BKG® HiCon™ R-Type 250

Recycling filter for highly contaminated applications

Principle:
Separation in a continuous filtration process 

Use:
Medium to highly contaminated plastic melt polymers from the family of olefins and styrenes

Applications:
Recycling

The contaminated melt flows through the fixed, cylindrical strainer tube from the inside out. The micro-conical holes provide efficient filtration of contaminated melt. The contaminants are separated from the melt and then scraped by a rotating blade shaft from the surface of the strainer tube. The cooled discharge screw removes the collected contaminants from the machine out. The speed of the blade shaft/discharge screw can be adjusted depending on the throughput, contaminat level and discharge rate, thus ensuring a continuous working process with a clean, open filtration area with low melt loss.

 

Benefits:

  • Minimal melt loss
  • Robust and low-wear design
  • Constant melt pressure behind the filter
  • No outlet side; minimum pressure required
  • User-friendly handling: independent strainer tube can easily be changed by the operator
  • Low operating costs through long service life and regeneration ability of the filter media
  • No edge flow around the strainer tube

Features:

  • Fully automatic self-cleaning
  • Cylindrical, fixed strainer tubes
  • Homogeneous cleaning by a variety adjustable scraper blades
  • Autonomous control included heating control
  • Hardware: Siemens Simatic SPS and HMI
  • Analysis of melt pressure and temperature included in the standard delivery (incl. sensor)
  • Optional recording of process data and remote maintenance
