Continuous Polycondensation Plant Solutions

The efficient and high-end continuous polycondensation plants of our subsidiary company Oerlikon Barmag Huitong Engineering (OBHE) produce a homogenous melt using a chemical reaction which transfers different monomers into polymers.

Total Control over the entire process chain

During this process, side products such as water are created. A high-end melt like this is the basis for high-quality yarn used for fiber-grade and bottle-grade polyester.
The benefits of an in-house polycondensation system are clear to see: in addition to independence from external granulate manufacturers, short-term price fluctuations within the raw materials market an direct influence on polymer quality, it is - above all - the additional value added that promises further profits.

Polyamide process chains complemented

Polyamide is used in countless everyday items – from apparel, toothbrushes, carpets and automobile fittings all the way through to PC housings, dowels and pipes. For manufacturing extremely flexible, high-performance products from polyamide 6 (PA6), Oerlikon Manmade Fibers offers a broad range of machines and systems that the company has now further expanded. At the end of March 2018, the group segment acquired the decades-long tried-and-tested technology of PE Polymer Engineering Plant Construction GmbH, based in Thuringia, Germany. This includes the entire polyamide 6 polymerisation systems division and its PA6/6.6 co-polymer and the patented dimer-hydrolysis procedures for feeding recycled-lactam with the very highest end-product quality. With this expansion of the product range to include the melt preparation process step, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers now covers the entire polyamide process chain for fibers and filaments – from the melt to the granulate through to the finished yarn. This guarantees the necessary knowledge base for entering the high-end PA6 granulate market for the engineering plastics and film packaging industries. Customers also benefit from an internationally tried-and-tested implementation concept that covers everything from sourcing investment through to securing operational availability throughout the entire lifespan of a system.
