Gneuß: Innovations from three business areas

In the three years since its introduction, more than 15 units have been sold worldwide, for sheet, fibre, strapping tape and recycling applications.Furthermore, the company will for the first time show a complete line for the direct recycling of light fibre or film scrap, consisting of an MRS 110 extruder, equipped with a cutter/feeder combination together with an RSFgenius 150 and an online viscometer VIS. According to Gneuß, the new line produces a product which is comparable with virgin material, at a throughput rate of 500-700 kg/h. Filtration system RSFgenius 90 In addition, Gneuß will present its optimised Rotary melt filtration systems. With the optimisation of the back flushing (which is now completely electronically controlled) and further improvement of heating and insulation, filtration with the new generation of RSFgenius models is now even more efficient. All models for extrusion lines of medium capacity from 500-4,000 kg/h now have an active filtration area increased by up to 40 %. In many cases, this permits the use of one model size smaller at the same throughput rate and filtration performance, considerably reducing the investment cost, says the company. An SFXmagnus melt filtration system will be exhibited, which thanks to a strengthened drive system is suitable for high pressure applications.Last but not least, Gneuß will showcase two innovations in the field of measurement technology. The complete range of melt pressure transducers has been changed to the non-mercury NTX- medium as standard, which permits more reliable and accurate measurements than with mercury. The second new development is the Extrusion Pressure Monitoring System (EPM), that meets the increased European requirements on the over pressure safeguarding of extruders.
