dc.description.abstractExtrusion-a unit operation in polymer processing has been in extensive use since the great age of plastic technology. It is a simple operation that enables within one equipment the sequential conveying of solid polymer chips or powder, their melting, mixing, pumping and shaping via a die into a variety of high tonnage and/or value products. Pipes, bottles, films are the most common examples but the list of applications is endless from tiny micromoulded parts to large structural profiles. Extrusion is not limited to plastics but is used hot or cold to process soft solids like food, industrial and pharmaceutical pastes, as well as metals and ceramics. Most of the advances in extrusion processing have concentrated in improving the essential functions of extrusion: solid conveying, melting, pumping and mixing. The literature abounds with descriptions of such advances pushing the limits of the extrusion in an incremental way. In this paper, we describe step-changes in enhancing extrusion, which opens up new applications to better old technology-make them safer, cheaper and cleaner. The new designs presented in this paper have also the potential to develop new reactor technology for viscous fluids.en
