This measuring mixer and extruder system supports you in process modelling activities such as: compounding polymers with additives to reduce flammability, viscosity, etc.;
scale-up extrusion processes by using different L/D ratios to extrapolate to your master process line, simulating master processes using only as little as 50g of material to optimize extrusion or mixing in respect to temperature and shear profile or extrusion of strands, profiles or films in combination with rheological or optical measurements.
Consequently, you can optimize your process parameters, create test specimens or perform quality control on incoming and outgoing goods with regard to viscosity, dispersion or plasticising behaviour.
The drive unit of the HAAKE PolyLab OS system comprises all elements of a torque rheometer that are needed to drive the measuring system (precise speed controller) and to monitor the torque (accurate torque sensor) needed to process the test material.
System architecture based on an open industry standard for flexible connection of different sensors and systems
Ease of operation
Fast and simple connection of measuring accessories without changing application and operating software
Operate the system from a distance and observe the entire test from a different location
Return on investment (ROI)
Time-saving instrument usage and meaningful results relative to the application increase product quality and reduce development time
The system features lab mixers as well as single and twin-screw (conical and parallel) extruders to provide most comprehensive data to our customers.
