CPeX® Laboratory Compact Processor

For small scale testing and development.

The CPeX® Laboratory Compact Processor utilizes the unique and proven FARREL POMINI continuous mixing technology in a size suitable for testing and development. The CPeX® design allows compounders to conduct laboratory-scale product development trials, extend product application portfolios, expedite time to market and reduce costs.

The CPeX® is designed for developing new and improved formulations of polymer and masterbatch compounds in laboratories of production facilities as well as conducting academic research and training in universities.

CPeX® Key Features Include:

  • 10 – 30 Kg/hour production capacity
  • Accepts full-size pellet as well as standard feed materials
  • Supports both CP Standard and CPXL rotor configurations on one platform
  • Fully integrated wiring and piping that is “connect and go” and suitable for any industrial voltage
  • Fully functioning orifice for performance as flexible as production machines
  • Single-screw flex wall volumetric feeder
  • User-friendly PLC-based control system with Wonderware touchscreen HMI
  • SCADA functionality for remote analysis
