Bulk Feed Extrusion Equipment
The increased feeder capacity of Diamond America’s bulk feed extrusion equipment allows for efficient, immediate processing of large batches of material.
Eliminating dual handling in situations where it may be costly or dangerous, these versatile bulk feed extruders improve process control and productivity.
Independent drives offer the flexibility to adapt processing for even the most challenging material properties.
Specially designed co-rotating twin shaft feeders provide a positive material supply to the feedscrew, eliminating dead areas. This prevents any possible stagnation of input material and ensures even mixing and distribution.
This consistency of supply to the extruder, and consequently to the extrusion die, guarantees the best possible final product, resulting in less waste.
Integrated system controls allow for heating of hopper and barrel, if required. Testing can be carried out in Diamond America’s laboratory using a scalable table top extruder to discover the “best conditions” and parameters for maximum process efficiency.
Once production conditions have been optimized for product and throughput requirements, they are fully reproducible for every run, thanks to the accurate process monitoring and control systems on all Diamond America bulk feed extruders.
Benefits at a glance:
- Handles higher throughput demands
- Maximum process flexibility
- Reduced material handling
- Improved product homogeneity
- Problem free processing of mastics
- Less waste
- Excellent temperature control
Bulk feed extrusion equipment is suitable for adhesive extrusion as well as for extruding silicone, rubber and plastics for polymer and plastics applications. It can also be used for design, testing and training in laboratory environments.
Diamond America’s versatile Bulk Feed Extruders can be optimized to ensure that even large volume batches are processed uniformly and efficiently.
