Devolatilizing extruder removes monomer/oligomer and solvent directly from polymer solution.
This extruder can be applied to not only thermoplastics but also to synthetic rubber.
This process removes most of the solvent efficiency with a flashing process at the feeding section, constant surface renewal at multiple downstream vents and gas removal from bubbled polymer created by the injection of stripping agents.
This extruder can devolatilize maximum 80% solvent into polymer.
JSW has developed optimized barrel and screw configurations and auxiliaries for this process(such as vent stuffers) based on the extensive devolatilizing experiences to produce high devolatilizing performance.
