Only STEER’s advanced co-rotating twin-screw platforms are designed using revolutionary, patented ‘fractional-lobe’ special elements. Developed with a thorough understanding of mixing in a co-rotating twin-screw extruder, these special elements are purpose-built to help you overcome difficulties arising in advanced applications. Whether it is higher intake or side-feed capacity, greater forward conveying ability, extensional flow or better wetting action and improved flow distribution, our special elements are built to greatly enhance process efficiency.
The revolutionary ‘Fractional-Lobe’ geometry (replacing the integer-lobe design) eliminates shear peaks and ensures a uniform transfer of energy to the materials being processed, giving the capability and the control to work with sensitive materials. It reduces the energy consumed considerably, while improving overall quality.
STEER’S PATENTED ‘FRACTIONAL-LOBE’ SPECIAL ELEMENTS ARE AVAILABLE ONLY ON STEER’S PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY.
