Screen changer redesign improves flow, breaker plate

Issue: February 2017

BPC screen changer High-Technology’s continuous filter media screen changer is designed to facilitate the formation of stable polymer seals that result in reliable, fully automatic screen advancement. Extruder head pressure advances the screen as cold, circulating water forms leak-proof seals.

What’s new? A new flow channel and breaker plate geometry. 

Benefits Improved flow of high-viscosity polymers, including flexible PVC. The BPC’s improved design also has performed well with highly filled polymers, high-viscosity polymers and other materials that require filtration as fine as 55 microns.
