Vacuum tanks for the PO and PVC pipe extrusion

The perfect solution for any size and application

Our vacuum tanks are adapted to the individual applications. We have the perfect solution for almost every size and requirement, as well as special applications such as our FDC (fast dimension change) system for automatic dimension change, or twin-strand extrusion.
In high-performance pipe extrusion, processors are faced with a variety of challenges like required line speed and surface quality. With the aid of high line competence, we are able to develop and implement outstanding solutions to offer highest degree of efficiency.
