Davis-Standard LLC has announced an option the company for its feedscrew line, the DS-Blend.
The design improves the performance of a single-screw extruder for demanding applications by providing distributive and dissipative melt mixing. A two-stage approach achieves outputs similar to those of a single-stage barrier screw, according to Davis-Standard.
DS-Blend can be installed on new or existing single-screw Davis-Standard extruders, as well as on non-Davis-Standard brands.
Davis-Standard is based in Pawcatuck, Conn.
