According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the twin-screw means to have two propellers: a right-handed screw propeller and a left-handed screw propeller parallel to each other one on each side of the plane of the keel.
In comparison to single-screw extrusion machines, twin-screw extrusion machines can be used extensively for mixing, compounding, and reacting polymeric materials. With the continuous production of highly homogeneous and finely structured products, twin screw extruders are widely used for producing a wide variety of end products, converting materials, and managing product quality more consistently, by adjusting screw speed to compensate for wear.
