The structure, working principle and characteristics of Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder
Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder (co-rotating twin-screw extruder) is an efficient and multi-functional extrusion equipment, which is widely used in the production and processing of plastics, food, medicine and other fields. It uses a pair of co-rotating twin-screws to process raw materials into products of required shape and size through friction and shearing between the screws. The following is the introduction of the structure, working principle and characteristics of Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder:
Structure and screw arrangement
Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder is mainly composed of hopper, screw, sieve plate, heating and cooling system and other parts. Among them, the screw is the core component of the extruder, usually consisting of two co-rotating twin-screws. The shape and arrangement of the screw will vary according to different processing needs. For example, in the field of plastics processing, the screw is usually arranged in a mixing or full mixing type to maximize the process of mixing, melting and extrusion.
The working principle of the Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder is to transport the raw material from the hopper to the exit of the extruder through the co-rotating twin-screw. During the operation of the screw, the raw materials go through a series of mixing, melting and extrusion processes, and finally form the desired product shape and size. In this process, there are three main modes of operation of the screw: co-rotation, counter-rotation and alternate rotation. Different operating modes will have an impact on product quality and processing efficiency.
Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder has the following features:
(1) High efficiency: Due to the joint action of the twin-screw, the production efficiency of the extruder is high, which can meet the production needs of large quantities.
(2) Multifunctional: Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder adopts different screw shapes and arrangements, which can process many different raw materials, including plastics, food, medicine, etc.
(3) Stable product quality: Due to the friction and shearing action between the screws, the raw materials can be fully mixed and melted, the product quality is stable, and the dimensional accuracy is high.
(4) Simple operation: Co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder is easy to operate, and automatic production can be realized only by simple switch control.
(5) Heating and cooling control: Through the heating and cooling system, the precise control of the temperature of the extruder can be realized to ensure product quality and production efficiency.
