BF-Plate Type Screen Changer for Extrusion

In Extrusion applications, production efficiency and perfect product quality can only be provided correctly equipped extruders. In extrusion applications, foreign parts which comes with the raw material or other external ways disrupt the production and effect the final product’s quality. Besides they can make serious faults on equipment. For this reason, besides the separation of the solid material at the extruder inlet, the filtration in the melt phase at the extruder outlet is very important.


§  Simple and safe filtering operation

§  Optimized flow channels for high and low viscosity melts.

§  The dynamic expansion system has excellent sealing.

§  High quality materials and finish

§  Maximum safety with covers.

§  Optional temperature and pressure sensors and interconnection Adaptors.

Product category: Barrels


Former produces almost all types of barrels used in injection molding or extrusion processes. While the injection barrels must be resistant to high injection pressure, extrusion barrels may require the use of degassing type barrels to take volatiles out and the use of grooved feeding systems for difficult-to-feed materials. Our designs meet these requirements and correct material selection and the proper hardening, coating technics will provide optimum lifetime efficiency.

Grooved Feed Barrels

Feeding grooves are used in most of today's extrusion applications. With the use of “Soft” or “Hard” feeding grooves, benefits such as higher throughput, stable and higher mold pressure generation and more efficient feeding of high viscosity materials are obtained. FORMER produces grooved feeding barrels with various channel profiles and in straight and spiral forms.

Product category: Barrels


If the lifetime of the barrel is not long enough because of abrasive or corrosive additives or fillers, the right solution is Bimetalic barrel. Thanks to special centrifugal casting technique for application of highly abrasion and corrosion proof alloys on the wear surfaces of the barrel. These alloys allows to run the barrel long time without changing it even with up to 50 % glass fiber including materials. Former will offer you proper base material for extrusion or injection molding with the suitable coating alloy for the efficient lifetime.

CFL- Extra Large Filtering Area, Continuous Filter

CFL- Series Filters having extra-large filtering area provides very long run without changing the screen mesh. Comparing the CF series or similar filters with flat screens, it has 4 times larger filtering area with a similar compact body. Due to its proven double Piston type design, it doesn’t need any additional sealing, runs without leakage and reduces pressure loss by optimized flow channels and enlarged screen area.
