Polymer Extrusion Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This bestseller covers not only the various types of extruders and their main components, it also gives a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles, the important polymer properties, and the processes occurring within the extruder — including flow in the die, devolatilization, and mixing. Its practical approach, e.g., to screw design and optimization and to die design, as well as the trouble shooting section make this text essential reading for those in extrusion industry.

Book News Annotation:

A text primarily for practicing polymer process engineers and chemists, but also for courses on extrusion. It is divided into three parts covering machinery, theory, and practice. In addition, a major chapter is devoted to logical, step-by-step analysis of screw design and the optimization process. The text examines all extruders, hardware, and main components used with thermoplastics, including drives, reducers, bearings, screws, dies, screens, heating and cooling systems, and instrumentation and control. Distributed in the US and Canada by Hanser/Gardner publications.
