DisTRIBUtive & Dispersive Mixing

Process Technology

Mixing in the RingExtruder RE

The mixing in the RingExtruder RE® is a very sophisticated process step. The fact that the product flow is split up into 12 small sub-flows boosts the mixing capabilities tremendously.

Two mixing effects dominate the process: distributive mixing and dispersive mixing. Their ratio varies with the design of the screw and can therefore adapted to the demand of the polymer.
