Davis-Standard Corp. said its Internal Diameter Increase conversion kit is a retrofit package for boosting extruder output with relatively little downtime and expense.
IDI allows the extruder barrel, feed section, screw and breaker plates to be replaced by larger-diameter versions.
The kit is suitable for extruders with screw diameters of 2½ inches, 3½ inches, 4½ inches and 6 inches.
Since the barrel diameter is increased, a comparable increase of length-to-diameter ratio also is required.
Technicians from the Pawcatuck, Conn., machinery maker perform the retrofits at the customer's plant.
