Nesquehoning

At our Nesquehoning, PA plant, we offer a range of single- and twin-screw extruder lines, as well as continuous mixing lines. A wide range of length/diameter ratios, feed and vent configurations allows us to optimize the output and level of homogenization to your specific needs.

Since overall throughput and product quality are dependent on many parameters, including diffusivity, melting points, head pressure, viscosity, extruder size and drive combination, as well as L/D ratio, we urge you to contact our engineering team early in your development so they can offer guidance as to the best processing protocol.
