New Compact and Small-Shot PUR Metering Machines

A series of general-purpose high-pressure polyurethane mixing/metering machines has been expanded to include three variants.

A series of general-purpose high-pressure polyurethane mixing/metering machines has been expanded to include three variants. The RIM-Star series from Krauss-Maffei Corp., Florence, Ky., now includes not only the standard RIM-Star Modular model but also the new RIM-Star Compact with a reduced footprint and RIM-Star MiniDos for very small shots. All three models have very small distances between machine components, which is said to minimize pressure losses, improve temperature control, and optimize control of the entire machine. The new designs are said to be more operator- and maintenance-friendly with much easier access to all components. While the Modular and Compact models have an output range of 4 to 90 liters/min, the smaller MiniDos puts out as little as 3 g/sec with very high precision.
