The system asset lies in its continuity. Gorillabelt T guarantees uninterrupted melt flow without any significant pressure peak during screen changings. The material normally flows through two melt channels, each channel has a screen belt filtering impurities. Each channel features two valves to close it when required and one mechanical knee to move the plate that sticks together with the breaker to make a seal and prevent any melt leaks.
Anytime the pressure value reaches the set threshold, the screen change process starts. The two valves close the channel, the plate is moved of few millimeters to let the screen free to advance and replace the dirty section with a clean and fresh one. Once the filtering screen has been changed, the two valves reopen the channel. The whole cycle lasts about 10 seconds.
