Hasco America’s new, low-leakage temperature control system offers user maximum safety during uncoupling, and improved tightness and durability.
Featuring flat end sealing surfaces, the system shuts off on both sides to enable low-leakage and a clean open and close under pressure. One-handed quick-release couplings showcase a long and precise guidance for the sealing nipple. This guarantees safe and independent coupling with a maximum flow rate and a small, low-pressure drop. Made of 2.0401 (brass) and 1.4305 (stainless steel), the quick-release couplings are also made robust against vibrations and movements. The stainless-steel versions are ideal for use in medical and cleanroom technology applications.
The couplings are also said to be suitable for high-temperature applications as a function of the cooling medium, ensuring a reliable and long-lasting production process.
Simple cylinder calculations provide good first look comparisons for proper sizing when moldmakers are considering the most suitable side-action option early in the mold design.
When insulation is necessary to build a mold, the moldmaker must consider the insulation's properties and what effects these properties will have on mold performance.
Selecting the right material for specific mold components can help prevent a number of costly issues
