Cleaning is a big part of mold repair and maintenance. Clean molds simply run better.
United Tool and Mold has installed a large capacity 80" x 40" x 40" fluidized bed to quickly and completely clean mold components, hot runners, and more. A fluidized bed uses silica sand heated to over 800° Fahrenheit, 420° C, to evaporate and thoroughly remove organic coatings like plastic and paint. The heated sand bubbles within the reactor enclosure, and that motion gently scrubs the surfaces clean.
