Reactor Fed Extruders
Available from FARREL POMINI
The Reactor Fed Extruders are designed to receive the hot melt stream coming directly from a reactor. The hopper cylinder and its support are designed to carry the weight of a gravity feed vessel.
Key Features Include:
•Seals are incorporated in the rear of the hopper cylinder to minimize leakage of polymer with the screw turning or stationary
•Rear vented hopper cylinders are available to aid in degassing the melt
•Injection ports for introducing additives in masterbatch or liquid form can be furnished in hopper and forward cylinders
•Mixing screws are often used to enhance the incorporation of these additives
A special “melt homogenizing” extruder design which modifies LDPE to improve melt flow characteristics and optimal properties can be furnished.
