There aretwo main reasons for using a chiller for the injection mold cooling process.
1. To protectyour equipment: while the chiller represents a small cost of the processingequipment, it provides solid protection of your investment, 24 hours a day, 7days a week for years and years to come.
2. To increaseproduction: maintaining a constant and proper cooling temperature in yourprocess equipment will increase the number of parts produced per hour, and asignificant reduction in the number of defective parts.
Using achiller means:
l Less Scrap:a consistent and reliable supply of the proper temperature to the process whichmeans less scrap.
l Better HeatTransfer Rates, Less Maintenance and Downtime: because a chiller uses a closedwater loop, a better quality of water will be used, resulting in better heattransfer rates, less required maintenance and decreased downtime.
l Colder Water:a chiller can produce much colder water (or water/glycol mixture) than any ofthe other cooling alternatives, giving you certain advantages under somecircumstances.
