Remarks:

1.One-side gap between screw and barrel is an important factor which effect both properties of products and extruder degree ;

2.Meshing gap between two screws is a significant factor that not only effects materials remaining time inside the barrel and the dispersity & distribution of compounding materials, but also effects the extruder capacity ;

3.In terms of meshing gap between two screws, if same material M2 and same declared useless state, adopting DegreeⅠabove would extend the working life greatly. For instance, elements in plastifying zone would be extended for 3000 hours, elements in disperse zone for material compounding, such as the glass fiber would be extended for 2000 hours, elements in conveying zone would be extended for10000 hours;

4.*OD stands for screw Outer Diameter .
