Plunger Rod Product Specifications:
To maintain consistent thermal and thus dimensional control of the plunger tip, it is necessary to closely manage the flow of cooling water through the plunger during the casting cycle. Dimensional problems can often be resolved by simply increasing the flow of water. An adequate flow of coolant through the shot rod is essential. The rate of flow of cooling water is easily measured, and should be monitored frequently. Rate of flow is much more critical than the temperature of the cooling water.
The capacity of the Castool rod is sufficient for an ample flow of cooling water. The lines or connections into or out of the rod do not reduce the flow.
