HR3 (High Rate, High Reliability, High Return) Machines Available in Sizes Ranging from 53mm to 133mm
ENTEK has rebranded its larger, high-output twin-screw extruders. The company’s 53mm, 73mm, 103mm, and 133mm machines are now the HR3 series, with ‘HR’ meaning High Rate, High Reliability, and High Return.
This series of workhorse extruders are used for high-output production of masterbatch, sheet, packaging, food, profiles, and more and make up over 60% of ENTEK extruders in operation today.
“We’ve put a lot of research and development into our QC3 line of smaller twin-screw extruders the past few years, and that continues,” said Linda Campbell, ENTEK’s Director of Sales. “But we didn’t want to lose sight of the fact that our larger machines are a major source of our business and a great option for high-output compounding.”
While the QC3 line of machines (27mm, 33mm, and 43mm) for customers who run smaller lots of materials and do frequent material changes, the HR3 line is for higher output applications where customers run standard formulations at least 80% of the time.
