Paper Abstract

Currently, the selection of elements and operating conditions in the mixing of various materials in a co-rotating twin screw extruder is an art which requires previous experimental studies. In this report, we outline various experimental and theoretical tools developed to investigate the mixing process in a fully intermeshing co-rotating twin screw extruder. The thermo-mechanical history of mixing is simulated employing the finite element method. To verify the numerical findings, experimental techniques were developed to investigate the goodness of mixing of samples collected from a 50.8 mm, clam shell design, Baker-Perkins twin screw extruder.
