Analysis of an Alternative Extruder Screw Pump Design

  • G. A. Campbell , P. A. Sweeney and J. N. Felton


A new screw pump/extruder is analyzed with regard to the effect of the pump components on the pump output. The pump is constructed such that the barrel, screw core, and screw helix can all be rotated independently. Contrary to conventional wisdom, it is demonstrated that the major physical component of the pump which contributes to the output is the screw helix. A new theory is developed for pumping characteristics of this new pump and the theoretical analysis is compared with laboratory data. The theory compares quite well with the data.
