Single Screw Extruder: The Complete Guide

Are you looking for a single screw extruder for your company?

Or are you new in the plastic making industry and you want information about a single screw extruder?

If yes, then you are in the right place.

This guide has everything you need to know about single screw extruder for plastic pipes.

It covers the basic terms of a single screw extruder, parts, how it works and its main applications.

By the end of this guide, you will be an expert in plastic pipe extruder equipment.

What is a Single Screw Extruder?

First, let me begin by defining plastic extrusion.

It is a continuous process that involves melting plastic material, then shaping it into a continuous profile.

For our case, we have the plastic pipes.

Basically, I can summarize this process as:

plastic pipe extrusion

Figure 1 Plastic extrusion – Photo courtesy: ACPFOTO

Obviously, to achieve this process, you may need different types of machines.

For the scope of our discussion here, you will go for single screw extruder for plastic pipes.

It looks like this – please watch the video below.

Now, back to another fundamental question – what is a single screw extruder?

First, let me begin by saying that a “single screw” is simply a design of plastic extrusion machine.

There is the twin screw extruder – but that is a subject for another day.

Single screw extrusion forms a fundamental part of plastic manufacturing process.

It’s a mechanism that builds pressure on melt resign, as it prepares it ready for extrusion.

single screw turning

Figure 2 Single screw turning

Normally, it creates pressure on the polymer, increasing the quality of the melt. As a result, you can produce high quality plastic pipes.

In most cases, single screw is suitable for processing plastic in its pure form.

Depending on the design of the machine, they can be stand-alone systems or, part of a large plastic pipe processing system.

Depending on the design of the single screw extruder for plastic pipes, it may have:

  1. Barrel
  2. Single screw
  • Control system
  1. Resign feeding system
  2. Drive mechanism, among other parts

Don’t worry, I will walk you through all that later in this guide – keep reading.

For now, let focus on yet another important aspect of single screw extruder.

Single Screw Extruder Basics

Perhaps before we go on, you need to understand some basics regarding single screw extruder. This includes understanding why you need to choose a single screw for your plastic pipe processing.

Also, it includes the advantages of utilizing a single screw extruder.

Let’s go through this.

1. Why you need single screw extruder in plastic pipe processing

This is my favorite question when it comes to a single screw extruder machine.


You need to know the exact reason why you need any type of plastic pipe manufacturing machine.


Figure 3 Single extruder plastc corrugated pipe extrusion machine

Plastic pipes take various shapes which it would have been difficult to shape without an extruder. Therefore, it implies that having this machine will save you a lot.

Here is a look at why you need a single screw extruding machine.

2.  Production of a variety of pipe products

Honestly, here are some pipe products which without a single screw extruder, it would be difficult to produce.

Pipe products like joints and pipe ducts are only available due to the single screw extruder which produces them.

The impact of this is that we can produce a properly functioning system.

3.  Availing water to households for use

As human beings, the availability of clean water for drinking is important. Due to advancement in technology, this is made possible.

Water treatment is done in a central place after which water reaches our homes by pumping. Water flows through pipes to reach us.

These pipes are a product of extruder. This implies that we would be traveling for miles to get this precious commodity.

4.  Improving agricultural sector

Another reason why a single screw extruder is important to us is in the agricultural sector. Technology enables us to do agriculture without necessarily relying on rainwater.

This requires irrigation which is possible when we have pipes for irrigation. Sprinkling pipes and dripping pipes are available through production by a single screw extruder.

5.  Proper human waste management

Living in a clean environment is crucial. Therefore, having a proper waste drainage system is necessary. The availability of PPR and corrugated pipes provides a solution to this. A single screw extruder makes these pipes.

Advantages of a Single Screw Extruder

When it comes to plastic pipe processing, a single screw extruder is an important machine for you to have. However, what makes this extruder to stand out?

HDPE plastic pipes

Figure 4 HDPE pipes

Well, here are some benefits that you get from using this machine.

  1. The single screw extruder is of high technology design making it have a well plasticizing function. This allows the use of materials which are in pellets or powder form where melting takes place.
  2. The extruder has strong stability and high extrusion speed. This is because of the pressure that builds up within the walls as a result of melting.
  • With an advanced gear transmission, there is very little noise during the extruding process. On top of this, the extruder machine can handle large production capacity.

Disadvantages of a Single Screw Extruder

Like any machine that is known to man, an extruding machine has got several setbacks. However, you can bear some of the setbacks of using an extruding machine.

corrugated plastic pipes

Figure 5 Corrugated plastic pipes

To better understand this, let’s have a look at these limitations.

