This book emphasizes the understanding of the underlying principles of screw extrusion and will help the engineer optimize equipment and enhance production rates and properties of synthetic polymers. Reaching these goals is dependent on optimum screw design in order to provide homogeneous melts for successful post processing such as fiber spinning, blown film, cast film, and sheets. Most importantly, the book promotes a concise understanding of the processes governing extrusion, solid conveying, melting, and metering.
Contents include: Introduction; Fundamentals; Single Screw Extrusion Technology; Technology of Single Screw Extrusion with Reciprocating Screws; Single Screw Extruder Analysis and Design; Multiscrew Extrusion. (Hanser Gardner Publications)
