Polymer filtration for polymer production, polymer processing and extrusion - CSC-R
MAAG’s CSC-R large scale screen changer with curved screens is designed for the use of one-way filter screens which do not require cleaning after the simple and safe screen change. The screen bearing pistons belong to MAAG’s modular filter system and its patented design use 75% of the piston surface as active filtration area. Also this filter execution can be installed for vertical or horizontal melt flow directly at the reactor discharge melt pump or pelletizer booster melt pump to avoid additional piping for reduction of melt residence time.
Continuous CSC-R screen changers from MAAG, with their robust and leak-free operation, meet highest quality standards. The sturdy design is based on the proven double or quad piston design that operates reliably without any additional seals. On the filter inlet side, rheological optimized flow channels divide the melt stream into the 2 or 4 pistons at equal parts. Downstream of the curved screens, the cleaned partial melt streams converge again and flow out of the filter housing as a single polymer stream.
MAAG large scale screen changers can be installed for vertical or horizontal melt flow directly at the reactor discharge melt pump or pelletizer booster melt pump. The direct assembly of the screen changer to other process components without additional piping ensures the shortest possible line length and melt residence time between the extruder or reactor and the pelletizer.
