Thermo Scientific HAAKE PolyLab OS System – Measuring Extruder

The Thermo Scientific HAAKE PolyLab OS twin-screw laboratory extruders have a proven record in continuous compounding with feed-dosing of different additives (liquid or solid) along the extruder barrel. The combination of a twin-screw extruder unit with additional sensors offers the ability to measure material properties of the melt during processing.

The following properties and data can be derived from an experiment or test run in the early part of the lifecycle of a new product:

Viscosity and flow behavior of the compound
Extrudability and scale-up data
Predictions for the injection molding process
Morphology of polymer and nano-composites
Recycling properties and re-usability of the polymer
Influence of screw geometry on processability
Decomposition of biopolymers

Typical Applications

Compounding of master batches
Filling and reinforcing plastics
Metering additives and venting volatile omponents
Food processing
Color matching of powder coatings
Processing high performance and engineering polymers
Extruding and mixing ceramic compounds
Integrated rheometry with add-on melt pump and rheological dies
Compounding with complex fillers (fibers, glass, nano particles)
Extruding and mixing of ceramic components

PTW16 XL Parallel Twin Screw Extruder

Horizontally split, with a lift off top for easy cleaning, removal of screws and visualisation of the melting process
The segmented top barrel is built with 4D modules for easy reconfiguration by the operator
Barrel segments are available for cooling, feeding solids, or liquids and venting
Offer maximum flexibility for feed ports, length and screw design

PTW16 XL 25 + 15D Extendable Parallel Twin Screw Extruder

Flexible length – not all applications require a long extruder as shear sensitive material can degrade and 25D is long enough for basic applications
Optional 15D barrel extensions enhance residence time (for reactive extrusion) or multiple feed ports
Extension is easy to attach and can be added in less than 15 minutes
PolySoft software will recognise the extension unit when it is connected

PTW24 MC Modular Twin Screw Extruder

 Clam shell barrel with “liners” liners are exchangeable which allows e.g. the change of feeding locations
