Lab-Compounder KETSE 20/40: The ideal solution for laboratory application

The lab-compounder KETSE 20/40 D has an own motor and thus is independent from a drive unit. With this integrated motor higher speeds (max. 1200 rpm) than with a twin screw extruder with additional drive unit can be achieved. The solid design as well as the convincing technical features make the KETSE 20/40 to be the ideal solution for laboratory applications

The processing unit of the KETSE 20/40 consists of a horizontally divided barrel with a length of 40 D which can be tilted open and allows visual assessment of the processing steps. Thus comfortable removal and quick cleaning of the barrel is allowed. In addition to the main metering, metering or venting ports at a barrel length of 10 D, 20 D and 30 D are available. Necessary side feeders can be installed at a processing length of 12 D and 22 D.

The modular screw conception offers all individual processing possibilities. Further Brabender® accessories like metering systems as well as various downstream equipment are available to build complete extrusion lines.

General Information

The scale-down of the machine in combination with the comprehensive adaptability to almost each processing task, and the easy handling of the system, explain the distinction of the KETSE 20 / 40 D as an excellent laboratory apparatus.

The modular screw conception offers all individual processing possibilities. Further Brabender® accessories like metering systems as well as various downstream equipment are available to setup complete extrusion lines.

The Lab-Compounder KETSE 20/40 D has an integrated drive with a power of 11 kW and reaches speed up to max. 1200 pm. The clam shell barrel (length: 40 D) is divided horizontally, can be tilted open, and allows visual assessment of individual processing steps. Furthermore, a comfortable mounting of the screws and a quick cleaning of the cylinder is possible.

In addition to the main metering, metering or venting ports at a barrel length of 10 D, 20 D and 30 D are available. Side feeding can be installed at 12 D and 22 D length.

The Lab-Compounder KETSE 20/40 D is supported by CAN open bus technology. Recording and evaluation of measuring data as well as control of the entire machine system are done with easy-to-handle software under Windows®.

Of course, the necessary additional equipment like measuring and control units or metering systems (gravimetric, volumetric, liquid) as well as down-stream equipment is available, too, allowing for modular setup of complete extrusion lines
