The article discusses the influence of the moisture content of raw materials and the temperature of the extruder die on the engine torque and specific mechanical energy. An EK-40 laboratory extruder and a slot die / rheometer combination were used to measure the torque. The torque decreased with increasing humidity and temperature of the die. It was found that the temperature of the matrix is the most significant parameter affecting the torque and specific mechanical energy.
