Updated screen changer at home with virgin and post-consumer resin

June 29, 2020
The KCH continuous belt screen changer is more rugged and efficient.

KCH continuous belt screen changer This Key Filters-branded screen changer from Parkinson Technologies is designed to keep an extrusion line running with minimal input from the operator. It works equally well with extruders processing post-consumer resins or virgin resins.

What’s new? Version 2.1. This update introduces design changes and the use of more robust parts.

Benefits Improved performance. Inlets and outlets have been modified to triple the flow rate compared with earlier versions, providing increased cooling, while vital sensors have been relocated to protect them from high-heat areas. The new design lets heated polymer bypass the puller assembly, speeding cleanup and preventing damage in case the sealing plug is lost.
