Extruder Barrel Insulation Blankets
Services for Plastics, Inc.
Offers a line of Extruder Barrel Insulating Blankets designed to contain the heat generated
WHY USE EXTRUDER BARREL INSULATION BLANKETS
Independent studies have shown that insulation provides the single greatest “payback” with the least amount of capital investment. Typical time to recoup insulation cost is three to six months based on the following figures: operating machines 24 hours per day, 5 days per week paying $0.05 per KWH. If you run a continuous operation or pay more for your energy, the payback period is even less.
CONSIDER THESE REASONS:
MEASUREMENTS MADE EASY
Simply measure the outside diameter or circumference of the heater bands and the distance between thermocouples (this is critical). You can utilize a series of insulators to insulate the desired width, for instance, use two 4” insulators to cover an 8” width.
WANT PROOF ?
Contact us at Services for Plastics, Inc., we will provide savings information for various machines, if not yours specifically, at least enough information will be provided for you to see the value of using barrel insulation blankets to convince you to make the right choice.
OUR VARIABLE LINE OF BLANKETS
Our product line consists of both custom designed and off-the-shelf insulating blankets made of modern high temperature materials, including Kevlar, Ceramics, Teflon, Silica and conventional fiberglass. Many applications such as injection molding and extruder barrels can be insulated with stock interlocking wraps of varying length which when linked together provide insulation for length and most diameters.
WHERE TO USE BARREL INSULATION BLANKETS
Insulation systems have become critical to the processing capabilities and efficiencies of all plastic and rubber processors.
We provide systems in a variety of configurations to accommodate your needs. From customized blankets for sheet dies, blown film dies and thermoset molds to insulation boards for low and high compression applications. Each system allows for maximum efficiency and control of tool/mold temperature, faster start-up times and reduced strain on plant cooling systems. Barrel insulation can be customized to a specific barrel or generalized to adopt to a variety of barrel sizes and configurations, and are designed with convenience in mind with access for all adjustment areas and quick connect hardware for easy removal and replacement.
SAFEGUARDS FOR PERSONNEL PROTECTION
Protective shields, protective barriers, or insulating materials shall be used to protect each employee from shock, burns or other electrically related injuries. While that employee is working near exposed energized parts, which might be accidentally contacted or where dangerous electric heating or arcing might occur, it is necessary to provide protection. When normally enclosed live parts are exposed for the maintenance or repair, they shall be guarded to protect unqualified persons from contact with the live parts.
