The system is based on a conical, twin-screw compounder with an integrated backflow channel. Due to the channel and a bypass valve, the residence time is well defined.
Two pressure transducers are integrated in the backflow channel. They allow the measurement of (relative) melt viscosity (counter-rotating screws required). This micro compounder can be used with co- or counter-rotating screws and is equipped with an inert gas flush system.
The HAAKE MiniLab works as a stand-alone unit with data export or as a fully computer-controlled system.
- Co- and counter-rotating twin screws
- Integrated viscosity measurement
- Automatic bypass operation for circulation/extrusion
- Pneumatic feeding
- LCD screen for graphical data display
- Manual or computer control
- Easy to clean due to exit in split barrel
- Fits into laboratory fume hood
Compatible with: Because of the small sample volumes required, the combination of the HAAKE MiniLab and the force feeder is a powerful tool for quick analysis. Performing the same test with a standard lab extruder would take much longer.
