Single Screw Extruders

Intended Use

Product development, inspection, quality control during production and small-scale production of hoses, tubes, films, and other profiles

Built to me rigid manufacturing standards

  • Sixteen standard models include L/D ratios of 10:1, 15:1, 20:1, 25:1, and 30:1.
  • Different models provide alternate methods of heating and cooling.
  • Temperature regulation on each is performed by a corresponding Brabender Control Console or Circulator System.

C.W. Brabender Laboratory Extruders are built to meet rigid manufacturing standards. They must provide close test reproducibility in order to act as measuring heads to the Plasti-Corder torque rheometer, a precision instrument. Their output depends on testing variables such as, melt temperature, extrusion material, screw and die design, rpm, pressure and feeding.

The 416 stainless steel, honed and nitrided barrels are manufactured in various L/D ratios. The extruders are equipped with two ports near the screw tip for either a transducer or a stock temperature thermocouple, and a rupture safety plug. Barrels can be supplied with grooves for improved shearing and positive transport of material in the extruder. Other designs and alloys can be provided for special applications.
