July 2020

Overcoming Feed Limitations

July 8 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am CEST

Century Extrusion 2020 Webinar Series Increasing the production rate for feed-limited applications of twin-screw extruders is often related to venting of entrained air from the extruder barrel. This webinar identifies several options to increase capacity when the extruder is volumetrically-limited. Most of these ‘opportunities’ are related to screw design; several approaches to increased productivity (for feed-limited applications) via screw design are presented.   REGISTER FOR WEBINAR
