High Melt Temperature
Vol. 33 #1, Summer 2006

The screw speed is a determining factor driving melt temperature in a single screw extruder. Barrel cooling is effective at screw speeds less than 50 rpm, but not so above that. Reducing the outlet pressure (die opening, etc.) can help reduce temperature.
