Output Rate Check
Vol. 26 #3, December 1999

There are many techniques for measuring extruder output rate. The type used depends on the size, type, and accuracy of a conveniently available scale. For extrusion rate check using gram weight measurement:

- measure the rate over a 79 second time period
- measure the weight in grams

Multiply by 0.1 to get rate in pounds per hour (PPH).
