Filter Test ME FT

The Measuring Extruder Filter Test determines the filter pressure value (FPV), which is the increase of pressure before the screen filter measured by time, as indication of the melt purity to optimize the colour approach and general quality control of polymer.

The extruder melts and homogenizes the test material which is then delivered to the filter via a melt pump with a defined and constant volume flow. With this constant volume flow in front of the screen, the pressure increases and is recorded by a sensor.
