To design a curvilinearly tapered coat-hanger die that delivers a uniform liquid sheet, we follow the procedure of Matsubara (1, 2) and redefine the following dimensionless variables:
Important Parameters for the Curvilinearly Tapered Coat-Hanger Die.
oc] and T are independent of b; this implies that the curvilinearly tapered coat-hanger die designed for m = 1 can deliver any slowly reacting materials with perfect lateral flow uniformity and equal residence time distribution.
The advantage of using a curvilinearly tapered coat-hanger die is that the ratio of the residence time in the manifold and in the slot section is preset as a design variable.
a T-die, a linearly tapered, and a curvilinearly tapered coat-hanger die.
For the curvilinearly tapered coat-hanger die, the ratio m of the residence time in the slot section to that in the manifold is preset as a design variable.
Matsubara (14) concluded his work on slit dies by listing the advantages of curvilinearly tapered coat-hanger manifold dies, which he found to provide the best balance between good performance and fabrication costs.
