Process For Producing High Melt Flow Polymers

View page
US Patent:
6359077, Mar 19, 2002
Filed:
Mar 29, 2000
Appl. No.:
09/537850
Inventors:
Marios Avgousti - Plainsboro NJ
Alex Kharazi - Somerset NJ
Assignee:
Union Carbide Chemicals Plastics Technology Corporation - Danbury CT
International Classification:
C08F 800
US Classification:
5253338, 5253337, 5253339, 525386, 525387
Abstract:
Disclosed is a process making polyolefin pellet products that contain at least one unreacted free radical generator which, when heated, undergo chemical degradation producing a low viscosity polymer. The process includes contacting the polyolefin pellet with the at least one free radical generator to coat the pellet, and contacting the coated pellets and at least one unreacted free radical generator at an elevated temperature and for a period of time sufficient for the free radical initiator to soak into the interior of the pellets. The process of the invention enables the production of polyolefin pellets having any desired amount of free radical generator and therefore, production of a desired viscosity, and improves the processability of the polyolefin pellet at customer fabrication facilities to thereby provide superior quality final articles.

Process For Pelletizing Ultra-High Melt Flow Polymers

US Patent:
6426026, Jul 30, 2002
Filed:
Dec 28, 1999
Appl. No.:
09/473532
Inventors:
Marios Avgousti - Plainsboro NJ
Edward Allen Leach - St. Albans WV
Alex Kharazi - Somerset NJ
Assignee:
Union Carbide Chemicals Plastics Technology Corporation - Danbury CT
International Classification:
B29C 4778
US Classification:
264143, 264180, 264211, 26421113
Abstract:
Disclosed is a process for pelletizing high melt flow crystalline polymers to produce crystalline pellet products. The process includes feeding a polyolefin granular or pelleted polymer into a melting/mixing mechanism to provide a molten polymer material. The molten polymer material is optionally passed through a melt pump and through a die to form a plurality of molten polymer strands. The plurality of molten polymer strands then are passed through or along a water trough declined with respect to the direction of the horizontal arrays where they are sprayed with cool liquid a plurality of times in such a manner that the sprayed cool liquid creates turbulent flow and disturbs a thin film of hot water and/or steam that forms around each molten polymer strand as it is cooled without undesirable axial acceleration of the polymer strands. Subjecting the molten polymer strands to such a cooling procedure produces cooled polymer strands, which then are fed to a cutting mechanism and cut into pellets. The process produces ultra high melt flow crystalline polymer pellets which are uniformly compounded.

US Patent:
6565779, May 20, 2003
Filed:
Mar 31, 1998
Appl. No.:
09/052429
Inventors:
Alex Kharazi - Somerset NJ
Assignee:
Union Carbide Chemicals Plastics Technology Corporation - Danbury CT
International Classification:
B29C 4700
US Classification:
264 371, 264105, 264140, 2641761
Abstract:
A process for the preparation of a semiconducting shield composition comprising: (i) introducing an elastomer into a melt/mixer having a melting zone and a mixing zone; (ii) introducing particulate conductive carbon black into the melt/mixer in an amount of about 10 to about 25 percent by weight based on the weight of the resin; (iii) melting the elastomer in the melting zone; (iv) mixing the carbon black and the molten elastomer in the mixing zone; (v) optionally, pelletizing the mixture of carbon black and elastomer; (vi) recycling the mixture of carbon black and elastomer from step (iv) or the pellets from step (v) to a melt/mixer; (vii) introducing additional particulate semiconductive carbon black into the melt/mixer in an amount sufficient to provide a total amount of carbon black in the range of about 25 to about 50 percent by weight based on the weight of the resin; (viii) melting and mixing the mixture from step (vii); and (ix) pelletizing or extruding the mixture from step (viii).

Telecommunications Cable Composition Process

US Patent:
6565784, May 20, 2003
Filed:
Jun 1, 2000
Appl. No.:
09/585698
Inventors:
Mohamed Esseghir - Dayton NJ
Alex Kharazi - Somerset NJ
John Francis Wojdyla - Jackson NJ
Sean Gerard Duffy - Highbridge NJ
Thomas Shiaw-Tong Lin - Whippany NJ
Assignee:
Union Carbide Chemicals Plastics Technology Corporation - Danbury CT
International Classification:
B29C 4700
US Classification:
264141, 26421123
Abstract:
A process for the preparation of a composition useful in telecommunications jacketing comprising: (i) introducing a polyolefin into the first mixing zone of a melt/mixer having first and second mixing zones; (ii) introducing particulate carbon black per se or a premix of said carbon black and polyolefin into the first mixing zone, said carbon black being in an amount of about 2 to about 50 percent based on the weight of the polyolefin introduced into the first mixing zone; (iii) melting the polyolefin in the presence of the carbon black in the first mixing zone; (iv) mixing the carbon black and the molten polyolefin in the first mixing zone to provide a molten mixture; (v) passing the molten mixture from step (iv) into the second mixing zone; (vi) adding sufficient polyolefin to the molten mixture from step (v) to dilute the carbon black to a level of about 2 to about 3 percent by weight based on the weight of the total polyolefin in the melt/mixer; (vii) mixing the added polyolefin with the molten mixture in the second mixing zone to provide a molten mixture; (viii) about simultaneously with step (vii), venting the second mixing zone; (ix) recovering the mixture from step (vii); and (x) optionally, pelletizing the mixture from step (ix).

Method To Increase Production Rate Of A Continuous Mixer Or Extruder

View page
US Patent:
20080247263, Oct 9, 2008
Filed:
Aug 2, 2006
Appl. No.:
12/065025
Inventors:
Mohamed Esseghir - Monroe Township NJ,
Alex Kharazi - Somerset NJ,
Anthony C. Neubauer - Piscataway NJ,
Albert A. Quaranta - Sayreville NJ,
International Classification:
B29C 47/10
US Classification:
366 766
Abstract:
Compounding or extrusion rates can be increased by splitting the polymer solid feed. Melting of additional solid polymer is significantly assisted by excess enthalpy from incoming melt from a primary mixing stage. Depending on resin rheology and melting characteristics, rate increases were achieved of from up to about 55 to about 100% rate increase over the use of a single feed at the same rotor speed. The net result is a decrease in the overall SEI (specific energy input to the polymer) and thus melt temperatures.

US Classification:
264134
Abstract:
A process comprising the following steps: (a) maintaining the process in an essentially oxygen-free state; (b) introducing a first polymer directly from the polymerization reactor in which it was prepared, in molten form, into a mixer/compounder; (c) reducing any higher pressure accompanying the first polymer from the polymerization reactor to the mixer/compounder to a pressure in the range of about 0 to about 5 barg; (d) adding additives selected from the group consisting of antioxidants, second polymers, other polymer enhancing additives, and mixtures thereof to the mixer/compounder, and mixing same with the molten first polymer; (e) passing the molten mixture from step (d) through one or more screens, each having a maximum opening size of about 25 microns; (f) pelletizing the mixture from step (e); (g) introducing the pellets into a spraying chamber, the interior of said chamber being operated in a static condition; (h) spraying the pellets in the chamber with a crosslinking formulation including an organic peroxide and, optionally, a scorch retarder and/or a cure booster to coat the pellets; and (i) annealing the coated pellets to impregnate the pellets with the crosslinking formulation.
