Diamond America Corporation will introduce the swing bolt configuration, its latest extruder design feature, at ChemShow 2013, December 10-12 in New York City. The swing bolt allows Diamond America’s Table Top Extruders to be easily cleaned and maintained. The unit can be quickly disassembled, the screw and barrel purged and cleaned, and the die replaced within minutes. As a result, the machine’s downtime is greatly reduced and productivity is increased.
Diamond America’s Table Top Extruders (TT Series) are suited for research, testing, quality control, and production applications, and the swing bolt configuration makes them ideal for laboratory use when testing different materials or profiles. The TT Series features a modular design and all units are available with mobile cart to provide you with ultimate flexibility.
Diamond America offers both standard 1″ and 2″ Table Top Extruders and custom designed and built extruders for special applications such as high temperature or corrosive polymer processing. The TT Series is currently used by manufacturers to test a wide range of products and as a teaching tool in research labs in many Universities and Colleges. “We bought the TT100 extruder manufactured by Diamond America in order to produce the extruded pellets of molecular sieves including aluminosilicates and titanosilicates in our lab – the equipment has been working well on the forming of inorganic materials,” stated Lan Wu, Technician, University of Alberta.
The TT100 1″ Single Screw Extruder and TF200 2″ Twin Feed Extruder with swing bolt configuration will be on display in the Diamond America booth for all ChemShow 2013 visitors to see. Details on all Diamond America TT Series extruders can be found here.
