Functional Fluids has developed the secondary cooling system using UWT Cooling Unit as a new control method for cooling water in die casting
and injection molding (【Fig-03】).
The secondary cooling system consists of two water-circulating loops: one is the cooling tower loop (the primary cooling water) and the other is the machine cooling-water (the secondary cooling water). The former loop provides cooling water to the UWT Cooling Unit from the cooling tower and the latter enclosed loop provides water to molds, chillers, molding machines and temperature regulators. The UWT Cooling Unit has been developed in order to introduce the Secondary Cooling System easily.
All you need to introduce the Secondary Cooling System are integrated into the UWT Cooling Unit. You can convert the exiting cooling system into the secondary. With this system you can use cooling water of the same high quality anywhere in the world irrespective of the original water quality.
【Fig-05】 compares the water quality, frequency of mold trouble and mold surface temperature before and after
introducing the secondary cooling system.
The number of mold trouble has decreased and the rise in mold surface temperature is reduced dramatically after introducing the system due to deposit free cooling water circuit.
The effect of the secondary cooling system on prevention of rust or scale is also shown in 【Fig-06】.
An example of the secondary cooling system which is equipped two heat exchangers and a manifold for fine temperature control.
Cooling tower water causes rust, scale or slime deposition if it is used directly to your machines. Similar problem is liable to happen in chiller water.
