Mould cleaning made easier with the power DFX

Husky Injection Molding Systems : 26 October, 2001  (New Product)
Husky
Injection moulders who find they routinely spend an excessive amount of time cleaning high cavitation systems can now improve productivity with Husky’s innovative dry ice cleaning system. Called the Power DFX, Husky’s system reduces mould downtime by as much as 80%.

The Power DFX uses low-flow technology to generate fine particles of dry ice that blast through small venturi nozzles in a stream of compressed air. When the particles hit the mould surface, they vaporize into CO2 gas, causing microscopic explosions that flush moulding residues from the steel surface. “This offers a number of advantages over manual systems, which use hazardous solvents and disposable wipes, not to mention that the manual approach is far more time-consuming,” says Bruce Catoen, Husky’s Vice President, Systems. “The Power DFX is also much quieter, easier to use, and it gets into hard-to-reach areas better than traditional dry ice cleaning systems.”

The new system, developed jointly by Husky and CAE Alpheus, can be used to clean resin residue from injection mould vents, degraded plastic material on hot runner manifolds, plastic accumulated on injection screws, and sticky residues on blow moulds. One portable Power DFX unit can serve an entire plant
