Gneuss Unveils SFXmagnus, Premium Pressure Sensor, Improved RSFgenius
Gneuss Kunststofftechnik GmbH, Germany, recently launched the SFXmagnus rotary filtration system,
the Premium pressure sensor and the next-generation RSFgenius fully automatic filtration system.
The SFXmagnus, which uses the same principle as the RSFgenius, features a new drive technology, and a larger screen capacity and low screen change frequency without an integrated screen cleaning. The company says production costs are lower, but performance remains at a high level on this process- and pressure-constant filtration system. Suitable for all types of polymers and viscosities, the SFXmagnus is simple to operate and has an encapsulated design that eliminates external influences on the melt, helping to provide consistent melt purity and product quality.
The Premium pressure sensor features an innovative diaphragm technology that contributes to product durability, and a new design that protects the flexible capillary. The patented sensor tip can be heated, so the sensor can be removed even when the equipment is cold.
The upgraded RSFgenius can be used for all polymers including those containing bromine or fluorine additives. Features include: an increase of maximum active screen area to 465 square inches, and of automatic screen re-uses to 400; available micron ratings as low as 1 to 2 microns; a comprehensive process data monitoring system that enables expanded process control and monitoring; and the ability to make adjustments and service the machine without influencing the process.
