What is a Twin Screw Extruder?
A twin screw extruder is used in specialized applications that require thermally sensitive materials to be processed, sized, and transported. Devolatilization, for example, is a twin screw extruder application in which volatiles are driven out from a hydrocarbon material (like coal) in order to be decomposed. Devolatilization requires specialized equipment like a dual screw extruder because it is influenced by factors such as temperature, pressure, and particle size.
