The SCRAPEAWAY Continuous Melt Filtration System may look similar to other filters, but it is completely different. In fact, it’s better built and better supported than any filter of its kind thanks to the Cofit technology. The machine is made in USA and it is distributed worldwide with the exception of Italy.
SCRAPEAWAY, general features
The new SCRAPEAWAY system makes possible uninterrupted extrusion, even when processing highly contaminated materials. Unlike conventional screen changers, which require extensive and constant operator attention, the SCRAPEAWAY – which stands for Continuous Filter Operation – can operate automatically. As extruded material enters the unit, it passes through a stainless-steel screen plate that is micro drilled and hard faced, while contaminants are caught on the screen-plate surface. When waste builds up and back pressure reaches a preset level, a rotating blade sweeps the screen and removes the contamination through a discharge port. The SCRAPEAWAY handles a broad range of materials including PE, PP, PS, PC, and ABS, and can operate at temperatures up to 280° C (536° F) and pressures up to 200 bar (2.900 psi). The filter can handle up to 10% paper and other foreign objects up to 19 mm (0.75 inch) in diameter. Contaminants such as metal, wood, paper, textile fibers, unmelted plastic granules, and low percentages of aluminum, lead, copper, rocks and other impurities readily tolerated.
