Unit Produces Small Profiles

April 29, 2003

GC-61 conical twin-screw extruder is designed for small profile applications. A gearbox with claimed twice the torque capacity of similar machines enables the extruder, which has 61-mm screws, to be run flood-fed, simplifying operation. The unit is also claimed to have the largest screw taper angle among commercial conical extruders, for increased output and lower screw and barrel wear. Maximum profile production rate is 500 lb/h. One unit was recently installed at York, pa-based pvc profile processor Adept Corp. Davis-Standard, 1 Extrusion Dr., Pawcatuck, CT 06379 www.davis-standard.com
