Twin screw extrusion
Vol. 25 #2, Sept. 1998

When transferring screw designs between twin screw extruders having different L/D ratios, address the design analysis on three levels: overall length, relative length of solids and melt conveying zones, and functional zones such as preheating, melting, mixing, and pumping. Compare lengths in terms of L/D ratios.
