Filtration equipment maker Gneuss Inc. showed the new generation of the RSFgenius, and the new rotary model of the SFXmagnus.
Improvements to the RSFgenius include a faster purging time, so a complete color or material change can happen within three to 10 minutes. Other advances are the operator's ability to monitor melt quality and the reduction of energy consumption by 35 percent.
Gneuss developed the rotary SFXmagnus for applications that do not require an integrated screen changing.
Gneuss, of Matthews, N.C., also debuted a compact viscosimeter for on-line measurement of melt viscosity. The instrument is fitted between two flange connections. Using a metering-gear pump, a small amount of the melt is diverted from the main melt channel, through a precisely manufactured slot capillary.
