-focussed culture means Bausano can actively respond to and address market needs.

Bausano’s E-GO single-screw technology makes it possible to manufacture pipes for a number of applications in various industries: from construction, utilities, medical, automotive and more.

Single or multi-layer pipes, rigid or flexible, variable diameters up to 4m and a variety of materials including PP, PP-R, PE, HDPE, LDPE, PE-X, PE-RT, PMMA, PC, PA and PU – a wide range of fully customisable Bausano accessories makes it possible to build complete extrusion lines to fit any requirement.

Screw Design Process

E-GO’s strong advantage is the geometry of its screw, which features customised design and differentiated pitch, allowing for torque optimisation by increasing the machine output and making low-termperature processing possible for materials including polyolefins. Bausano devote considerable resources to the smallest details to ensure performance and long-term reliability.

 

Energy efficiency

High energy efficiency is also ensured by the low-input asynchronous motors, while the lower wear reduces the risk of failure and helps decreasing overhead costs, by reducing the need for frequent servicing. Furthermore, thanks to Bausano Digital Extruder Control, the user interface is completely customisable and allows using the same monitor to control the extruder and the downstream at the same time.

E-GO is the culmination of skill, collaboration and in-house design and production, delivering tangible results and helping customers gain a vital competitive advantage.
