Candle filter provides fine melt filtration
RSC Starlinger’s new candle filter, also known as the Rapid Sleeve Changer, includes multiple canisters; each canister has six candle filter elements, consisting of support pipes and sleeves. The filter media is made of nonwoven fibers.
What’s new? The candle filter, the first from the company capable of handling melt from PET bottle flakes, continuous filament and biaxially oriented film.
Benefits Fine melt filtration and maximum uptime. To make maintenance easy, the RSC has been designed so that the filter sleeves can be changed easily on the fly, without interrupting operation, a procedure that limits melt loss. Also, the filters are energy efficient.
