Extrusion of catalyst and petrochemical materials

An opportunity in laboratory extrusion with catalyst material.  We have recently had some considerable success with one of our customers working with the extrusion of small quantities of catalytic material.

  • The customer required an extruder that would be able to work with batches as little as 10 to 15 grams of material through an approximate 1 mm die but wished to increase the surface area of the resulting dried extrudate.
  • Working in conjunction with our designers and technical support team some options were investigated and the best being the use of “clover leaf” (or tri-lobe holes) in the extruder die.
  • If this sort of technology would be useful to you or if you have other ideas that you want to explore with us then why not contact us for a focussed discussion and see how we will help you.
