Maximum flexibility for analysis in the areas of material development and research

The co-rotating Twin Screw Extruder TSE 20/40, with its low output rates of 0.5 to 10 kg/hour and hinged cylinder has been specially designed for research and development applications. 

Carry out tests at lab scale with just a small amount of material. Furthermore, the hinged cylinder offers the ideal opportunity to analyse the screw configuration and the resulting material load.

The solution is used in combination with the Lab-Station or Lab-Station EC drives. This configuration is especially recommended as a scalable system.

As the measurement heads are interchangeable, if required you can connect a Single Screw Extruder 19/25 and/or a mixer, such as the Planetary Mixer P 600.
