Continuous kneader

Accessories / Options:

  • Kneading blades and kneading chamber cover which can be heated and/or cooled
  • High viscosity kneading blades (at reduced chamber volumes)
  • Separate heating and cooling zones enabling adjustable temperature profiles
  • Temperature control systems
  • Discharge nozzle or gear pump for discharge, incl. molding and granulation
  • Wear-resistant coating in the product container
  • Automatic start-up and shutdown program
  • Dosage system for all solids and liquids
Applications for the CONTERNA multi-chamber kneading machine:
  • Silicone compounds
  • Master batches for the automotive industry
  • Ceramic compounds
  • Hard metal compounds
  • Graphite compounds
  • Catalyst compounds
  • Biodegradable plastics
Advantages of the continuous kneading process over batch processes:
  • Fully continuous production with no breaks
  • Easy to automate
  • Less space required for the same production quantity
Advantages over conventional extrusion processes:
  • More intensive thorough mixing
  • Less space required
  • Longer, adjustable residence time in the mixer
  • High solids contents achievable
  • Flexible configuration of the machine (depending on product requirements) enabling product change without conversion of the machine
