As the auxiliary machine, the plastic chiller plays an important part during the plastic process and manufacturing.

In the plastics industry, the water chilling system from the plastic chiller cools the hot plastic material from the mold that is injected, blown, extruded, or stamped.

A chilling system from a plastic chiller can also cool down your plastic equipment that is used to create plastic products (hydraulics of the molding machine, gearbox, and barrel of the extruder).

You will benefit a lot by using a plastic chiller for your plastic process:

1. The plastic chiller will eliminate melting lines, melting marks, and silver lines on the plastic product surface;

2. The cooling water from plastic chiller will thoroughly solve the phenomenon of surface shrinkage of your plastic products;

3. Plastic chiller will improve the surface cleanness of your plastic product so that your finished plastic product can reach the smooth surface;

4. Using a plastic chiller, your plastic product does not need to be spray-painted for subsequent processing, which improves the yield of the phenomenon by 20-30%;

The plastic chiller can cool the molding mold, improve the smoothness of the plastic products, reduce the surface marks and internal stress of the plastic products, make the plastic products not shrink or deform, facilitate the smooth demoulding of the plastic products.

The plastic chiller can also accelerate the finalization of the products, thus greatly improving the production efficiency of the plastic molding machine.

Plastic machinery needs to be equipped with chillers: injection molding machine, bottle blowing machine, extrusion machine, thermoplastics machine, and other oil pressure system machinery.

1. The application of the plastic chiller in the injection molding machine, after the plastic particles are heated and melted, they are injected into the abrasives. After they are condensed, the mold is opened to eject the molded plastic product. In the process of contact production, the mold needs to be cooled to shorten the plastic setting time and provide the dimensional accuracy and molding quality of the product.

2. The plastic chiller is used for bottle blowing machine, which mainly produces various mineral water bottles and beverage bottles. A blowing bottle requires clean and dry compressed air. Using the chilled water provided by the plastic chiller as the cold source, the water in the compressed air can be removed.

3. The extruder is mainly used for extruding and forming pipes, trunking, cables, and various plastic profiles. After the heating and melting, raw materials are molded by the mold and cooled by the water pool, the water temperature in the water pool must be kept constant, which needs the function of the plastic chiller. Because there is already a water pool, the plastic chiller does not need to be equipped with a water tank.

4. The thermoplastics machine mainly produces small containers, such as a yogurt cup, fast food box, etc. It is very important to keep a constant temperature when the plastic is extruded in a mold heated at a constant frequency, which requires a very high stable production range of chilled water. Therefore, plastic chillers must provide chilled water to accurately control the temperature.

What is the Importance of Plastic Chiller for Plastic Manufacturing Machines?

A plastic product cannot be made manufactured without using a suitable Plastic Chiller in the process. The plastic machines manufacture the product by shaping a molten polymer material by using a mold.

This shaping process is completed by rapid cooling of the product at the end that covers this semi-liquid product into a finished solid one.

The Plastic Chiller performs this job and completes the process of plastic machine. It is not only necessary for the product but also for the machine itself.

It keeps the machines at normal temperature and saves from the effect of high temperature. This keeps the machines healthy and maintained.

What are the Applications of a Plastic Chiller?

The plastic industry cannot perform with it. It has applications in all the processes of plastic manufacturing like molding, extrusion, sheet making, injection molding, etc.

These are some of the most major applications of a Plastic Chiller.

  • Plastic Industries.
  • Injection Molding.
  • Polymerization Process.
  • Metal Industries.
  • Extrusion Processes.
  • Vacuum-Forming Process for Plastic Products.
  • Rotational Molding.

How to Control your Plastic Chiller?

Controlling it is not merely operating it for the process. A total control includes all the necessary factors given below to be considered in detail.

  1. Keep your Plastic Chiller healthy and maintained on daily basis. Inspect the parts, daily records, and good care are part of the control.
  2. Train your personals before allowing them to work on it. An unskilled person can cause any kind of mistake and jeopardize the whole production cycle.
  3. All the parameters programmed should be well-versed and correct. It makes the control of Plastic Chiller better.

What is the Importance of Plastic Chiller in Polymerization Process?

Polymerization is the most basic process of forming plastic. In this monomers are chemically treated and added with each other to make a polymer that is plastic.

This plastic is then melted and shaped into the products. The polymerization process is partially dependent upon condensation. This condensation is achieved by the Plastic Chiller.

It not only performs condensation but also carries out this process efficiently and a successful polymer is achieved.

What do Functions Plastic Chiller Play in the Extrusion Process of the Plastic Industry?

