Tips and Tricks to More Effectively Feed Difficult Materials in Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruders

April 27

Effectively feeding materials into a co-rotating twin screw extruder is an area where even small improvements can lead to increased throughput rate and profitability. High bulk density and large particle size materials tend to feed easily, however problems can arise when dealing with more challenging materials such a fine powders, easily fluidizing materials, odd shaped particles or sticky materials. This webinar will present various techniques and tips to designing feed systems and twin screw extruders to overcome many of these challenges.
