A new cooling system for extrusion blow molding incorporates chilled moist air to boost production by up to 30%. The Compressed Air Chiller (CAC) Dry Water system from Fasti GmbH in Austria targets large containers (20 liters or more) and technical parts.

A new cooling system for extrusion blow molding incorporates chilled moist air to boost production by up to 30%. The Compressed Air Chiller (CAC) Dry Water system from Fasti GmbH in Austria targets large containers (20 liters or more) and technical parts. Fasti is represented here by Comet Automation Systems, Inc., Dayton, Ohio. The new cooling system is a refi nement of Fasti's CAC unit, which operates solely on chilled compressed air. The new CAC Dry Water system uses compressed air that is 100% saturated with water vapor. This "saturated steam" is injected into the part through a nozzle at 2 to 5 C (36 to 41 F). The air/water mixture extracts heat from the plastic while leaving no moisture on the part. Cost is similar to Fasti's CAC unit-starting at $32,400. The fi rst commercial use will be for 20L to 30L jerry cans. Tel: (937) 296-9166 . www.cometauxiliary.com
