Velocity distributions in the kneading section of a co-rotating, self-wiping, twin-screw extruder were determined using laser Doppler anemometry to understand flow field and elucidate the mixing effectiveness of kneading blocks. Velocity profiles in the translational region were measured at three screw speeds using a Newtonian fluid. Effects of pitch and thickness of individual kneading disks, on the flow field, were also investigated. From the measured flow field, the total shear rate… CONTINUE READING
