OMEGA co-rotating twin-screw extruder has over the years grown in stature due

to its control over the amount of work done inside the extruder and its control

over residence time. Continuing its thrust on leading technological innovations,

STEER OMEGA has incorporated the unique Fractional Lobe Processor (FLP) to

significantly enhance mixing and melting capabilities.

 

Atanu Maity, CEO, STEER, said, “The Fractional Lobe Processor has the ability

to work on materials in solid state to achieve intimate interaction between the

constituents while imparting physico-chemical changes through reaction, de-

volatilization, shear, compression, elongation, surface renewal, distribution,

dispersion ‒ either alone with minimal interfering effects from other actions or in

any desirable combination of actions.

 

Work imparted by the Fractional Lobe provides the required uniformity in a three-

dimensional force field eliminating hot zones that could result in material

degradation. This can be shown by mathematical models using analytical methods

or computational fluid dynamic models based on principles of finite elements

method. Fractional Lobe Processor eliminates meta-radial shear, thus achieving

stable and improved process control in compounding materials.

 

Omega extruders with their special FLP processor features, revolutionizes

efficiency in handling difficult to process materials and many other applications

that need lower residence time and/or tightening of residence time distribution.
