Plastic and Polymer Evaporation

Polymers and Plastics

Your polymer and plastic evaporation experts.

LCI thin film evaporation technology is used to process the most difficult to handle products in the polymer and plastic industry. Our High Viscosity Processors, Thin Film Evaporators, and Large Volume Processors are used to concentrate, devolitize, and dewater various viscous products. Our team of process experts work closely with you to find the solution you need to meet your specific product requirements.

Our thin film evaporation technologies 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, devolatize, or de-monomerize plastics and resins in one piece of equipment
  • Recovery of solvents and polymers from waste streams: Organic solvents, monomers, and other reactants; waxes, and low-grade polymer wastes
  • Provide short residence time, 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
