Myth: Bigger screw diameters mean slower speeds, lower outputs and higher power consumption.
Reality: A Bigger diameter screw with higher L/D ratio gives more volume at reduced speeds (rpm). This ensures desired output with lower wear and tear of the components. Further lower speeds (rpm) means slower movement of the raw material inside the barrel resulting in better homogenisation of the polymer. The Higher L/D ratio increased higher output due to extra melting and mixing capacity. The power consumption is also lower due to the above characteristics of the system. In Short, this is a smart combination solution.
