Mass-Vac Inc. recently unveiled its vacuum pump inlet trap for plastics extruders that combines a knockdown stage with multiple stainless steel gauze filters to protect vacuum pumps from volatiles.
The MV Multi-Trap® Vacuum Inlet Trap protects extruder vent lines and vacuum pumps from the volatile materials and process byproducts resulting from plastics extrusion which can cause premature pump failure. Featuring a full knockdown first stage baffle and a second stage of stainless steel gauze filters, this trap provides more effective trapping than knockout pots.
- Suitable for all plastics extruders including polystyrene, PET, PP, PE, PS, and PVC
- Made from 304 stainless steel for pump capacities to 2000 CFM
- Offered with 1.5” to 6.0” port sizes
- Options include drains and float switches for the automatic disposal of volatile compounds where necessary, and other filter types for vapors
