Readco Kurimoto introduced a continuous processor with a double clamshell barrel design that provides full access to the paddle and screw assembly to enable thorough cleaning and inspection processes while allowing for easy adjustments to the configuration.

The barrel top and bottom of the processor can be easily opened and closed with the push of a button, and the barrel is automatically locked in the open position for cleaning and maintenance, which eliminates the need for the cranes and hoists traditionally used to maintain the barrel. Additionally, the clamshell design reduces the potential of cross-contamination and offers flexible options for processors interested in constructing multiple product formulations with powders, liquids, and viscous materials on a single unit.
