This new extruder was required to replace an existing machine, in a bid to increase the output rate of clay pellets. The project took only 26 weeks from order receipt to delivery.
Glynn Dixon, Contracts Manager at Craven Fawcett, said: “Sibelco was looking to increase its output and the new extruder will enable them to efficiently achieve their production targets. This project involved the removal of the old machine and supply of the new machine, including delivery, installation and commissioning. We were successful in winning this project due to our expertise in the china clay industry.”
Craven Fawcett has supplied extruders and other machinery to the china clay industry for over 30 years and is at the forefront of technology in the field of extruded pelletization.
