How is Adiabatic Extrusion Helpful in Plastic Manufacturing?

Exploring the Other Areas of Blow Molding

In plastics extrusion, energy loss is a common problem for manufacturers. But when you try the adiabatic approach, you can avoid energy loss by each component of the machine.
There is a single heat source in adiabatic extrusion blow molding. It is by the conversion of the drive energy through the viscous resistance of the plastic mass. In this system, none of the energy conferred to the polymer is lost to the surrounding environment.
Learn more about adiabatic extrusion in this article. Continue reading
