Almost all extrusion processes pass melt through wire-mesh screens on the way to the die to provide filtering and improved mixing.
Use of magnets for removing ferrous contaminants in an industrial environment began in the 1940s to help farmers trap and remove metal contaminants from their grain chutes.
