Mini-Compounder KETSE 12/36: Innovation for the Plastics Industry

With the new Mini-Compounder KETSE 12/36, Brabender offers a twin screw extruder in miniature scale, which supports the development of new products in the plastics industry.

The scale-down from the production machine together with the extensive adaptability to almost any processing task and the easy operation of the system justify the distinction of the Mini-Compounder as an excellent laboratory unit.

The processing unit of the Mini-Compounder consists of a horizontally hinged cylinder of 36 D length. This allows individual processing steps to be visually evaluated. Furthermore, this provides convenient screw removal and fast barrel cleaning. In addition to the main metering opening at 0 D, free-fall metering or degassing options can be found at barrel lengths of 6 D, 12 D and 26 D. Necessary side metering can be installed at a barrel length of 14 D.

Absorptometer "C": Determination of the oil number

The Brabender Absorptometer "C" is a benchtop instrument with torque measuring system (dynamometer) for accurate and reproducible measurement of the oil absorption number (OAN) of powdery materials. The measuring principle is based on the consistency change of the powder during the absorption of oil.

  • Direct torque measurement without intermediate elements guarantees high reliability and low maintenance costs
  • Automatic, sequence-controlled precision metering pump with preset standard values
  • Cost-effective operation with minimum dead times due to quick and easy replacement of the measuring swages
  • Easy operation due to front panel controls and touch screen
