Critical Cooling Processes within Plastic Moulding Industry
The cooling process within plastic injection moulding is very critical to the quality of the mould, and takes approximately 50-75% of the total cycle time. Therefore, it is critical to maintain a clean, efficient cooling channel capable
of removing heat at the required rates. Any deviation to that would result in an inconsistent mould quality from cycle to cycle.
When mineral deposits from the cooling water drop out and attach to the cooling channel walls of your moulds or heat exchanger
tubes of your hydraulic oil coolers, a thermal barrier is created which significantly reduces heat transfer. The resulting
uneven temperature of the mould surface (uneven shrinkage) results in parts with moulded-in stresses, warped/twisted
sections, sink marks, poor surface appearance and varying part dimensions from cycle to cycle.
Plastic Industry Applications
• Channels in Moulds
• Heater Bands on Injector Throttle Bodies
• Hydraulic Oil Coolers
• Heat Exchangers
• Water Cooled Chillers
• Water Cooling Towers
• Water Cooled Air Compressors
• Temperature Controllers
Cycle time down? - Inconsistent moulding?
Have you checked your cooling channels?
Many moulds are running at very poor cooling efficiency without you even knowing it.
Over months and years layers of limescale, rust or other debris slowly reduce the bore size of your cooling
channels, which can have a dramatic effect on the overall performance of each mould.
ScaleAway descalers are revolutionary products designed to dissolve the toughest water scale, lime, mud, and
rust deposits from virtually any piece of water-based equipment.
ScaleAway descaling solutions can be utilized to clean an isolated piece of equipment using a ScaleAway System Descaling Cart
ScaleAway descaling solutions gets rid of limescale . . . These scientific solutions chemically dissolves all
water scale, lime and rust deposits as found in any type of water heated, cooled or operated equipment, without
dismantling the equipment. ScaleAway's descaling products restore original operating efficiency to your processing
equipment when loss of efficiency is due to water scale, lime or rust deposits. Simply use ScaleAwaySFA
on scaled equipment according to detailed, step by step instructions that are available upon request.
The descaling product of choice is ScaleAwaySFA which is very fast acting, and most of your applications can be
cleaned in a matter of hours.
ScaleAwaySFA will dissolve about 1/2 kilogram (500g) of water limescale per five kilograms (5kg) of ScaleAwaySFA.
Only ScaleAway descaling solutions fortified with corrosion inhibitors, surfactants and defoamers, does it so simply, rapidly, safely and economically.
Temperature Control Unit Heat Exchangers
Support equipment, such as chillers, exchangers, temperature controllers and cooling towers are a vital part of your
operation and can only afford you efficient operation when kept clean of water scale, lime and rust deposits.
Call today and speak to one of our experienced technicians for more detailed instructions on in-house descaling when using
the ScaleAway System Descaling Cart or ScaleAway’s Scheduled Preventative Maintenance Plan for your water operated equipment.
Any type of water cooled heat transfer equipment can usually be cleaned with ScaleAway's descaling products. Hydraulic oil
coolers that become fouled with water scale, lime and rust deposits will eventually cause a shutdown and replacement of expensive
Periodic cleaning of your hydraulic oil coolers and other heat transfer equipment will keep them operating efficiently.
ScaleAway's descaling products are our solution to your problems.
