A Different Kind of Film Star:
the Gneuss RSFgenius
Retrofitting its melt filter enables the German PE packaging film manufacturer Oldenburg to process its production waste
These blown film extruders are equipped with discontinuous screen changers. When using the repelletised material which has been pre-filtered using the Gneuss RSFgenius, the intervals between changing screens on the discontinuous screen changers on the blown film lines is practically the same as when processing virgin material and the quality of the repelletised material is such that it can be used up to 100 % in place of virgin material.
Thanks to the extremely efficient, unique self-cleaning system of the RSFgenius 175 on the central recycling line, the filter elements on the do not need frequent replacement and the quantity of material lost through back-flushing is kept to an absolute minimum. The company director, Mr. Michael Oldenburg confirmed that the Gneuss Melt Filtration System met or exceeded all the performance characteristics which were promised in advance and that in spite of the tight space requirements on the existing recycling line, Gneuss were able to tailor make the installation so that it was possible to install it without needing to move the positions of the existing equipment.
