THE LARGEST FILTERING SURFACE WITH JUST TWO SCREENS AND TWO VALVES.
The amount of material to be recycled is constantly increasing, but at the same time, it is necessary to maintain the high quality standards of the results. This is why we have designed a truly exclusive melt filter combining FIMIC technology with the experience that has made us filtration specialists, with the guarantee of never failing to obtain an excellent end product.
Because we like thinking big!
GEM combines the power of RAS, FIMIC’s superior filter, with the winning idea of the ERA double filter. The result is an exclusive technology which combines two identical Ø 600 or Ø 700 screens, two scrapers and two valves, achieving a surface area of 5.552 cm² and 7.592 cm²: the largest in the world on a single machine!
We have never been daunted by challenges and GEM stemmed precisely from the most exciting and difficult challenge of all: to allow a greater hourly production rate thanks to a bigger filtration surface than any other melt filter on the market. And all with just two screens! Without ever losing sight of the processing of any level of material contamination, with reduced waste and low maintenance costs.
DUAL FILTRATION CHAMBER
GEM has two independent filtration chambers which allow you to double your hourly production rate compared to classic melt filters
LASER-DRILLED OR PUNCHED SCREENS
Laser screen: possible filtration 80 / 100 / 120 / 150 / 200 / 250 or 300 micron
Punched screen: possible filtration 400 / 500 / 600 / 800 / 1000 / 1500 / 2000 micron
DOUBLE DISCHARGE VALVE
The contamination outlet valve is also doubled in GEM.
HOW DOES GEM WORK?
Unlike RAS, this model achieves a greater surface area through two screens towards which the plastic material flows, in combination with two scrapers and two independent discharge valves.
The two blades scrape the contamination collected on the screen, while the scrapers trap them inside and then, automatically discharge what they have collected via the valves. The pressure mode is set on the touch screen, while the scrapers rotate at an adjustable speed, collecting the contamination inside them and the valves open only when the cycle is complete. In case of large amounts of contamination, the continuous system can be selected and the scraper will continue to slowly scrape the screen. Thanks to the timer, the valves will then be opened, only discharging when necessary.

THE ONLY ONE
There is nothing else like GEM, the “twin” filter which works twice as hard and offers an unparalleled filtering surface, guaranteeing a superior result compared to any other product on the market.
The filtering surface is even bigger than RAS, but with just two screens! This is why the hourly production rate increases with GEM, achieving a filtering surface higher than a RAS700.
Despite being the largest filter on the market, GEM ensures very low spare part costs while the use of just two screens means a lower initial investment.
To guarantee an excellent end result, GEM can be adapted to any requirement, based on the type of plastic material to be filtered, the hourly production rate, filtration level and type of contamination.