They include:

  1. Since the transmission of the plastic materials is through friction, there is a limitation when it comes to the feeding performance.
  2. Some materials like the paste or powder possess difficulties in mixing. This makes using the machine in some processes unsuitable.
  • Generally, the single screw extruder is unsuitable when it comes to processes like polymer coloring.
  1. There is a poor exhaust effect due to the effect the screw has on the exhaust gas region.
  2. During extrusion, there is an increase in [pressure which causes an increase in the countercurrent. The result of this is that there is a decrease in productivity.
  3. With time, there is a decrease in space between the screw and the barrel. This is caused by the edge decreasing. The effect of this is that there is a decrease in the number of plastics extruded. The result being plastic overflows minimizing the plasticising effect which in turn reduces the productivity.

Parts of Single Screw Extruder for Plastic Pipes Machine

For you to be in a better position to understand an extruding machine, you need to understand its components. This includes various parts it constitutes and what they do.

parts of single screw extruder                                                         Figure 6 Parts of single screw plastic pipe extruder

Even though this machine may look simple and a single unit, the truth is that it is complex. You can note that when you start operating, various parts function as a whole to make the extrusion process a success.

It is therefore imperative that you get to understand these parts and how they relate to each other.

parts of plastic pipe extruder                                                                  Figure 7 Parts of plastic pipe extruder

In this section, I am going to illustrate these parts to you so that you can understand each part of an extruding machine.

Let’s start off.

a)      Gearbox

The gearbox comprises of the gear and the case. The gear is made of alloy steel to provide fatigue strength and wear resistance that the gearbox needs.

On the other hand, the case protects the gear, and as such, it is of high quality cast iron.

gearbox for single screw extruder

Figure 8 Gear box

The purpose of the gearbox is to reduce the motor speed in the screws.

b)      Screw and barrel

The screw refers to the circular groove hollow rotating element in the inner part of the barrel of a single screw extruder.

The main functions of the screw are:

  • To transport the polymer from the feed hopper to the extruder outlet.
  • To bring about the melting of the polymer.
  • To carry out any mixing required during the process.
  • To generate a stable and homogeneous supply of polymer melt.

The electric motor and the gearbox pre-set the rotation of the screw.

pipe extrusions         Figure 9 Pipe extrusion

The barrel refers to the part of the single screw extruder that covers the screw. It is normally a corrosion-resistant steel cylinder normally with strong compressive strength and heat.

Generally, the barrel has a length of between 15 to 30 times its diameter. The purpose of this is to make sure that the plastic materials heat up to the required standard.

The screw and barrel work hand in hand to extrude the plastic materials. The ability of them extruding is dependent on

  • The manufacturing process of the screw and barrel.
  • The nature of the plastic materials.
  • Which environment in which the machine operates

c)      Electric motor

The electric motor is what powers the functions of the entire extruding machine. This motor converts the electric energy to kinetic energy for the machine to utilize.

The size and nature of the electric motor depending on the extruding machine. Smaller machines tend to have a smaller electric motor, unlike a bigger extruding machine.

electric motor

Figure 10 Electric motor

However, the important aspect is that you need to ensure that the electric motor functions all the time properly. In case of malfunctions, always ensure you replace the motor with an original one so that your machine can function well.

d)      Temperature controller

You can find these controllers in the heating and cooling elements around the barrel. They serve the purpose of controlling the temperature to the one set.

Temperature maintenance is crucial for the extrusion of plastic. At an optimal temperature, the heating of the resins occurs uniformly.

This is important to prevent the stressing and warping of the finished product.

Due to pressure and friction along the barrel walls, the temperature is not always even. That is why temperature controllers are in place to regulate this.

e)      Inverter

The purpose of a single screw inverter is to transform direct current to alternating current.

The inverter receives direct current from the mains which are of low frequency and converts it to the alternating currency of high frequency.

The alternating currency provides energy for the functioning of the extruder.

f)       Heater

Along the barrel, you will find heaters together with thermocouples. The function of the heater is to control the temperature of the barrel.

For an extruder to work properly, the heaters must cover much of the barrel surface as possible. This minimizes the hot and cold regions along the length of the barrel.

g)      Air switch

The electric line of the single screw extruder needs protection in case of electric faults. The air switch does this.

h)      Vacuum hopper and loader

A vacuum hopper refers to a cooling tank which operates under low pressure. The aim of this is to control the shape formation of the plastic materials.

The vacuum hopper also helps in the final appeal of the plastic product regarding color. The reason is that the vacuum hopper allows the pipe to cool as it passes through it.

Single Screw Extruder Designs

Before we move on, it is important to have a look at its design.

