Compact screen changer for reliable melt filtration
The compact single-piston screen changers SSC from MAAG provide an alternative for extrusion applications which allow for interruptions in the melt stream during screen changeover. SSC operate without any additional seal and their sturdy construction guarantees reliable and leak-free filtration of polymer melts. The rheologically optimized fl ow channel directs the melt flow optimally and with a short residence time into the screen cavity. The breaker plate is fitted with screen mesh suitable for the required fi ltration size. The screen changer is operated by a hydraulic piston.
