ApplicationsCure Plastic Extrusion


A manufacturer of medical plastics curing a continuous strand of plastic extrusion.

  • Uneven Heat - Existing heating method did not provide even heat.
  • Wasted Time - The existing heat source took long periods of time to heat up and cool down.
  • Excessive Scrapped Product - The limitations of the existing heating method resulted in an unacceptable amount of scrapped product.
  • Heat - A Model E4-10 Radiant Heating Chamber applied even heating to the plastic extrusion.
  • Instant On/Off - The Radiant Heating Chamber heated up and cooled down instantly.
  • Power Control - A Model 664F Phase Angle SCR Power Controller controlled the Radiant Heating Chamber.
  • System Integration - A tachometer feedback switch installed as part of the system cut off power to the Radiant Heating Chamber if the line shut down.
  • Improved Quality - The Model E4-10 Radiant Heating Chamber provided the precise amount of even heating required to produce quality plastic extrusion.
  • Saved Time - No time was lost waiting for the Radiant Heating Chamber to heat up or cool down.
  • Reduced Scrap - Product scrap was significantly reduced as a result of the instant on/off capabilities of the Radiant Heating Chamber combined with the tachometer feedback switch.
