Abstract

Experimental residence time distribution functions for the liquid and solids conveying processes by a screw conveyer and for the polymer in a plasticating extruder were obtained by using a radioactive tracer technique. A comparison was made between the experimental results and several theoretical models available for melt extrusion and mixing processes.
