Neukirchen-Vluyn, 03.08.2017. Metal filter discs for polymer filtration are becoming increasingly important in plastic-processing film extrusion (BOPET, PET, PA, etc.), and melt filtration processes are becoming increasingly complex. Metal filters ensure the highest quality standards in polymer production. At the same time, they offer answers to the requirements of the international market. The fact that these filters are becoming increasingly precise and costly to produce is obvious. While they used to be replaced and exchanged regularly, there is now an economically and ecologically motivated trend towards cleaning and re-use. A metal filter disc costs about 200 to 500 Euros today. It can easily be cleaned 50 to 60 times using SCHWING Technologies process solutions – and all without sacrificing filter quality.
Complete cleaning shops
As an international market leader, SCHWING is an expert in comprehensive thermal cleaning solutions. For 47 years, the German manufacturer has been a specialist in cleaning plastic-contaminated metal parts and the only worldwide expert for complete, tailor-made cleaning equipment. "So-called cleaning shops guarantee a deep-pore removal of polymers," says Managing Director Thomas Schwing, "without residue or damage, and with a guaranteed longer life." The long-term expertise of the well-known SCHWING specialists guarantees perfect cleaning results in this process.
Depending on customers’ requirements, the company can set up individualized, targeted cleaning shops with a wide range of cleaning and post-treatment equipment. A tailor-made data sheet documents the entire process and offers reliable workflow support for customers. "We have had the positive experience," says Schwing, "that even new and inexperienced customers can easily and successfully learn to work with our hardware through appropriate training during commissioning." In this way, filter discs can be optimally freed from polymers in less than 48 hours.
