NFM/Welding Engineers has been building reactive extrusion equipment for the finishing and primary manufacture of emulsion, bulk, and solution polymers since twin-screw devices were first used for such purposes. Our technology allows us handle the large volumes of solvent, water, or vapor exiting the reactor and to finish polymers commercially from emulsion, solution, or slurry in a single machine.
Our technical expertise has naturally expanded to handling reactor products and performing the reactions themselves in our extruders.
NFM’s WE Series and TEM Series extruders offer optimum conditions in carefully controlled residence time, heat transfer, and mass transfer. Our technical team can provide ready solutions to limitations in reactive extrusion process development.
