Besides delivering high-performance and reliable machines, we transfer our expertise of running a good quality foam board.
Through close cooperation with customers, we design the machines from both processing characters and mechanical manufacturing so that the operation has been optimized and humanized.
From 20mm to 150mm in thickness, from 600mm to 1200mm in width, from 200kg/hr to 2000kg/hr in throughput, USEON provides a big range of production lines, in which you will find yours.
Excellent Quality and Reliability
The quality and reliability of ECOFELTM has been recognized by Fortune 500 groups and leading XPS manufacturers in different regions worldwide, such as UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization), Owens Corning.
As a strategic partner of UNIDO to phase-out the usage of HCFCs in XPS production, USEON has been cooperating with UNIDO to implement projects worldwide.
Full Automatic Raw Material Handling System
Continuous and even feeding is the first step to produce excellent products. All recipe changes can be done through digital setting. Incorporated with DCS intelligent control system, it can manage production and contain cost more effectively.
With integrated vacuum loading system, raw materials handling solution can be customized according to individual factory circumstance so that the workshop can keep clean and tidy to make friendly work environment.
TDS-D High Torque Twin Screw Extruder
Distinguishing from normal China-made compounding twin screw extruders, we adopt TDS-D series high torque twin screw extruder as primary one, which brings specitic torque up to 10.3 Nm/cm3.
High torque twin screw extruder has many advantages:
- Keep the melt temperature as low as possible during processing
- Minimize the usage of flame retardants while keep the same flame retardancy level
- Keep the products’ color bright and fresh
- Good for super high compressive strength boards
Highly modularized barrels and screws as well as blowing agent injection flange allow TDS-D twin screw extruders to have wider flexibility and suitability. All CNC manufactured barrels and screws assure the precise fit so that it can provide excellent mixing and dispersion as well as optimum residence time distribution(RTD). Not only can it save additives usage, but enhance products quality.
Innovative Cooling Single Screw Extruder
Temperature control is very important in foam extrusion processing. In term of cooling barrel design, the newest version of cooling single screw extruder has increased cooling capacity by 80% comparing with traditional design.
Besides upgraded barrel design, the latest screw profile increases renewal rate of molten materials so that it assures the cooling efficiency and homogenization
of materials temperature, yet decreases the power consumption by 30%.
Blowing Agent System
Strike the Balance Between Cost and Quality.
Variable physical properties of CO2 make metering it a challenge. It involves temperature control, pressure control and mass flow rate control, in addition, it’s a balance between processing parameters.
We designed a CO2 system which can control its properties at a certain status in order to meter it precisely. Multiple blowing agent injection system allow you to shift the products portfolio easily to cater for different market positioning. Pursuing quality and containing cost are at ease.
We provide complete downstream including calibrator, haul-off, edge trimming, cut-off, stacker, and auto-packaging system. We customize downstream according customers’ final purpose or existed building. Surface planner, surface groover, embossing, shiplap edge, and tongue & groove edge all these accessories can be online or offline.
DCS Intelligent Control System
A Prelude to Industry 4.0. Pulling data from recipe management and operation history, then optimize parameters from big data Extracting data from maintenance record and alarm history, remote analysis and technical support can be done through such notifications.
DCS intelligent control system helps you manage your production and maintain your equipment more effectively. Powerful industry PC leads your XPS production into Big Data era.

FAQ about XPS Production
What are the advantages of XPS board?
1. Good impermeability, low water absorption
2. High compressive strength to withstand the load of any kind of ground system
3. Good thermal insulation
4. XPS board has stable performance and anti-aging character which can be used for
30-40 years, while EPS will be aging after being used for 3-5 years, the performance will
decline due to the absorption of water
5. XPS board has great anti-moisture performance. It still can keep its low thermal
conductivity under high pressure of vapor condition, so it’s excellent for low temperature
storage system, such as cold storage system, freezer car etc
How to Configure Your XPS Production Line?
Normally XPS production line is a tailor-made one for individual request. So before your investment, you need to learn something about how to configure your XPS production line to get the most out of your investment.
XPS stands for eXtruded PolyStyrene. The first thing you got to know is the output. How much capacity are you looking for? For example, 500kg/hr or 1.5 ton per hour, there is big difference when capacity varies. Also, the output has some connections with your product category. Say, if the majority of your product is in 20mm thick, or less, I will NOT recommend you the line more than 300kg/hr. Vice versa, if you are going to produce XPS boards thicker than 100mm, I will recommend you the line more than 1000kg/hr, for the greater thickness requires bigger pressure gradient.
How to Control Your CO2 in XPS Production Line?
It is well known that CO2 is the most challengeable blowing agent to handle during the physical foam extrusion process. It is for reasons.
For example, the supercritical point, touchy dry ice, and its density vary apparently when circumstance temperature changes etc. For end customers, knowing this information would not get you anywhere.
You still need reliable design to warranty the productivity of your production line. I am not going to tell you many theories or terminologies. I just want to share our practical knowhow of handling CO2 in XPS production.
