The Flavia lab use extruder is built on the segmented block design. The modular principle of the barrel permits precise sequencing for each application. Each barrel section’s temperature can be set separately. Electrical heater shells provide for heating, cooling is obtained with water. Barrels, as well as screw and kneading elements are made out of nitride steel in the standard version; the wear resistant version is made of suitable materials, corresponding to the respective requirements. To make the research and maintenance more convenient, the barrel of the extruder could be opened within a few minutes.
