Twin Scale Up
Vol. 22 #2, Sept. 1995

When twin screw extruders are being studied for the difficult process of removing solvents, monomers, etc. from a re actor product, pilot scale testing is defi nitely in order. These tests are neces sary to determine the screw design and barrel arrangement required.

Special care must be exercised in the extrapola tion process. Pilot scale problems can be much greater in the productions size equipment and should not be ignored when designing the screws and barrels.
