The NANO 16 twin screw extruder, integrated with a new micro-plunger feeder, is used in the evaluation stage, so the extrudability of the formulation is tested (this is no basis for scale-up calculations). By means of its 3-lobed screw elements, it facilitates facilitates the continuous extrusion process for batch samples from 20 to 100 grams. The NANO 16 utilizes a segmented design for barrels and screws, a stainless steel process section, and as an option a state-of-the-art control/data acquisition.

The NANO 16 is mainly characterized by the micro-plunger feeder. Until now, there was no possibility to run very small batches on a twin screw extruder in a starved fed mode. The micro-plunger feeder consists of a piston which slides within a stainless steel tube. The tube is filled with a 20 to 100 cc batch. After being positioned to the bottom of the feed barrel, the piston is pushed upwards by a variable speed drive to facilitate precision feeding at extremely low rates.

The NANO 16 has a torque of 42 Nm, which facilitates processing of highly viscous ingredients.

The NANO 16 is also available as a version with a 12 L/D processing unit and an even smaller micro-plunder feeder. This way small batches of up to 10 cc can be processed.
