A twin-screw control system (TSCS) for extrusion compounding systems incorporates recipe management into the software and is said to allow the operator to recall and store specific product setpoints. Electrical items and software for control and startup sequencing are included in the system architecture for feeders and underwater pelletizers. Users have several options for data acquisition. Process information may be downloaded to an external device in a spreadsheet format or serially interfaced to a data acquisition system.
