Intelli-Torque Plasti-Corder®

Intelli-Torque Plasti-Corder®

The Intelli-Torque Plasti-Corder® is a torque rheometer that utilizes the newest developments in CAN Field Bus Technology. The unit is equipped with a powerful and reliable serial data communication system for the exchange of messages between different control units. Features a precision digital servo drive system, with a dynamometer full torque range of 0-400 Nm over the entire speed range of 0.2 to 150 RPM. The inverter drive provides for precision and constant speed even under the harshest of testing conditions. Test parameters can be set and evaluated through the user friendly Windows WINMIX and WINEXT software programs.

20mm & 12mm Twin Screw Extrusion systems

20mm & 12mm Twin Screw Extrusion systems

The Stand-alone TSE 20/40 Extruder is a self-contained twin-screw extrusion system with a 12kW inverter drive. The advantage of the integrated motor, allows the system to reach a higher rotary speed (max. 1200 rpm) than a Twin-Screw Extruder powered by a drive-unit. The processing unit is a clamshell design with segmented screws. The modular screw design enables the operator to optimize the compounding application by utilizing various kneading, mixing, and shear elements of the screws. The segmented screw elements are interchangeable and can be realigned to adapt to a specific application. The TSE 20/40 is available with barrel lengths of 20 or 40 D. Metering and/or venting ports are located at 10 D, 20 D, and 30 D with side feeding capabilities (12 D and 22 D). Furthermore, the barrel of the TSE 20/40 is divided horizontally, and can be tilted open on both sides to allow visual assessment of individual processing steps.


 The Brabender® Mini-Compounder TSE 12/36 is a miniature co-rotating twin-screw extruder with application to the chemical as well as the pharmaceutical industry for development of new products.  The unit has an integrated drive with an output of 2.4 kW (3.2 HP) and reaches speeds up to max. 600 RPM. The clam shell barrel (length: 36 D) is divided horizontally and can be titled open to allow visual assessment of individual processing steps, easy mounting of the screws and quick cleaning of the barrel. The modular screw concept offers various individual processing possibilities. Even minimum samples as is especially required in the pharmaceutical industry can be processed with the Mini-Compounder. In addition to the main metering, metering or venting ports at a barrel length of 4.5 D (liquid only), 10 D and 27 D are available. Side feeding can be installed at 12 D length.

Conical Twin Screw Extruder

Conical Twin Screw Extruder

The counter-rotating Conical Twin Screw Extruder is ideally suited for quality control, product development and research applications...the screws allow a uniform forward flow regardless to the degree of flight filling, feeding uniformity, polymer flow characteristics, or back pressure. The counter rotating chamber produces a milling action between the screws similar to a calendering process...materials can be metered with precision feed units to exact specifications, while the barrel of the extruder is designed to allow additional materials such as liquid monomers, colors or plasticizers to be added at various stages of the testing process.
