HEYCO WERK s.r.o - Czech Republic
Improve the performance of mold cooling thanks to the use of Frigel Turbogel booster units.
Heyco is a leader in the production of plastic components for the automotive sector and has become a Frigel customer following the need to improve the performance of mold cooling, especially for parts of car´s water management in PP/TPE where deformation problems were encountered with long cooling times and therefore low productivity. This was possible thanks to the use of our Turbogel booster units with high flow rate of cooling water which guarantees optimal cooling of all the channels of the mold. Our Turbogels are able to communicate with the customer's press via serial interface.
Following the success achieved with the Turbogels, the customer asked Frigel to design the new centralized cooling system using a 3DK adiabatic cooler, to be installed in the recently built production hall, with 5 presses running for 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. The goal was to reduce operating costs compared to the current system consisting of a centralized air-cooled chiller and also to have a cooling system that did not require the use of glycol. In addition to the adiabatic cooler, Microgels was used for cooling the colder molds and Turbogel for the warmer molds.
A modular cooling system has been designed which involves the installation of a self-draining adiabatic cooler on the roof, at a height of 12m, and hydronic units (pumps and tanks) in the production department with minimum footprint. The system is designed to allow easy expansion thanks to modularity. The adiabatic cooling system feeds the oil cooling circuit of the presses, our thermoregulators with booster pumps of the Turbogel series for cooling the hottest molds and our compact chillers with water-cooled booster pumps of the Microgel series for the molds cold.
