Easy cleaning of hot melt extrusion? Why not!
A purge compound for hot melt extrusion terminates difficulties to clean the extruder after processing.
- HME Cleaner Plus (GMP) is an almost water-soluble purge compound with a micro-cleansing effect which solves this cleaning difficulty for the HME process.
- HME Cleaner Plus (GMP) provides effective clean-up because of its high detergency and low residual properties.
How to use HME Cleaner Plus (GMP):
After your actual extrusion of solid dispersion, set your extruder (mixing zones) at more than 160°C (depending on scale size). HME Cleaner Plus (GMP) may adhere to the barrels when it is below 160°C. In cases of extrusion at higher temperature (200°C), keep the temperature for the first extrusion with HME Cleaner Plus (GMP) until substitution is completed. Then adjust the temperature (170°C) for additional cleaning extrusion. HME Cleaner Plus (GMP) starts to decompose over 200°C.
