Twin Screw Extruder
Vol. 27 #2, November 2000

When assembling twin screw extruder elements on a shaft, lap them to remove burrs. This assures proper fit to minimize the possibility of polymer getting onto the shaft. The element should be lopped in a "figure 8" pattern, to keep the element faces "square".
