How We Solve Polymer / Plastic Problems

LCI Corporation offers customized solutions and process expertise to solve your most difficult polymer and plastic process problems. From processing highly viscous, difficult to handle products to the pelletization of plastic additives for easier handling, LCI has process experts ready to develop the customized solution to fit your specific needs. LCI's core products include thin film evaporators, short path evaporators, high viscosity processors, and pelletization equipment. LCI also offers solid handling equipment that can assist with difficult to feed materials.

Liquid Applications

Our process solutions allow us to solve problems that were previously difficult or impossible for our clients, including:

  • Improve heat transfer, mass transfer, and flowability for viscous concentrated products up to 15,000,000 cp
  • Preconcentrate polymers to feed vented extruders
  • Concentrating and devolatilizing of Polyethylene, polypropylene, phenolics, polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyesters, PVA, polydextrose, epoxies, silicones, acrylics and many engineered thermoplastics
  • Polymerization or polycondensation of polyesters, phenolics, and co-polymers finishing
  • Complete reactions, desolventize, or de-monomerize plastics and resins
  • Recovery of solvents and polymers from waste streams: Organic solvents, monomers, and other reactants; waxes, and low-grade polymer wastes
  • Short residence resulting in better product quality, consistency, repeatability, and control especially for once through continuous configurations
  • Obtain high product purity by stripping out impurities down to very low residual levels
  • Recover solvents or monomers to minimize waste streams and increase ROI

Solids Applications

Our process solutions allow us to solve problems that were previously difficult or impossible for our clients, including:

  • Create consistent anti-oxidant pellets
  • Produce uniform color pellets for plastics production
  • Produce UV stabilizer pellets as additives for plastics
  • Produce flame retardant pellets for plastics
  • Pelletization of plastic additives reduces the typical dust associated with powder plastic additives
  • Plastic additive pellets improve the efficiency and operation of compounding extruders due to ease of dosing and shape consistency
