2. Use the correct cleaning method
When cleaning the screw, it is necessary to close the feeding port at the bottom of the hopper first, and then reduce the speed of the screw to 15-25r/min. This speed needs to be maintained until the melt flow at the front end of the die will no longer flow.
There are specialties in the industry, and professionals do professional work. When cleaning, you need to observe the screw speed and torque from the control panel, and you need to observe the pressure of the system. During the entire cleaning process, do not remove the die first, wait until The processed material is completely replaced with clean resin, and then the machine is stopped and the die is removed, and then the screw is started to allow the clean resin to flow out.
When cleaning the barrel, the heating temperature should be set at 200°C. After the barrel reaches this temperature, cleaning will begin.
