CL Series

Manual control and intermittent flow screenchanger

Manual control and intermittent flow The CL series screenchangers are manually operated by a control lever and require a short interruption of the working cycle, in order to replace the screens. Operation The structure of this screenchanger is very simple. The CL series has a steel body through which the melted material that needs to be filtered travels. The flow goes through a sliding plate where there are two filtering units, in which a filtering screen can be housed. The two filtering holes alternate during the work. When the filtering screen in use needs to be replaced, the person responsible simply operates the manual lever which pushes on the plate bearing the filtering units. This movement brings the dirty filter to the outside in order to make it accessible for cleaning, while at the same time the second filter is moved into its working

Automatic and Continuous screenchanger

CONTINUOUS and AUTOMATIC POWERBELT guarantees continuous production, and requires no operator assistance while running. HIGHEST PRODUCTION QUALITY POWERBELT provides perfect configuration for any different production requirement. At screen changing, pressure fade is irrelevant, with no air contact. NO MAINTENANCE POWERBELT has no motor or moving mechanical parts. It requires no maintenance interventions, except for screen roll replacement. CONTROL SYSTEM The standard control system is fully automatic and operates screen advance depending on the material contamination level. Time, pressure, dual or manual control modes are available.

Automatic screenchanger for thermoplastics Recycling

Gorilla Belt screenchanger features automatic insertion of a fresh and clean filtering screen section after any melt filtering process. Even with the most contaminated materials, Gorilla Belt screenchanger provides for several filtering cycles. Each filtering cycle takes less than 2 minutes. Highly Contaminated Materials Gorilla Belt screenchanger is specifically suitable for filtering highly contaminated thermoplastics, e.g. agricultural or building films or post consumer materials. Fully Automatic Operation Gorilla Belt screenchanger key strength lies in its fully automatic operation. Based on programmable setups, Gorilla Belt screenchanger does not require any operator intervention. Minimized Waste Material waste is reduced to minimum. Due to the special Gorilla Belt screenchanger technology and design, only dirt, impurities and plastics sticking onto the filtering screen surface are discarded. Remote Assistance Line user can rely upon a remote assistance service via Gorilla Belt screenchanger LAN connection, provided an existing Internet access. Through Remote Assistance any operation fault can be easily assessed and fixed, as well as control software quickly updated. Remote Assistance ensures utmost production efficiency and optimized intervention times, besides minimized downtimes.

AP Series

Self-cleaning and Continuous flow screenchanger

AP is SELF-CLEANING: Thanks to an exclusive Cofit patent the filter cartridges get cleaned without being taken out of the block. AP is CONTINUOUS: The filtering cartridges can be cleaned and replaced without having to interrupt production. AP is ECONOMICAL: It doesn't need an expensive control panel or an hydraulic unit. Its maintenance and spare parts are reduced to the minimum.

Company details

Cofit, 40 years of production
Cofit was started in the sixties, thanks to the enterprise of the Marianelli family. An intuition for a new market with interesting potential was at the heart of their entrepreneurial initiative. In those years the manufacturing of plastic materials on a large scale started and in 1967 Cofit was the first to understand the big advantage which could be gained from the development of the filtering process of plastic materials during production. Therefore in that year the first continuous screenchanger was produced, a patented system for the replacement of filtering screens without interrupting the production cycle. This product was exported all over the world and made the Cofit trademark a synonym par excellence for "screenchanger".

Other technologically very important patents were added to the continuous mode, for example, the valves for the orientation of the flow within the screenchanger, thanks to which the self-cleaning device was created to clean the screens without their removal.

Each year Cofit continues its research and refines its specialization in the field of filtering. Today Cofit produces screenchangers which are suitable for any requirement of production plants, in terms of dimensions, degree of filtering and level of automation.

Other types of products were, over the years, added to the production of the screenchangers, thus allowing Cofit to provide a full service to companies which manufacture plastic materials.

The eighties and the nineties represented a phase of great expansion. Thanks to the quality of the product and to technological innovation, Cofit consolidated its strong commercial presence both in Italy, and even stronger worldwide.

2005 represented a fundamental transition year in the history of Cofit. In this year the changeover in ownership of the company was completed. Alessandro Fabbri, already president of Clearchem, became director of the company. He was determined to transfer his great entrepreneurial skills to a new international launch of the company and of the Cofit trade name.
