Process Troubleshooting for Twin-Screw Compounding Extruders
Adam Dreiblatt, Century Extrusion
This webinar provides an overview of factors affecting compound product quality and process instabilities on intermeshing, co-rotating twin-screw extruders. The basis for all troubleshooting activities first requires some definition of “product quality” –a basic understanding (from the compounder’s point-of-view) of what these words mean to the customer. The webinar then identifies the most common compound quality problems and the variables responsible for causing them.
