Static Mixers /
Heat Exchangers for Extrusion

Manufactured by Samhwa

Static Mixers These are inserted into the line before the die to provide color, temperature, and viscosity uniformity in the product. The mixers feature no moving parts, a short residence time, and a relatively low pressure drop.

Mixers can be provided with band heaters and removable or fixed mixing elements.

Heat Exchangers Used for heating or cooling the melt, these have static mixers inserted in the tubes to provide mixing and greatly improve heat transfer. Typical applications include:

  • Foam applications to prevent the blowing agent from foaming while in the extrusion process.
  • Adhesive applications to control viscosity so that pelletizing can occur for many different products using the same line.
