Berlyn expands line of ECM screen changers for extrusion applications

March 25, 2015

BCM-20M  Berlyn ECM Inc. has expanded its line of hydraulic slide-plate screen changers for extrusion applications. The product's metallurgy and the application of specialty alloys make it possible to process highly corrosive fluoropolymers.

What's new?  The size. With a diameter of 20 inches, Berlyn claims the screen changer is the largest available. 

Benefits  Reduced downtime. With the press of a button, users can make a screen change in less than five seconds without halting production, as opposed to manual systems, which require shutting down the extrusion line to service the filter pack and can take as long as several hours.
