Extrusion and Compounding
.
Extrusion is a process to create new materials or to generate a new property. At the Bio Processing Innovation Centre, the Century CX-40 HT extruder can compound material and extract value-added chemicals from biomass. The pilot scale extruder allows companies to scale up their concept before commercialization. When appropriately adjusted, the feeding rate ranges from kg/hr to hundreds of kg/hr. The 40 mm twin co-rotate extruder can be used as a device to research and develop new products/processes, and to scale up your recipe and process on pilot production.

  • Compounding: blending and compounding of natural fibre with biopolymer to make new materials
  • Reactive vessel (extraction and pre-treatment of raw material): continuously extract value-added components from biomass and other agricultural waste streams; pre-treat of biomass to improve efficiency of downstream processing
  • Thermal reactor: allows controlled temperature and pressure parameters of extruder to develop new products and processes
Injection Molding

Specimen preparation for mechanical property testing, optical testing and rheometry. The Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MiniJet Pro helps to optimize the development process, enabling testing of mechanical properties for specimens ranging from 2-12.5 mL.
  • Specimen: several molds such as ASTM D638 Type IV and ISO 527-2-1A are available
  • Small prototype: other standardized molds for common mechanical testing as well as customized molds can be ordered upon request
