Screen changers

Polymer Handling

Dust particles from the environment, metal fragments detached from the machines, material waste from previous processing steps, and other factors, can cause problems in the production of high-quality polymers and previously mentioned media. Such contaminants interrupt production, and degrade the quality of the end-product, reducing its value and marketability. This applies equally to small and very large plants that process polymers of all kinds. Screen changers are used to prevent this type of damage and to optimize your production process.
A wide range of screen changers to produce highest quality plastics, hotmelts, adhesives and gum base! Manual, discontinuous and continuous with optional automatic backflush.

The use of screen changers

Screen changers are used to optimize the quality of your product and protect your pump and downstream equipment from damage caused by contamination without interrupting the production process. The systems are always adapted to the individual situation of each plant.

Depending on the requirements of your process, we offer solutions for a process-constant production, solutions for processes that allow a short interruption in the melt flow for screen changes and manually operated screen changers for simple operation.  Let’s talk!
