Feed Screws and Barrels
Pushing the Limits of Extrusion
Selecting the right feed screw design for your process
ADG Solutions / Davis-Standard feed screws and barrels – new and rebuilt
Selecting the right extrusion feed screw design for your process is critically important to optimizing melt conditions and maximizing your material properties. Plastic materials have broad variations in viscosity, melting points, volatiles, densities, moisture, sensitivity to shear, abrasive contaminants, etc. All of these variables, alone or in combination present significant barriers to maintaining homogeneity and melt consistency and output.
Plastics industry leaders ADG Solutions and Davis-Standard can help you choose the optimal extrusion screw design for your process. From single-stage general purpose to two-stage barrier designs to double vented and with a host of mixer technologies and wear-resistant alloys, we have what you need to maximize your process. We have everything from low work to high work screw designs that work to keep your resins in proper condition.
