Safer processing equipment for preparational energetic materials is being investigated. higher product quality is expected through the use of a better continuous mixer: the non-intermeshing, counter-rotating twin screw extruder. Parameters are being identified which are expected to demonstrated that the geometry of the counter-rotating twin screw extruder has an inherently preferred mixing performance for mixing of energetic materials. When successful, anticipated applications are: superior product consistency as a function of efficient mixing; and reduced safety risks through lower processing and lower shear rates
