    Injection Moulding Cooling Hire for a Major Plastics Producer- A Customer Success Story

    The Challenge;

    To provide plastic injection moulding cooling hire for Polypipe.

    As one of our oldest customers, Polypipe turned to us for a solution to a critical situation.

    Polypipe were experiencing problems with one of their fixed chillers. The chillers perform the important role of cooling products as they leave the extruders and moulders. Crucially, his helps cure the product which without cooling looses its shape and is waste.

    Significantly, a fast turn-around was required as production was being lost.

    The problem chiller on site was rated at 300kw.

    The Solution;

    We recommended that a 350kw chiller was fitted to replace the on-site chillers 300kw duty.

    In view of the fast turn around required, the chiller, cable and hosing was dispatched the same day. Our engineers were in attendance on arrival to install in double quick time.

    The chiller was mounted at ground level next to the plant room and flexible 3″ hose used to connect into the customers water system. Handily, access points were available for this, something we would highly recommend that any customer with a critical system has available.

    Power was fed from a nearby distribution board with capacity available. The use of single core H07 RNF cable  ensured fast installation.

    The system was filled from the customers open vented tank and the chiller put into operation and tested.

    Summary;

    This system was installed in one day demonstrating that a close customer/ contractor relationship has massive benefits. Notably, that we were familiar with the site and could specify and send the correct equipment without delay.

    The system remained in position for 3 months whilst the sites chiller was replaced.
