Principle of Operation
Quickly detects plastic leaks, reducing damage to tools and/or equipment. Fine Sensor Tubes carrying tiny volumes of air are fitted close to the nozzle tip and/or inside the mould to potential leak sites. When a leak begins, the restriction in airflow is quickly detected by sensitive pressure sensors. The system offers a range of programmable interlock options allowing for instant or delayed injection cycle stop and/or audible and visual alarm only.
