HAAKE™ MiniLab II Micro Compounder

cq5dam.thumbnail.250.250 (1)Designed to provide you with precisely controlled reactive extrusion of high viscous melts using only a sample amount of 5 grams or 7 cm3, the Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MiniLab II Micro Compounder is ideal for compounding expensive or small scale materials such as nano-composites, bio-polymers or pharmaceuticals. The HAAKE MiniLab II Micro Compounder also allows you to simultaneously record the rheological properties to document structural changes.

By using the optional force feeder with the HAAKE MiniLab II Micro Compounder, continuous extrusion with very small volume flows is possible. The system is based on a conical, twin-screw compounder with an integrated backflow channel. Due to the channel and a bypass valve, the residence time is well defined. Two pressure transducers are integrated in the backflow channel. They allow the measurement of (relative) melt viscosity (counter-rotating screws required). The HAAKE MiniLab II Micro Compounder can be used with co- or counter-rotating screws and is equipped with an inert gas flush system.

The HAAKE MiniLab works as a stand-alone unit with data export or as a fully computer-controlled system.

The HAAKE MiniLab II Micro Compounder Features: HAAKE™ MiniLab II

  • Co- and counter-rotating twin screws
  • Integrated viscosity measurement
  • Automatic bypass operation for circulation/extrusion
  • Pneumatic feeding
  • LCD screen for graphical data display
  • Manual or computer control
  • Split barrel exit for easy cleaning
  • Compact enough to fit into laboratory fume hood

Compatible with the force feeder for quick analysis—much faster than performing the same test with a standard lab extruder.

Recommended for material science research, such as testing expensive additives and developing new formulations.

Comprehensive Material Characterization for Polymers

In the R&D Laboratory a new polymer is created by synthesizing small amounts of polymers or by blending existing raw materials to get the best performance for the final product.






The HAAKE MiniLab II needs a sample amount of 5g only.




Twin Screw Extruders

Twin-screw extruders are well-established in the industry for mixing, compounding and processing of viscous materials.
