Effective single piston screen changer for reliable melt cost effective filtration solution - SCC


The compact single-piston screen changers SSC from MAAG provide a cost-effective filtration alternative for extrusion applications which allow for interruptions in the melt stream during screen changeovers. SSC operate without any additional seal. Their sturdy construction guarantees reliable and leak-free filtration of polymer melts. The rheologically optimized flow 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 filtration size. The screen changer is operated by a hydraulic piston.
