Screen changers enhance the quality of the melt by trapping contaminants and solids particularly when using repro resins.  
Manual or hydraulically operated screen changers can be incorporated into the extrusion line to provide a cost-effective solution to maintain quality.
Alpha Marathon’s screen changers are machined from high grade tool steel which are thermally treated and rectified in their sliding parts.
