Xaloy is introducing nXmi, designed to provide superior dispersion of additives and fillers in thermoplastic polymers.

Operating in line with conventional single-and twin-screw extruders, nXmix provides thorough distributive and intense dispersive mixing action but with low shear, low process temperatures and low energy consumption.

The nXmix is a two-stage device. The first stage uses an incised rotor to generate high-shear mixing of very short duration, breaking up agglomerates and disentangling polymer chains to reduce viscosity in preparation for the next mixing stage. The second stage involves a specially shaped rotor and stator, each having a multitude of pockets in a helical configuration; this stage produces elongation flow with thorough mixing at very low shear rates and temperatures.
