Penn State University Evaluation

June 2014:
Pennsylvania State University – Erie conducted an evaluation of our pressurized water vs. oil and electric cartridge in controlling the mold temperature in the processing of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), a soft plastic material prevalent in medical devices.

The attached report can speak for itself but the final conclusion is that pressurized water is the most consistent method for maintaining tool temperature and reduced cycle times.

A Study Comparing Oil and Pressurized Water for Heating of out of Autoclave Tools

Oil has been used to heat Out of Autoclave tools for many years primarily as a carry over from knowledge gained in its use with other plant equipment and plant wide heating systems.

Pressurized water, having been used for some 40 years in the injection molding arena, has major advantages over oil systems but has only recently been introduced to the composite’s sector.

As a manufacturer of both oil and water systems, SINGLE Temperiertechnik GmbH, has extensive knowledge of the benefits of both systems.
