American Kuhne modular micro extruders are available in 12mm, 16mm and 19mm sizes and are suitable for medical device and pharmaceutical applications. Very low output volumes can be achieved down to a few grams/min using standard size pellet shapes and granules. Modular extruders offer quick and easy barrel and screw L/D and/or diameter changes – allowing for fast product changes for different size tubing applications. The system also enables processors to perform off-line clean-out of the feed and barrel sections for faster resin changeover.
