This webinar will focus on determining the size (e.g. diameter) of a twin-screw extruder to achieve a desired capacity target as a function of available motor power and free volume. Typical compounding applications will be used to identify capacity limits versus screw diameter including the number of side feeders required. The second part of the presentation will focus on how to determine the proper length of extruder (L/D) necessary to produce the desired compound properties. This webinar is designed to determine the maximum theoretical output for a given machine specification, as an example, for plant expansion projects.
