Screen Changers

Manual speed screen changers:

With two hardened breaker plates. Special torpedo type design that utilizes extruder pressure to prevent leakage. Allows for filtering of contaminants and homogenizing temperature variations. Complete with heater assembly and knurled grip handled. Hydraulic unit complete with sliding plate and high speed accumulator. Accumulator allows for bubble preservation during filter changes.

Hydraulic Screen Changers:

Manufactured from high grade tool steel. Two hardened breaker plates and slide plate. Adjustable sealing mechanism to prevent leakage. High speed motion sliding plate with hydraulic accumulator or standard low speed motion. Cartridge heaters.

Advantages:

Filters contaminants from polymer melt. Continuous extrusion while changing filters. Reduces temperature variations in the melt. High speed motion allows for bubble preservation during filter changes.
