Kurtz BLOCK FOAMER – Block Moulds for EPS

Kurtz block mould plants fulfill highest technological standards and stand for a maximum flexibility.

- Adjustable block dimensions (length and width)
- Maximum productivity and quality
- Reproducible quality
- Short cycle times


The Kurtz BLOCK FOAMER was developed for foaming of EPS-blocks in a revolutionary way. It convinces by its innovative process control, high productivity, utmost quality and reliability. The new inside covers of the block mold made of extra light weight Ultra steel screens (USS = metal sheets) enables easy cleaning, is extremely facilitated and a homogenous steam distribution can be reached.


Top-Block-Quality by up-to-date control system

The modern BLOCK FOAMER control systems convinces by flexible programming of steam – and stabilization processes. All six sides of the block mold can be controlled independently from each other. Due to permanent control and automatic self-tuning of the whole foaming process shortest cycle times as well as an optimal block quality can be guaranteed. A single steam modulating valve enables a quick and exact electronic flow control. The solid construction of the whole block mold allows the production of blocks even in the extreme density range of 8-70 g/l. Process graphs on screen show the visualised cycle process including just-in-time quality of the block by comparison of actual and target data.
