The BKG product brand of the Nordson Corporation (Westlake (OH), USA), well known around the world for underwater pelletiser systems, is now also the group brand name for the company’s diverse range of polymer melt delivery equipment, including filtration systems, ovens, gear pumps, and valves.

Now included under the BKG brand are melt filtration systems, gear pumps, and valves previously offered under the Kreyenborg brand, plus screen changers, ovens, and gear pumps previously sold under the Xaloy brand. The melt delivery system business that Nordson acquired from Kreyenborg in 2013 will be moved from its existing facility in Münster and combined with the nearby BKG pelletizer business. Nordson will expand its operations in Münster to approximately four times the current size to optimize production and accommodate future growth.

“The expansion in Münster is part of a substantial global investment by Nordson in its polymer processing range of products, including other expansion projects and investments in Europe and China, a buildup of the support team around the world, and innovations for each of our polymer product families,” said Nordson Corp. senior vice president John J. Keane.
