The heat transfer in a batch mixer was studied using experiments and simulation. The mechanical torque was measured experimentally. The dissipated power was calculated and compared with the simulation. The heat transfer coefficient from experiment was calculate by a lumped approximation and compared with the data from simulation. The transient temperature profiles were obtained and the temperature distributions in the nip between rotors and barrel wall were shown.
