Fast Heat (Elmhurst, IL) has introduced patent-pending Pulse waterfall technology, a hot runner control advancement that can significantly reduce the energy consumption used on hot runner systems by managing the maximum power and balancing overall demand—in some cases reducing hot runner energy consumption by 30 percent. During normal plant operation, peak power usage comes at a premium, in some cases costing the customer up to two to three times the normal rate of dollar per kilowatt-hour, which directly affects the bottom line. Hot runner controllers today, because of their inefficient method of controlling the load, will pull power as it’s needed. The company’s new technology ensures maximum efficiency because the Pulse controls this aspect of output power. It is this control over when power is applied on a system level that ensures constant efficiency. The Pulse hot runner controller is available in configurations from 6 to 186 zones and includes unique features such as active thermocouple protection, even soak, file storage and complete data reporting features.
