Manual Screen Changers

manual screen changersFrom the worldwide leader in filtration equipment, Xaloy offers the EM and XM manual screen changers.

Contamination of the melt steam by metal, wood, paper or internally generated black specks yields products that are unacceptable in appearance and/or performance. Manual screen changers are the least expensive and most suitable option for processes that require infrequent changes. Xaloy manual screen changers minimize costly downtime for screen replacement. With a simple swing of the handle lever during routine shutdown, clean screens are quickly brought on-line. No line disconnection occurs, and full production is re-established. As an option the EMP and XMP models add air assist to the shifting of the slide plate.

Integrate the System

Put an Xaloy melt pump after the screen changer and further increase the productivity of the extrusion line – all from one company.
