There are a great variety of mixer types, but these are usually categorized as either distributive or dispersive. Dispersive mixers always provide some level of distribution as well. 24 Mixing element machined onto the screw Because of the large number of mixer types, it is good to understand the important characteristics of these devices. First, it must be determined if the mixer produces the type and degree of mixing required. Factors to evaluate here include distributive vs. dispersive and length of mixing section.

Frictional heat input is increased by raising the screw speed or reducing the flight clearance. Raising the screw speed must, of course, be accommodated by all other extruder functions. Reducing the flight clearance keeps the melt film thin and the shear to the solid bed high. Notice the implication that if the clearance is large (a worn screw flight), then the melting rate – throughput – is reduced. Increasing conductive heat with the heater bands may also improve the melting rate. More heat to the solids will help them melt faster.

This opening in the feed throat is often circular or square. 7 screw diameters [7]. 5 An extruder screw being flood fed by a full hopper The hopper is usually maintained at a near-full level since most single screw extruders are flood fed (Fig. 5). Flood feeding occurs when the throat area is kept full, allowing the screw channels to completely fill with each screw rotation. Occasionally, single screw extruders are starve fed, an arrangement where solids are trickled into the throat at a metered rate that doesn’t completely fill the screw channels.
