AP SCREEN CHANGER

Manual continuous and self-cleaning screen changer for low-contaminated materials

AP is the perfect screen changer for low-contaminated materials. AP screen changer is entirely made in Italy by Cofit; AP is a patented product.

HOW AP WORKS

AP is a self-cleaning screen changer. The AP filtering cartridges are cleaned or replaced without production cycle interruption; your extrusion system will reach and maintain extreme stability during the extrusion run, your manufacturing process will reach top quality.

TWO PARALLEL FILTERING CARTRIDGES

The AP screen changer incorporates two parallel filtering cartridges that are automatically cleaned one by one, an exclusive Cofit patent, without being taken out of the equipment. While a cartridge is in cleaning mode, the melt flows uninterruptedly through the second filtering cartridge. And your extrusion line is never stopped!

Screen replacement is required only periodically. Screen replacement is done without interruption of the extrusion process.

AP ADVANTAGES

  • economical and reliable
  • no hydraulics or pneumatics involved
  • no control panel required
  • maintenance reduced to the minimum
  • strong and durable
  • self-cleaning feature, low-cost machine operation, the cheapest available on the market
  • operating pressure values up to +500 bars

Aside from being economical, AP screen changer is highly durable investment for your low-contaminated materials:

  • SELF-CLEANING: Protected by exclusive Cofit patent, AP filter cartridges get cleaned without being taken out of the block.
  • CONTINUOUS: AP filtering cartridges can be cleaned and replaced without production interruption.
  • CHEAP: AP screen changer does not require any expensive control panel or hydraulic control units. Maintenance and spare parts are reduced to the minimum.

THE CHEAPEST SCREEN CHANGER FOR UNINTERRUPTIBLE EXTRUSION SYSTEMS

In many plastic extrusion processes, it is crucial to keep extruders running 24/7, while limiting ordinary maintenance to the minimum.

We are well aware that your filtration system, once started, must be run and not stopped for a long, long time. Cofit AP Screen changers are specially made to that end.

AN ENHANCED, UNINTERRUPTABLE, LONG-LASTING and USABLE SCREEN CHANGER

AP Screen changers have been redesigned from previous version, and involve the introduction of important technological innovations, with great attention paid to usability.

AP screen changers are the visible results of new layouts and upgraded internal concepts. AP screen changer provides for clean up of the filter cartridges without their removal, and without interruption of the extrusion process.

A solution that makes it possible to run your materials without extrusion run interruption.

A SOLID, RELIABLE, DURABLE INVESTMENT

Cofit AP screen changer is solid, reliable and durable. And it is cheap, too, if compared with other continuous equipment. AP screen changer is made from a steel body for low maintenance, and trouble-free lifecycle. There are no moving parts to be driven by hydraulic or pneumatic power units; nickel plating provides high protection against wear.
