Abstract:Increase in both the feed rate and the screw speed decreased the mean residence time but the feed rate effect was more pronounced. The specific feeding load, barrel fill and flow profile were affected by the feed rate and the screw speed in opposite directions. Spread of the normalized RTD decreased with increasing feed rate while increasing screw speed broadened RTD due to more mixing. The flow profile in the extruder barrel was a mixture of both plug and well mixed flow.
