linea XPS

It is with great satisfaction that Union Officine Meccaniche s.p.a. announces that an important contract for the supply of a tandem-type extrusion line (primary twin screw extruder – secondary single screw extruder) for the production of XPS insulation panels has been positively concluded with Synthos Dwory 2 Sp. z o.o. (Poland).

This contract is particularly important for Union Officine Meccaniche s.p.a. because Synthos Dwory 2 Sp. z o.o. is the main petrochemical company which produces styrene and its derivatives and it is also the main XPS panels producer in Poland and in the Czech Republic.

The technological reasons which led our customer to prefer our company over the international competitors are even more important. This is a source of great pride and satisfaction which rewards the efforts made during the two years of gestation of this project.

This latest technological evolution, developed over the years for extruders used in the FOAM segment, allows the production of XPS panels in compliance with the standards required by the UNI EN 13164 rules with the use of percentages of EPS waste never known before!

Our technology, in fact, combines the essence of the modern engineering based on the satisfaction of energy saving and environmental needs (possibility of reusing waste from post-consumer collection) with the need of reducing production costs.

The supply also includes a series of ancillary equipment such as a recycling and granulation line, able to maintain a high quality MFI necessary to guarantee a final product in compliance with UNI EN 13164 specification and a line for the suction and treatment of the dust due to the milling and smoothing of the panel.

The new XPS lines of Union Officine Meccaniche s.p.a. are having an important market success!

After having conquered the second most important XPS panel manufacturer in Europe in 2018, we can now count Synthos among the most important challenges won in this market segment. We are sure that this challenge will be followed by other challenges among the ones already at an advanced discussion stage.
