High-temperature water units up to 230 °C

High-temperature water units up to 230 °C

The reliable and internationally well known Thermo-5 temperature control unit portfolio of HB-Therm is upgraded with two other types. HB-Therm thus complies with many customer requests for high-temperature units with water as temperature control medium. There is a clear market trend of going to higher temperatures. Many applications are being developed requiring the use of these types of high-temperature water units.

Although the high temperature for water up to 200 °C or 230 °C is new, the proven technology remains the same: i.e. including controlled superimposed system pressure, proportionally controlled cooler bypass and ultrasonic flow meter.

With the addition of the HB-200Z2B and the HB-230Z2B to the temperature control unit portfolio plastic manufacturer get the opportunity as of October 2017 to benefit from this technology into the highest temperature range. Do note that raised requirements are placed on the stability of moulds and fixtures due to the high temperatures for water and the resulting pressures. The required pressure resistance for 200 °C is 31bar and for 230 °C is 47 bar.
