  • Patent number: 11021594
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing wet rubber masterbatch obtained from raw materials in the form of at least filler, dispersion solvent, and rubber latex solution, includes an operation in which the rubber latex solution is mixed and coagulated with a slurry solution containing the filler and the dispersion solvent to manufacture a filler-containing rubber coagulum; and a heating operation in which a single-screw extruder is used to carry out dewatering, drying, and plasticization of the filler-containing rubber coagulum in a single operation. The method satisfies conditions: 0.02?C/(A×B)?0.15, where A indicates, for a portion of the screw which is located at the dewatering portion, the pitch volume (mm3), B indicates rotational speed (rpm) of the screw, and C indicates feed volume per minute (mm3/min) of the filler-containing rubber coagulum which is fed into the single-screw extruder.
