A company that services and rebuilds extruders for the plastics industry approached Tempco seeking help to convert an existing extruder from a liquid-cooled system to a more energy efficient air-cooled system with finned cast-in heaters and stainless-steel shrouds. The challenge for this conversion was that one of the heat/cool zones had an existing butane line coming out from the center of the zone at the top of the barrel. 

The customer wanted a custom shroud that could be mounted to the barrel without having to disconnect the butane line from the barrel. Visit our Blog to find out how Tempco met the requirements of this challenging application.
