Abstract

The calendering of non-Newtonian fluids by two rotating cylinders to produce thin films of fluids finds wide application in polymer sheet-making and food-drying industries. The present work proposes a new one-film theory of calendering of power law fluids for unequal radii and surface velocities of the calendering cylinders. The relationship between the dimensionless thickness of the calendered fluid, DELTA //e* and that of the incoming fluid, DELTA //i* is shown to be a function of the ratio of the surface velocities of the cylinders and the power law index. The result further shows that DELTA //e* tends to asymptote after the second decade of DELTA //i*.
