SMS offers its customers a unique range of high viscosity processors and the associated application technology. The program provides tailor-made solutions for process steps with viscous and difficult to treat products. The processors operate over a wide range of viscosities and residence times.
In addition to the longstanding and well-known thin-film processors Filmtruder and Viscon, SMS has developed single- and twin-shaft horizontal, large-volume processors of the types Reactotherm, Reasil and Reacom.
Design criteria that determine which technology is used include:
- Residence time
- Vapor volume
- Mixing requirement
- Melt vs. friable solids
- Capital and operational cost
