Gneuss offers a wide range of services to ensure permanent production consistency and product quality in the manufacture and processing of plastics.
Rotary Filtration Systems
The patented Gneuss Rotary Filtration Systems enable fully automatic, process and pressure constant filtration. The main characteristic of these filtration systems is the rotary disk with its ring of screen cavities, located between two solid steel blocks.
MRS Extrusion Technology
Gneuss MRS Multi Rotation System offers new possibilities in the venting or devolatilization of polymer melts. It allows, for example, the processing of PET without pre-drying. Alternately, this technology can be used to introduce gases (for foamed products) or fillers / additives homogenously into the melt.
Process and Control Technology
The use of patented measurement and control technology allows Gneuss to simplify extrusion processes while at the same time increasing their reliability.
Gneuss’ Online Viscometer VIS allows the permanent proven real time monitoring of polymer viscosity. Its rugged design and measurement accuracy are well proven. The viscosity measurement takes place without material losses. The design permits easy cleaning, without influencing the process.
The standard vacuum systems operate with a simple and robust water ring pump with a standard vacuum level of down to 25 mbar. Systems for vacuum levels down to 1 mbar can be supplied. The gas and particle separation is simple and environmentally friendly.
Sensors and Accessories
Gneuss Melt Pressure and Temperature Sensors are characterized by their extremely high precision, combined with a high degree of robustness. Consistent application of latest technology ensures permanent quality control during the production process.
