Polymerization & Devolatilization
Polymerization is a process of reacting monomer molecules together in a chemical reaction to form polymer chains or three-dimensional networks.
Devolatilization is the removal of volatile substances from a solid. It is one of the most important operations in polymer manufacture.

Tech Features & Advantages
a) We need extruder with long shaft 60–76L/D, even connect the two extruder in series to get enough residence time for reacting and enough zone for devolatilization.
b) 20~40% monomer molecules will be suck out by strong vacuum system with heat exchanger and collecting tank.
c) Oil heating for high precision control of temperature.