Extrusion is a type of plastic product manufacturing method in which semi-liquid raw plastic is passed through a mold. This process is done with force.

During the whole extrusion process the temperature control of the plastic and mold both are important. A Plastic Chiller controls the temperature of semi-liquid plastic as well as mold.

The plastic is required to cool down as soon as it passes through the mold, and that is facilitated by it. In extrusion, a mostly portable type of Plastic Chiller is used.

Extrusion Process of the Plastic Industry

Extrusion process of the plastic industry

What Type of Coolant is Used in a Plastic Chiller?

Only two types of coolants are used in it. the water in the Water-Cooled type and air in the Air-Cooled type.

The mechanism of action may be changed with a different type of Plastic Chiller but the coolants remain the same.

Water is preferred in injection molding, extrusion, etc. Air is preferred in blow molding and thermoforming processes.

What does Functions Plastic Chiller play in the Injection Molding Process?

The importance and function of it in the injection molding process can be estimated from the fact that 85-95% of the production time is occupied by the chilling that is done by the Plastic Chiller.

It helps in not only temperature control but also keeps the machine cooled. In injection molding, the shape, design, and dimensions of the product are very necessary.

These elements cannot be finished perfectly without using them. For this purpose, Water-Cooled Plastic Chiller is preferred over other types.

What Type of Factors should be Considered while Selecting a Plastic Chiller for your Injection Molding Machine?

  1. For injection molding, the portable type is more efficient and easy. Select the one with the most advanced features as a portable Plastic Chiller.
  2. The second factor is the cooling load. Calculate it before selecting any kind of Plastic Chiller.
  3. The selection of coolant is very important for injection molding. For injection, molding waterworks more efficiently than air. But, for the small-scale machine, Air-Cooled Plastic Chiller can be used efficiently.

What is Portable Plastic Chiller and Why it is Preferred in Vacuum-Forming Process of Plastic Industry?

A Portable Plastic Chiller is a type of small-scale chiller that is used for specific applications in plastic applications. It is lightweight and highly efficient with a capacity of tons.

The flat and sheet type of products are made by the Vacuum-forming process. In this process, the molten sheet of plastic helps over a stainless steel mold and a vacuum is applied.

This vacuum forces the sheet to acquire the shape of the mold. In this, all process cooling and temperature control is random and required at many stages.

Almost every vacuum-forming process prefers the applications of a portable Plastic Chiller for their process. It’s not only used for temperature but also used several other useful functions in the vacuum-forming process.

For chilling of mold, for instant chilling of the sheet after shaping, and more. For this purpose, a Portable Plastic Chiller is highly suitable than a stationary one.

How to Select a Suitable Plastic Chiller for your Industry?

Every chiller should be selected based on Durability, Efficiency, and Quality. Following are some additional technical specifications that should be kept in mind while selecting a Plastic Chiller for your industry.

  1. You should select the Plastic Chiller based on the production rate of load that is needed for your industry. It is usually calculated in terms of pound per hour a material needed to be produced.
  2. Consider cooling capacity and the temperature range it can handle.
  3. Refrigerant flow rate and speed it has.
  4. The refrigerant tank capacity.

How a Plastic Chiller Plays Important Role in the Rotational Molding Process of Plastic?

Rotational molding uses centrifugal force to shape the plastic product. A liquid plastic is filled in a chamber and spanned at high rpm.

The centrifugal force makes molten plastic to fill the mold made on the chamber wall. As this complex process requires accurate temperature control, a Plastic Chiller is used in it.

It provides constant temperature control before the molding process and during the process. it keeps the chamber cool during the process and instantly cooled products after the process is completed.

A rotational molding process cannot reach its completion without the proper use of a Plastic Chiller.

What is the Cost of a Plastic Chiller?

The total cost varies with different ranges of capacities, cooling load, design, and coolant type.

A Water-Cooled Plastic Chiller with a capacity of around 20000 Kcal/hour costs in the range of 23000 USD to 25000 USD.

On the other hand, a small-scale 2.2KW Plastic Chiller can be as cheaper as 800 USD. The average range of Plastic Chiller costs is from 800 USD to 30000 USD depending upon its specifications.

How to Install your Plastic Chiller?

The installation guidelines for it are almost the same as for every other type of chiller. Some of the guidelines additional for a Plastic Chiller are given below.

  1. Prepare the ground and make it vibration-free before installation. Choose the area and prepare it for the installations.
  2. The installation area should contain a low amount of moisture and dust.
  3. Installation should be done with the help of a technician or expert.
