When the single screw extruder is in the extrusion molding process, its extruder screw is divided into 3 sections: feeding section (feeding section), melting section (compression section), metering section (homogenization section), these three sections Correspondingly, three functional areas are composed of materials: solid conveying area, material plasticizing area, and melt conveying area. Each area has different temperature requirements, and specific problems should be analyzed in detail. The temperature of the single screw extruder will be briefly introduced below.


  • What is the general temperature of the solid conveying zone in a single screw extruder?

  • What is the general temperature in the plasticizing zone of the material in a single screw extruder?

  • What is the general temperature of the melt conveying zone in a single screw extruder?



What is the general temperature of the solid conveying zone in a single screw extruder?

The temperature of the barrel in the solid conveying zone of the single screw extruder is generally controlled at 100~1400C. If the feeding temperature is too low, the solid conveying zone will be extended, reducing the length of the plasticizing zone and the melt conveying zone, which will cause poor plasticization of the single screw extruder product and affect product quality.


What is the general temperature in the plasticizing zone of the material in a single screw extruder?

The temperature of the material plasticizing zone in the single screw extruder is controlled at 170~1900C. Controlling the vacuum degree of this section is an important process index. If the vacuum degree is low, it will affect the exhaust effect, resulting in bubbles in the pipe, and seriously reducing the mechanical properties of the pipe. In order to make the gas inside the material easily escape, the plasticization degree of the material in this section should be controlled not to be too high, and the exhaust pipe of the single screw extruder should be cleaned frequently to avoid blockage. The vacuum degree of the barrel is generally 0.08~0.09MPa.


What is the general temperature of the melt conveying zone in a single screw extruder?

The temperature of the melt conveying zone in the single screw extruder should be slightly lower, generally 160~1800C. Increasing the screw speed in this section, reducing the head resistance and increasing the pressure in the plasticizing zone are all conducive to the improvement of the conveying rate. For heat-sensitive plastics such as PVC, the residence time should not be too long in this section. The screw speed is generally 20 ~30r/min. The head of the single screw extruder is an important part of extruded product molding. Its function is to generate a higher melt pressure and make the melt shape into a desired shape. The process parameters of each part of the single screw extruder are: die connector temperature 1650C, die temperature 1700C, 1700C, 1650C, 1800C, 1900C.


This is some information related to the use of single screw extruders. The use of single screw extruders is also closely related to the quality of its products. If you need more information, please contact Nanjing JlEYA.