The design of a single screw extruder is the arrangement of the various parts of the extruding machine.

Also, it entails how these parts relate to one another to work efficiently. That is the aim of this section.

Keep reading.

§  Single screw extruder design

A single screw extruder is made up of five elements. These are:

  • Screw
  • Extruder drive
  • Feeding hopper
  • Die

On top of the extruder, there is an upright structure known as the feeding hopper. It has a design that helps it to hold the resins and only allow them to flow steadily.

Gravitational pull assists the resins as the flow to the extruder.

The main element of the single screw extruder is the screw. Typically, it is helical in structure. You can locate the screw inside the fitting barrel.

The barrel can provide heat and cooling effect to the extruder. Its location outside the extruder helps it to regulate the temperature of the single screw extruder.

The gearbox and the speed motor propels the screw forward during operations.

The design of the screw is in such a way that has three areas. The feed, compressor and metering areas.

What happens in the feed area is that the screw holds the resins from the feeding hopper and conveys it to the jacket screw. It is at the jacket screw that the movement of the resins starts longitudinally.

As they move, the barrel which is hot heats up the resins. The friction that occurs within the barrel assists in producing the heat.

Also this friction assists in the movement of the resins forward.

The diameter of the screw is such that it increases as it moves forward while the height of the barrel decreases. This allows few resins to move forward which creates pressure in the barrel. There is a high temperature in this section which causes the resins to melt.

At the tail end of the extruder, there is the die. This serves the purpose of shaping the molten plastic into plastic products.

There are different types of dies depending on the plastic products that you want to extrude. They include:

  • Flat film die
  • Blown film die
  • Tubing die

For the screw to rotate, it needs a power supply. The extruder drive which is an electric motor does this.

Lastly, there is the gearbox which regulates the speed of the screw.

Working of Single Screw Extruder

Now that we have had a look at the design of the single screw extruder and its various parts, it is important to know how the extruder works.

To be honest, you cannot purchase a machine that you are not conversant with how it works. Understanding how it works helps you in cases of a machine breakdown.

extrusion process

Figure 12 Extrusion process

At the end of this section, you will be able to understand how the machine works step by step. In each step, I will explain to you the various components that are there as well as what happens.

Let’s start off.

Before we begin, you need to understand that the different forms of plastic pipes start off as resins. Resins are the raw materials for making plastics, and it comes either in pellet or powder forms.

§  Step 1 – Feeding the resins or pellets

In this step, you feed the resins into the hopper which is at on top of the machine. The reason that is on top of the machine is that it allows for the gravitational pull of the material down the machine.

In case you want to add additives, you can do that in this stage to give time for proper mixing of the materials.

As the materials flow down the machine, they pass through a rotating screw. The pace of the rotating screw slows down the number of materials entering the machine.

It also allows for the mixing of the pellets.

§  Step 2 – Melting of the resins

The screw‘s design is in such a way that there is a heat variance along the barrel. As the materials flow into the screw, they enter the barrel.

The heat in the barrel makes the plastic materials to melt as the materials move forward, the temperature increases.

This ensures the materials melt completely. Also, the increase in temperature along the barrel ensures that the plastic materials melt uniformly.

Another advantage of the gradual increase of temperature along the barrel is that it prevents the materials from overheating. Overheating may affect the quality of the plastic product.

As the molten materials reach the end of the barrel, they encounter a breaker plate. The role of the breaker plate is to filter impurities as the plastic move along the screen.

In case you want to achieve maximum uniform melting of the plastic materials, you can increase the number of the screen. Another way of that you can achieve this is by manipulating the porosity of the screen plates.

§  Step 3 – Actual extrusion process

When melting is complete, the molten plastic moves to the die through the barrel. Due to pressure, there is a force here that forces the materials into shapes. A mandrel which is at the center of the extrusion channel separates the plastic.

Pumping of air at high pressure into the mandrel structure is done to prevent the plastic from collapsing as it moves along the die.

You need to pay particular details to the die since any fault at this stage will create problems for your final product.

§  Step 4 – Cooling it down

After passing through the die, your plastic passes through the cooling zone. There are different types of cooling systems depending on your machine.

These are air and water cooling systems.

Air cooling system utilizes air to cool the barrel section of the extruder. It is common in plastic materials that don’t need much heat.

Air cooling system allows for the gradual decrease in temperature of the plastics and the barrel.

Water cooling system is common when the heating materials require a sudden change in temperature. You need to maintain the water cooling system to reduce fouling regularly.

§  Step 5 – Final finishing procedures

This is the last step which involves putting the final touches on your plastics. This includes drilling, printing, bending or cutting.

