Flexible Guiding Systems for Cooling Air
Increase in Mass Throughput and Improved Mechanical Product Properties
In order to avoid bubble ruptures during the production of blown film, the velocity of the cooling air is often ‧reduced, which has a negative effect on the plant efficiency. The use of air guiding systems (AGS) can prevent such bubble instability. A novel air guidance system was developed at IKV in Aachen, Germany, using iris diaphragms in order to increase the cooling efficiency of blown film extrusion and thus improve the productivity of an existing plant.
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
