Polymer Cleaning Technology introduces brass nozzle heaters for hot runners

Polymer Cleaning Technology Inc. (PCT; Hillsborough, NJ), an independent provider of parts, repairs and services for all brands of hot runner systems, has introduced its new line of brass nozzle heaters for hot runner systems.

The new Imperium heaters are available as direct replacements for all standard OEM nozzle heaters. They can also be customized for non-standard systems and applications. Imperium heaters are constructed of solid brass. The heater cable is mechanically deformed into the heater grooves; along with the use of a tight-fitting, stainless-steel over sleeve, the design reportedly guarantees the elimination of hot spots.

The design offers not only dramatically longer heater life but increased temperature uniformity across the face of the mold. Thermocouples can be integrated into the heater or mounted externally.

“These design features make Imperium heaters the ideal choice for molders involved in demanding applications where long heater life and high temperature uniformity are critical,” said Bob Duffy, President of PCT.

PCT is marketing Imperium heaters to both end user molders and OEMs. PCT maintains large hot runner refurbishment centers in New Jersey and Chicago and provides services from simple melt channel cleaning to a full refurbishment of a hot half, from preventive maintenance to emergency repairs.
