RECYCLING PLASTIC MATERIALS IS NO LONGER THE SAME WITH RAS!
RAS is the FIMIC melt filter that can manage any contamination level, guaranteeing a reduced quantity of waste and low maintenance costs.
RAS can be adapted to your specific requirements, like the type of plastic material to be filtered, hourly production rate, filtration level and type of contamination.
RAS is the filter that made FIMIC known around the world, our flagship product, and we are especially proud of it since it represents an important achievement for our company. Today, we have surpassed 370 RAS filter units installed on all the continents, from South America to New Zealand. A milestone that bears witness to FIMIC’s extensive experience in manufacturing filters for over twenty years, and the quality of an all-Italian product that has taken Made in Italy to an international level.
BREAKER 45 MM
The main support for melt pressure and filter support.
SPECIAL BREAKER 8MM
To increase the filtration area for fine filtration.
LASER-DRILLED OR PUNCHED SCREEN
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
The heart of the FIMIC melt filter!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Two blades scrape the contamination collected by the filter, while the scraper traps it inside it and then, automatically discharges what it has collected via the front valve.
- It is possible to decide the pressure mode by setting it on the touchscreen. When this has been reached, the scraper, rotating at an adjustable speed, collects the contamination inside it, opening the front valve only when the cycle is complete.
- In case of large amounts of contamination, the continuous mode can be selected, and the scraper will continue to slowly scrape the screen.

RAS covers all the possible applications: blown film, injection, injection moulding.
All the possible filtrations are available thanks to the punched and laser screens. A punched screen can normally last from 3 days to a maximum of 7 while a laser one can last from normally one week to a maximum of 12 days, with the possibility of reusing it after being cleaned in the pyrolytic oven up to four times, thus cutting costs.
RAS is undoubtedly the strongest on the market! The non-auger valve allows you to process any type of contamination, even the most aggressive, such as iron and sand, without damaging blades and screen.
The size of RAS’s filtering surface is in a league of its own. This characteristic prevents it from degrading the processed material, which is able to flow unhindered. This is why the hourly production rate increases with RAS!
THE FILTRATION SPECIALISTS
Our melt filters adapt to any system, whether new or existing.
We study the most suitable model to meet any filtration requirement, based on the level of contamination, type of plastic material to be processed and the hourly throughput target.
