Extrusion Film Casting Case History

Featured Product from Control Instruments Corp.


A company engaged in the manufacturing of synthetic resins, plastics materials, and non vulcanizable elastomers, faced a danger of an explosion from the buildup of solvent vapors in the oven dryer atmosphere. This buildup could occur by a malfunction in the production process such as: a sudden or improper amount of coating, a change in ventilation controls or excessive speed. In any of these cases, the concentration of flammable vapor has an opportunity to rise above safe levels, creating a potentially explosive mixture of vapor in air.
