Robust Melt Filter for High-Pressure Applications The New Model CFO (Continuous Filter Operation) 25 melt filter from ADG Solu- tions, Tucker, Ga., offers more than 10% larger screen surface area and sizing that is completely imperial—replacing the existing 600-mm model. The cover includes 360° of studs, thereby properly sealing the surface and preventing any leaks. This robust design tolerates much higher pressures of up to 3500 psi. ADG's CFO line handles a broad range of materials, including PE, PP, PS, PC, and ABS. The filter can handle up to 10% paper and other foreign objects up to 0.75-in. diam. Contaminants such as metal, wood, paper, textile fibers, unmelted plastic granules, and a smaller percentage of aluminum, lead, copper, rocks and other impurities, are readily tolerated. Recent improvements in the series include a new scraper design that has been refined for smaller purges. This design improves efficiency and covers a broader range of applications. The corresponding computer controls have been updated to allow for a variable number of scrapes between purging cycles so the user can maximize contamination collection. The screen-plate filter has also been redesigned to be thicker and harder and to have more uniform hole quality. Also available is a new diamond- hard plate surface for aggressive and abrasive processes. This design offers two to three times longer screen life than the existing design. 678-292-6144 • RECYCLING Get instant access to processing specs for thousands of injection molding plastics from more than 100 suppliers with the Mobile Specs for Injection Molding app. And it's FREE!

Silopren LSR 47x9 series cures at relatively low temperatures. Unlike other medical polymers, Tritan comple- ments Silopren LSR's chemical resistance for applications that demand compatibility with powerful disinfectants and solvents. This includes such applications as respiratory devices, sealing elements, gaskets, vibration reduction, and membranes and lenses for electronic device housings. 800-295-2392 •; 800-327-8626 • @plastechmag 49 Plastics Technology N E W P R O D U C T S F O R P L A S T I C S P R O C E S S I N G
