Gneuss Filtration Technology will exhibit several different models of their patented Rotary Filtration Systems at the K trade fair this year (Hall 9, Booth A38).
These continuous filtration systems are characterised by a filter disk on which the screen cavities are located in a ring pattern. Screens can be changed on the part of the filter disk that is not active in the melt channel, while the production process continues to run without any interruptions or disturbances.
The new SFneos was developed to combine the characteristics of several older models into one simple and cost-efficient solution.
The SFneos filtration system is suitable for applications that benefit from a continuous, pressure and process constant screen changer, but that don’t require back-flushing. The SFneos 90 the company will display has an active screen area of 260cm2.
Gneuss will also exhibit two KF screen changers, a KF 75 with an active screen area of 44cm2, and a KF 110 with an active screen area of 95cm2, which will be installed in a blown film line at Brazilian machinery manufacturer Carnevalli’s booth (Hall 16, Booth C70).
Gneuss Extrusion Technology will show a complete Gneuss Processing Unit (GPU) including a second generation Multi Rotation System MRS110 extruder, a fully automatic melt filtration system RSFgenius 90 and a new style online viscometer VIS, for the processing of 600kg/h of undried and uncrystallised polyester (PET).
The Gneuss Processing Unit (GPU) has been available for more than a decade now and has proven itself for the reprocessing of highly contaminated materials without pre-drying, especially bulky PET waste such as post-consumer bottle flakes and industrial waste from fibre and film manufacture, as well as polystyrene, nylon and other hydrophil polymers.
