Devolatilization processes are often a key issue in the production of high-quality polymer products. With legislation and stricter environmental requirements demanding lower residual organic volatiles in plastic materials, efficient devolatilization is mandatory for any modern polymer production plant.
After polymerization, the product usually still contains significant amounts of unreacted monomers, oligomers, solvents, and other impurities. Some of these remaining chemicals are harmful or react with the polymer chains during later processing, making their removal an important step to obtain a commercially usable polymer.
The removal of volatiles from polymer melts is a complicated task not only because diffusion from the polymer is strongly limited by viscosity. Solvents and monomers often also exhibit rather high boiling points, making it more difficult to evaporate them at temperatures that do not harm the polymeric matrix.
