A new line of Yellow Jacket rubber extruders are designed and manufactured to meet the special challenges that are presented in the precision processing of rubber into extruded tubing, profiles, wire insulation, cable coating, sheet, film, rod, and many other extrusion applications. Standard screw sizes in inches are 5/8, 3/4, 1, 1-1/4, 1-1/2, 1-3/4 ,2, 2-1/2, 3-1/2, and 4-1/2. The company has incorporated many features to aid in the precision processing of rubber. The slide-mounted roll feed has been designed to aid in the feeding of the rubber strips to the extruder screw and has its own ratio-controlled drive system that is electronically linked to the extruder screw drive. Water-cooled feed sections are available in standard, tangential, and tapered ID styles and are said to be easily changed for different rubber materials. Electrically heated/water-cooled cast heaters are used on the barrel for easy maintenance and temperature stability. The closed-loop water cooling system features microprocessor-based controls, flow valves, recirculating pump with reservoir, and a heat exchanger.
