Monitor Back Pressure
Vol. 24 #3, Dec. 1997

Monitoring extruder back pressure is critical to understanding if the process is in control.

It is important to validate, through the use of statistics, to identify the mean and, equally important, the variation (or standard deviation) to within 1% of set point.

- Daniel Cykana, Bemis Manufacturing Co.
