A Structural Improvement of Breaker Plates and Analysis of their Dynamic Properties in Polymer Tube Extruders
For the analysis of various extruder models are used not only testing, but also diverse simulation techniques. Of them, the three-dimensional technique is widely used recently. In this study, the breaker plate in a polymer resin extruder was analyzed. The breaker plate changes the rotational motion of the polymer resin extruded from the screw barrel into a straight line motion before it passes through the die. Also, the size and number of circular holes in a breaker plate directly affect polymer resin extrusion molding. In this study, a 3-D modeling was used to conduct the structural improvement of breaker plates, and the thermal/flow analysis program CFdesign was used to conduct a dynamic property analysis in a bid to achieve the production stability of extruders.
