Tailor-made for blown film lines, the SFXmagnus from Gneuss, Matthews, N.C. is said to offer a large filtration area, which allows blown film processors to incorporate more reclaim in their product. Gneuss says a processor of three-layer PE trash-bag film retrofitted an extrusion line with an SFXmagnus and was able to increase the percentage of recycled material from 25% to 45%. Another blown film manufacturer, with a monolayer line for packaging film, was able to use up to 100% recycled material, according to the supplier. The SFXmagnus is based on Gneuss rotary disk technology, which permits continuous operation even during a screen change.
