Water piping
Vol.21 #1, June 1994

It is common practice to pipe the extruder's water cooling supply for the feed section and gear box in parallel with numerous other devices like cooling rolls or even other extruders.

If one of the flow paths has a low resistance to water flow, most of the cooling water will take that path and the extruder will not get enough cooling for proper operation. In these cases, it is necessary to add a booster pump in the supply line to the extruder.
