MuCell Extrusion introduces new fluid hardware; expands facility

MuCell Extrusion LLC is introducing an SCF hardware that is able to handle injection pressures of 15,000 psi for applications. According to Mark Lindenfelzer, President of MuCell Extrusion LLC, the units complement the company’s existing 7,500 psi units, which are unique in the industry in enabling precise control of gas at any output rate. He also added that these are ideally matched to microcellular foam extrusion, which requires extremely precise control of gas, often at high pressures.

Further, Mucell has also expanded its assembly space to nearly dpuble this year, with the addition of a new 6000 sq ft building adjacent to its headquarters in Woburn, Massachusetts. The new building is designed for assembly and testing of its supercritical fluid hardware, which now includes units available to handle injection pressures of up to 1000 bar (15,000 psi)..

“Our business continues to see excellent growth in all of our markets around the globe and we need more space,” said Lindenfelzer, ”We expect to ship roughly 50 systems this year, spread just about evenly between our customers in Asia, North America and Europe. We’re serving a variety of markets, including blown film and blow molding, as well as sheet, wire and cable and pipe applications. Our new facility became available late last year to help us serve this robust customer demand,” he concluded.
