With over 20 years of global service under their belt, Xtrutech has positioned itself as an unparalleled market leader in the supply and support of high-performance extruder lines that combine efficiency, low maintenance and easy clean designs.
A cornerstone of Xtrutech's market leadership is its broad value proposition, unmatched by any other in the industry.

Xtrutech XTS Range
The XTS range of twin screw extruders, designed and manufactured by Xtrutech, is a game-changer in powder coating production. These machines boast a unique top- and bottom-opening clamshell barrel design with insert liners and cooling blocks, enabling easy access for maintenance and cleaning, thereby reducing downtime, and enhancing operational efficiency. This design element also proves cost-effective, as the liners, made from abrasion and corrosion-resistant materials, are simple and easy to replace.
Xtrutech's XTS range features six models, each optimized to cater to a different scale and production need. The XTS19 and XTS24 (pictured below) are perfect for small batch testing, color matching, and trialing new formulations. The XTS35, on the other hand, is a versatile machine that can be utilized as either a laboratory, small batch production, or pilot line extruder.
For small to medium batches, the XTS44 (pictured below) stands out with its quick turnaround time, meeting urgent orders with an impressive output of up to 800 kg/hr (1764lbs/hr).
The largest models, XTS56 & XTS65 (pictured below), offer a high yield of up to 1600kgs/hr (3527lbs/hr) and 2400kgs/hr (5291lbs/hr) respectively. All XTS Extruders feature Xtra-volume, segmented, screw elements to optimize the feeding of traditionally difficult-to-feed low bulk density formulations.Xtrutech Ancillaries
Beyond the extruders themselves, Xtrutech also provides the accompanying ancillaries required for a complete extruder line. Their cooling systems include compact drum coolers for smaller extruders and cooling conveyors for larger scale production units. The company also offers a selection of feeding options, including top and side feeders, depending on your production requirements.
Further to the extrusion line, Xtrutech have developed the XTS Compactor (pictured left), a fines recycling system designed to reduce waste and increase efficiency in the powder coatings industry. This innovative solution compacts fines and reintroduces them to the mill as usable chips, creating a closed-loop system that significantly improves the sustainability of the powder coating production process with yield returns of up to 99%.
Xtrutech’s commitment to their customers extends well beyond the point of sale. Understanding the significance of seamless operation and longevity of legacy equipment, Xtrutech shines in its commitment to supporting customers' existing lines.
