Temperature Control Mold-Masters introduces manifold leak detection technology
The Advanced Plastic Leak Detection capabilities found on Mold-Masters’ Temp Master hot runner temperature controllers has undergone a significant enhancement. The company is the first in the industry to utilise Thermal Analysis to detect plastic leakage within the manifold pocket.
The innovative Manifold Leak Detection feature on Mold-Masters’ Temp Master hot runner temperature controllers has been designed to save moulders a considerable amount of repair costs and downtime.
To enable this feature, thermocouples are installed on the manifold in various locations which are dedicated to monitoring and detecting manifold leakage. The size of the manifold will dictate how many detection thermocouples are necessary and the position of each thermocouple will determine how quickly the leakage is detected. During internal testing of this feature, leakages were detected quickly and reliably before any damage had occurred.
Manifold Leakage Detection is an optional feature that is available now with all Mold-Masters Temp Master M2+ and M3 hot runner temperature controllers. The original Plastic Leak Detection feature that quickly detects plastic leakage within the nozzle pocket is included with all M2+ and M3 controllers as standard.
