Plasti-Co Equipment Co. of Brighton, Mich., and StaMixCo LLC of Brooklyn, N.Y., have developed the TyPhoon static mixing nozzle assembly that turns the melt over 256 times during injection, ensuring a homogenous blend.
The mixing action takes place with very little back pressure.
Sizes of the nozzle assembly can handle screw diameters of 18-180 millimeters.
The TyPhoon does not impede screw recovery time and costs less than mixing screws, with a shorter lead time, the firm said. It also can be moved between machines. The unit is sold complete with heaters, thermocouples and a nozzle tip, ready for installation into the injection press.
Plasti-Co is a division of AIC Equipment & Controls Inc., a Brighton machinery sales representative firm, distributor and screw and barrel maker.
