A heat wave has enveloped most of the U.S. and processors of plastic film know how detrimental higher ambient temperatures can be to their production. Offering a helping hand are blown film air coolers. One manufacturer, Mokon, announced the extension of its blown film cooler (BFC) range to coolers sized up to 9000 cubic feet of processed air per minute.

Blown film coolers help plastic processors beat the heat

A heat wave has enveloped most of the U.S. and processors of plastic film know how detrimental higher ambient temperatures can be to their production. Offering a helping hand are blown film air coolers. One manufacturer, Mokon, announced the extension of its blown film cooler (BFC) range to coolers sized up to 9000 cubic feet of processed air per minute.

Mokon (Buffalo, NY) markets its BFC series of blown film air coolers to all processors of blown film but notes these are especially useful to processors in warmer climates or when ambient air temperatures rise during the summer. These BFCs help boost productivity by eliminating production variables in the air ring supply, including air temperature, pressure and volume.

The BFC units typically use a modulated chilled water supply to provide a constant leaving air temperature to the process. An air inlet diffuser helps the air stream cover the full face of the cooling coil.

The manufacturer's BFC series has a powder coated (inside and out) heavy-gauge steel cabinet designed for 35-inch static pressure, and noncorrosive wetted surfaces. The filter is permanent but cleanable. Dial thermometers let the user set temperatures for chilled water inlet, outlet and leaving air. Stackable designs are available.
