Wear analysis and wear protection

Wear on your processing units may result in lower product quality, reduced output or screw breakage. Regular inspections of processing units and choice of the right screw for the material processed can contribute to a longer service life, higher load capacity and more efficiency.

Factors influencing wear on processing units:

Material

  • Masterbatch
  • Reinforcements & fillers
  • Regrind

Steel

  • Nitrided barrels
  • Bimetallic barrels
  • Nitrided screws
  • Coated screws

Process parameters

  • Drive
  • Speed
  • Temperature

Design

  • Feed zone
  • Screw geometry
