Spun-blown®/Meltblown Systems

Meltblown systems transform polymers or solutions into very fine fibers and convert them into fibrous nonwoven roll goods in one step.

Advantages

Uniformity

Each section is equipped with its own gear pump which controls polymer flow to ensure uniform basis weights (weight per unit area). Each pump is individually driven to allow maximum versatility.

Capacity

Biax’ Multi-Row Spinnerettes allow for up to 12000 nozzles per meter and fibers ranging from 1-25 microns that translates into production capacity up to 500 Kg/m/hr.

Versatility

Various spinnerette designs allow switching from fine fibers to coarse few in minutes.

Patented Features

Shorter exposure time to high temperatures, which limits thermal degradation, producing a stronger fiber and higher yield of material.

Ease

Modular die design allows for quick replacement of each section for cleaning or repair.

Repairability

Biax spinnerettes are 100% repairable.

Energy Savings

Manufacturers using the new Biax system report substantial energy savings as well as significantly lower labor and equipment operating costs.
