What Will Lead to the Production Accident of the Small Twin Screw Extruder

Regular equipment maintenance, adherence to operational guidelines, ensuring the quality of raw materials, and implementing effective safety systems are crucial measures for preventing accidents in the production of plastic modification pelletizers.

The common reason of production accident of the small twin screw extruder

  1. Quality issues with raw materials: If the raw materials used in the plastic modification pelletizer have quality problems, such as impurities or excessive humidity, it may lead to production accidents.
  2. Mechanical failures: Damaged, worn, or improperly meshed mechanical components can cause instability in the operation of the plastic modification pelletizer and even result in accidents.
  3. Improper temperature control: Strict temperature control is essential during the plastic modification process. Malfunctioning temperature control systems or improper operation can hinder proper plastic modification and lead to accidents.
  4. Improper operation: Inappropriate operation or non-compliance with operational procedures by personnel operating the plastic modification pelletizer may contribute to production accidents.
  5. Electrical issues: Problems in the electrical system of the plastic modification pelletizer, such as short circuits or damage to electrical components, can pose risks of fires or other safety accidents.
  6. Overloading: Prolonged operation of the plastic modification pelletizer under overload conditions can cause equipment overheating and damage, leading to accidents.
  7. Equipment design defects: Inherent design or manufacturing defects in the equipment itself may contribute to accidents during the production process.
  8. Environmental factors: Changes in environmental conditions, such as sudden fluctuations in temperature or humidity, can also affect the normal operation of the plastic modification pelletizer, leading to accidents.

What problems should be paid attention to in the use of small twin screw extruder?

Many enterprises need to use small twin screw extruders in the process of production. in the process of using this kind of mechanical equipment, people mainly need to pay attention to the following two problems. only by mastering the correct operation method can we prevent the failure of the machine.

Operate small twin screw extruder in a positive direction

The small twin screw extruder must run forward in the process of work, and if the machine runs in the opposite direction, it will cause failure, so in this process, we should pay attention to observe and always pay attention to whether the small twin screw extruder is in reverse operation.

The advantage of operating small twin screw extruder in a positive direction

  1. Operating a small twin-screw extruder in a positive direction is important for several reasons:(Normally rotating the screw to the right is clockwise rotation)
  2. Efficient Material Conveyance: The positive direction ensures that the screws move in the intended manner, aiding the efficient conveyance of materials through the extruder.
  3. Optimal Mixing and Melting: The proper rotation direction facilitates effective mixing and melting of the materials within the extruder, promoting a homogenous and well-blended output.
  4. Screw Self-Cleaning: Operating in the positive direction helps in the self-cleaning mechanism of the screws, preventing material buildup and enhancing the extruder’s longevity.
  5. Consistent Output Quality: Maintaining the correct rotation direction contributes to a stable and consistent processing environment, resulting in higher-quality extruded products.
  6. Prevention of Mechanical Stress: Running the extruder in the intended direction helps prevent unnecessary mechanical stress on the components, reducing wear and tear.

Overall, operating a small twin-screw extruder in the positive direction is essential for achieving optimal performance, ensuring the desired material processing characteristics, and extending the lifespan of the equipment.

Avoid small twin screw extruder idling

The small twin screw extruder must not idle during operation.As our twin-screw has a cantilever beam structure, if there is no feeding, the idling screw will force collision between the screw and the screw, and between the screw and the cylinder, which will damage the equipment.

Avoiding idling in a small twin-screw extruder is crucial to prevent damage. Idling, or running the extruder without processing material, can lead to detrimental consequences for the equipment. Continuous idling may cause overheating, wear on mechanical components, and potential damage to the extruder’s screws. It is essential to operate the twin-screw extruder with material in the processing zone to ensure proper lubrication, cooling, and efficient functioning of the equipment.

In the process of using the small twin screw extruder, we should first ensure that the equipment can run in a positive direction, and secondly, this kind of equipment can not be idled without load, which will adversely affect the operation of the small twin screw extruder and cause damage to the equipment.
