Simultaneous Characterization of Dispersive and Distributive Mixing in a Single Screw Extruder
Annual Technical Conference - ANTEC, Conference Proceedings
Simultaneous characterization of dispersive and distributive mixing in a single screw extruder was discussed. A mixing index based on the calculation of Shannon entropy for different size fractions of the minor component present in the system was developed. It was found that operating the extruder at negative throttle ratio improved mixing efficiency.
