12mm clamshell segmented twin-screw extruder

With the new Mini-Compounder KETSE 12/36, Brabender® offers a twin screw extruder as miniature scale with application to the food industry for the development of new products. The scale-down of the machine in combination with the comprehensive adaptability to almost each processing task, and the easy handling of the system, explain the distinction of the Mini-Compounder as an excellent laboratory apparatus.

The processing unit of the mini-compounder consists of a horizontally divided barrel with a length of 36 D which can be tilted open and allows visual assessment of the processing steps. Thus comfortable removal and quick cleaning of the barrel is allowed. In addition to the main metering, metering or venting ports at a barrel length of 4.5 D (liquid only), 10 D and 27 D are available. Necessary side feeders can be installed at a processing length of 12 D.
