General Buss Kneader Advantages
- Split barrel for easy cleaning
maintenance and modifications
- Segmented screw and liners
- Working principle ensures
optimal temperature and shear
control
- Highest mixing efficiency for
max. filler loading
- Liquid tempering of barrel and
screw for perfect process
conditions
- Exact measurement of melt
temperature via thermocouples
in pins
- Max. feeding of liquid additives
via injection pins
- Newest Kneader series with
more efficient 4-flight screw

Full modularity of process section
The screw consists of
individual elements, which
can easily be exchanged or
replaced.
Also kneading pins and barrel
liners can easily be exchanged
or replaced.

Summary

The Buss Kneader is a compounding extruder with rotating-oscillating
screw interacting with static kneading pins in the barrel

This special working principle combines perfect dispersive and
distributive mixing with minimal heat up of the melt

Using a Buss Kneader is mainly advisable for temperature and shear
sensitive applications

For easy cleaning and quick maintenance all Buss Kneaders have a
split barrel design for opening

The kneading pins can be also effectively used for liquid injection into
the process chamber and for measuring exact melt temperature along
the barrel
