Extruder Output
Vol. 27 #1, March 2000

When considering the theoretical and actual output of an extruder, the density change of any specific polymer from solid to melt phase must be considered. For instance, the solid density of polyethylene is .92-.96, however, the melt density ranges from .72-.76.