Having had a look at the principles of a single screw extruder, here are the common extrusion processes.

summary of plastic extrusion process

Figure 13 Summary of plastic extrusion process

§  Blown film extrusion

This process is useful when making plastic products like storage and grocery bags. The fitting of the cylindrical die is in an upright position. This helps in dragging the molten plastic up as it shapes and cools.

§  Co-extrusion

In this process, there is a simultaneous extrusion of a few layers of materials. For this to happen, more than one extruder feed the single screw extruder with different types of resins.

§  Over jacketing

It is a type of extrusion process where extrusion is done to coat a product. This is done to offer a protective layer to the product.

Cable jacketing is a common application of this process.

Main Applications of Single Screw Extruder in Plastic Pipes Industry

Yes, now you have the idea of what an extruding machine is and how it works, but where exactly do you use this machine?

This is an important question you need to ask yourself before you start off in the pipe making industry.

This section answers this question. You will learn which pipes exactly you can manufacture using the extruding machine.

Let’s begin.

§  Manufacture of PE pipes

One of the main application of a single screw extruder in the plastic industry is in the manufacture of PE pipes.

PE pipes

Figure 14 PE pipes

PE pipes refer to pipes produced from ethylene polymerizations.

The use of these pipes is in the following areas.

  1. Supply of water for use in mining
  2. Supply of irrigation water.
  • Supply of mineral slurry
  1. Supply of water for domestic use.
  2. In the making of gravity and vacuum sewer systems.

The properties that the PE pipes have makes it suitable for use in the above areas. These properties include:

  • Light in weight
  • Chemical resistance
  • Durable with long service lifespan
  • Flexibility
  • Overall toughness

Another form of PE pipes is the HDPE pipe. HDPE pipe is similar to the PE pipe with the difference arising from the density. HDPE has a high density than the PE pipe.

§  Manufacture of PPR Pipes

Another use of this machine is the manufacture of PPR pipes. These refer to polypropylene random copolymer pipes.

PPR pipes

Figure 15 PPR pipes

One of the main advantages of the PPR pipes is their resistance to heat. This makes them suitable for use in residential cold or hot water systems.

Other uses of this pipe include:

  • Underground heating system
  • Chemical materials and industrial water conveying system.
  • Pire and sanitary water pipelines.
  • Recycling system for hot water.
  • Air compressing system.

The manufacturing of these pipes entails equipping them for fusion welding for joining to each other.

§  Corrugated Pipes

You can also use this machine in the manufacture of corrugated pipes. These refer to pipes that contain ridges.

corrugated pipes

Figure 16 Corrugated pipes

These furrows and ridges run parallel to the pipe hence encircling the whole pipe.

A corrugated pipe has several advantages which include the following:

  1. It has a long lifespan which ensures maximum performance.
  2. The furrows and ridges make it appear light in weight. However, they are very strong.
  • These pipes have less leakage probability due to the strong material that makes it.
  1. These pipes have less operational cost when you compare to the other pipes during manufacturing.

Support Equipment for Single Screw Plastic Pipe Extrusion

Some of the main support equipment you need in when using single screw extruder include:

§  Extruding Die

The extruding die is that part of a single extruder that forces the molten materials to form plastic shapes. Its location is towards the end of the screw.

Some functions of the extruding die include:

  • It shapes the molten plastic to give it the shape it needs at a specific rate.
  • It gives the pipe the physical properties by controlling the product’s molecular orientation.
  • It controls the surface aesthetics of the product

The advantage of the extruding screw is that you can customize it to produce the kind of plastic product you need.

§  Cooling Tank

A tank that typically contains water through which the pipe passes through after extrusion for cooling.

These pipes are normally hot after extrusion hence need to reduce the temperature to minimize the chances of deformation.

§  Plastic Pipe Cutter

A plastic pipe cutter refers to a sharp knife edge whose purpose is to cut plastic pipes from sheet stock. Another use is that of trimming the plastic shapes.

§  Plastic Pipe Stacker or winder

After completion of the plastic production, you will need a place to hold them together. That is where the function of a plastic pipe stacker comes in.

It refers to equipment for holding the pipes together for proper arrangement. For pipes that have a diameter of below 110mm, you can use a winder.

The winder serves the same function as the stacker.

Single Screw Extruder Specifications

If you want to understand the specifications of a single screw extruder, you need to understand the individual models.

Overall, single screw extruders belong to two categories which are:

§  High efficient single screw extruder

A common characteristic of these types of screws is that they have an L: D ratio of 38:1. An L: D ratio refers to the ratio of the length of the flight length of the screw to the outside diameter of the screw.
