Modeling Agglomerate Dispersion in Single Screw Extruders
Annual Technical Conference - ANTEC, Conference Proceedings
We present a new model for assessing mixing in extrusion processes. The model combines numerical simulations of flow patterns in the extruder with a Monte Carlo method of clusters rupture and erosion mediated by the local fragmentation number. Particle size distributions and Shannon entropy are used for mixing characterization.
