Melt Filter ERF350
30 Percent Higher Throughput
At NPE2018 Ettlinger Kunststoffmaschinen GmbH, Königsbrunn, Germany, will introduce its newest melt filter ERF350 which raises throughput to a whole new level for a global customer base. This advancement in the filtration of contaminated polymer feedstock is a further development on the proven ERF250, which has become the most popular model in the Ettlinger portfolio.
Since 2004, nearly 400 continuous melt filters in the ERF series have been installed successfully around the world. Ettlinger ERF filters are suitable for filtering all standard polyolefins and polystyrenes as well as numerous engineering plastics such as styrene copolymers, TPE and TPU. Foreign particles such as paper, aluminum, wood, elastomers or high-melting polymer composites can be reliably removed from base materials containing up to 18% contaminants. The new ERF350 is the first model in a new, performance enhanced generation. Depending on the type and level of contamination in the melt and the selected screen size, it achieves a maximum throughput of 8300 lbs/hr. This represents an increase of around 28% compared to the proven ERF250 using the same filtration surface, the same small footprint and high energy efficiency.
Managing Director Volker Neuber comments: “Our ERF high performance melt filters are a highly efficient way for recycling plants to strengthen their competitiveness in what is a fiercely contested market. Companies which process large quantities profit greatly from our technology, and above all from the awesome performance of the ERF500, which is suitable for throughputs of up to 13,200 lbs/hr.”
