Micro-extruder tailored to run fluoropolymer tubing, devices

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 | Permalink

American Kuhne Inc. (Ashaway, RI), which created the extruder, noted that these applications typically require an extruder that can process high-performance fluoropolymers like ETFE, PFA and FEP, at very low volumes down to 3.4 g/min (.45 lb/hr).
