Davis-Standard Corp. said its KXE filter pressure value (FPV) pump improves the quality-control testing of compounds, especially color compounds, with accurate, repeatable pressure control.
Filter pressure value quantifies the level of resin dispersion. The value helps compounders maintain product consistency and provides a standardized way to compare one product with another.
Davis-Standard of Pawcatuck, Conn., said the FPV pump is more repeatable than the ASTM method previously used.
The pump is available as an integrated component on a new laboratory extruder, or as a stand-alone unit with an existing extruder.
