Cooler water dosing
for different types of cooler systems
Moulding material management can involve the targeted addition of water as early as the cooler stage. Using a combination of two moisture measuring points (before the cooler and in the cooler) and a temperature measurement point in the cooler exhaust, an initial dose of water can be measured in.
In the cooling process, fluid-bed coolers work according to the same principle as evaporative cooling. Depending on the sifting structure and the various water inlets, the water dosing needs to be adapted.
Shake-out drums are sensitive to the excessive addition of water. Nevertheless, to restrict temperature peaks water should be added in the appropriate doses.
