Optimal integration of all units
The philosophy for Leistritz control and measuring technology is integration of all common upstream and downstream units which are required for a compounding process into a single visualization and control unit. Whether this means the monitoring of gravimetric metering, the start-up routine for underwater pelletizing or the regulation of a melt pump doesn't really matter.
Real time measurement
Leistritz elongational rheometer
Shear- and elongational viscosity combined
In order to constantly monitor the melt quality the decisive parameters have to be measured during the process. So far only single points could be checked along the viscosity curve by means of online measurements (without melt flowing back into the process).
With the Leistritz elongational rheometer you have more options: First of all, it is the first Inline-Rheometer ever (with melt flowing back into the process), which combines measuring shear and elongational viscosity!
