XTS11 Laboratory Twin Screw Extruder

The XTS19 is one of the smaller Twin Screw Extruders in the XTS range and is ideal for small batch runs and the testing of new formulations. The XTS19 is well suited for the processing of Thermoplastics, Medical Plastics, Biopolymers, Fine Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals.

Barrel come in standard lengths of 24D and in 6D increments up to 54L/D for more complex applications.

  • Features
    • Clamshell barrel for quick cleaning and maintenance.
    • Insert liners which can be made from wear or corrosion resistant materials.
    • Segmented screw elements.
    • Independently controlled temperature zones with electric heating and water cooling.
    • PLC controlled with operator friendly HMI screens.
    • Multipoint Liquid Injection (for viscous and non-viscous fluids) can use various types of pumps peristaltic, gear, piston, syringe, HPLC.
    • Atmospheric Venting.
    • Vacuum extraction to remove gases generated by process.
    • Scale-up to production machines.
    • Customised laboratory ancillaries including waterbaths, pelletisers, haul off etc.
  • Optional Extras
    • Side Feeders – for highly filled products and temperature/sheer sensitive products and materials.
    • Liquid Feeders – low and high viscosity, with range of pump types (gear, peristaltic, syringe & piston).
    • Nitrogen Purge for Feeders.
