Abstract

Disclosed is a modifcation to a conventional melt mixing extruder apparatus which provides for improved process control reliability and maintenance of the extruder Place, for example, a L E X W , or other appropriate transparent material, window on both sides of the extruder gooseneck to enable the operator to see if there is a blockage of the gooseneck without opening the system. Placing a window on both sides allows the operator to illuminate the gooseneck from one side and observe from the other.
