Extrusion Modeling of Solid Plug Flow of Co-Rotating Twin Screw Pulping Extruder
In order to calculate important design parameters, screw axial force and power consumption of twin screw pulping extruder (TSPE), considering actions of the solid material plug in reverse thread of the TSPE and according to static balance principle, an extrusion model including plug flowing and shearing in reverse thread is proposed in the paper. Based on the model, screw axial force, screw torque, power consumption and flow rate can be derived. When changing thread lead numbers or slot width on the flight of the reverse thread, theoretical calculating results and testing results are better consistent.
