How much is your monthly electric bill? If your
business is like most molding shops, you're spending a lot on utilities in
addition to other plastic processing costs. Saving energy could really cut cost
in your shop.
IMS realizes that molders have more to worry about than molding
quality parts. Minimizing costs is crucial in business and IMS
has a selection of products to help you do just that.
Consider our Uni-Vest™ Barrel Insulation System. Our thermal insulated blankets
retain energy by directing heat back into injection barrels and other heated
equipment. By slashing your energy use, the product pays for itself in 6 - 12
months. Savings after that fast payback go straight to your bottom line.
Take a look at the KWH studies below.
You will see that an Insulation System can be extremely cost effective.
And this only includes the direct savings in machine energy usage. There will
be additional savings in air conditioning costs should you mold in an area
where this is necessary. Of course, there are several other benefits as well in
addition to a sizable energy savings...
By maintaining temperature, you'll stop barrel heat fluctuations and ensure
consistent part quality, reducing scrap and saving money
The retention of heat promotes faster machine start-ups and leads to a cooler,
more comfortable work environment by preventing heat loss
Insulation blankets aid in preventing accidental burns and/or electrical shock
On occasion, molders tell us that they are reluctant to try the insulation. They
believe that the blankets may be difficult to install or remove.
Since the blankets are installed and secured by cinch straps, installation and
removal is quick, painless and easy.
Clearly, the materials used to design the Uni-Vest™ Barrel Insulation System
were the key to its success. The cold face (outside fabric), made of PTFE
impregnated fiberglass cloth, is flexible enough to conform to intricate shapes
and is resistant to most industrial chemicals. The hot face (inside fabric) is
constructed of silica fabric and maintains insulation capabilities in steady
state temperatures up to 2000° F. And the insulation? Non-asbestos ceramic
fiber that will withstand extreme heat for long periods of time without
breaking down. These Uni-Vest™ Modules were made to last; in fact, they resist
material degradation better than any other blanket on the market.
