Water-Type Mold Temperature Controllers: 

  1.  Environmental friendliness with no pollution.

  2. Low operating costs due to minimal expenditure on media. 

  3. Fast heating speed response.

Oil-Type Mold Temperature Controllers: 

  1. Better performance under high-temperature, low-pressure conditions.
  2. Offers greater temperature control range compared to water-type controllers.

Key Features of Mold Temperature Controllers: 

  1.  Pipeline explosion-proof device. 

  2. Air blowing and water return function (optional). 

  3.  Return the oil temperature prediction table. 

  4. Automatic exhaust function at startup and heating power switching function. 

  5. Negative pressure operation (optional). 

  6. Hot oil pressure relief circuit.

  7. Instant cooling boot function. 

  8. Customizable multi-point temperature control unit.

  9. Customizable oil pump horsepower and heating power. 

  10.  Electrical components from reputable brands like WEST, Schneider, and Siemens. 

  11. Adjustable temperature control range according to user requirements.

The primary function of mold temperature controllers is to regulate mold temperature, either by heating to elevate or cooling to lower it. This regulation ensures consistent quality of injection molded parts and optimizes processing time. 

In the plastics industry, mold temperature controllers exhibit specific characteristics: 

  1. Compact structure, small size, lightweight, and easy installation. 

  2. Capable of operating at higher temperatures and lower pressures. 

  3. Utilize thermal oil for heating, facilitating efficient heat transfer. 

Key equipment components include tanks, oil storage tanks, pumps, and heaters. Proper pipeline design is crucial to ensure efficient heat transfer within the mold. Thermal oil, chosen for its excellent thermal conductivity, enables energy-efficient operation with electricity savings of over 30% compared to resistance heating.

In these productions, mold temperature controllers primarily follow a rapid heating followed by a heat preservation pattern. Temperature sensors measure the hot fluid’s temperature, transmitting data to the control center to adjust accordingly. This indirect temperature control method ensures efficiency and significant energy savings compared to traditional electric heating methods. To ensure optimal performance and longevity, it’s essential to adhere to operational guidelines, including avoiding operation without oil or at temperatures exceeding the allowable limit of thermal oil. Continuous collaboration with foreign partners allows for ongoing improvements in energy efficiency and equipment quality.
