Posi-Shut™ Automatic Shut-Off Valve
Proven Design Offers Precise Shutoff, High Flow, And The Lowest Pressure Drop!
GET BETTER MELT DELIVERY
The objective of Md Plastics Posi-Shut™ Automatic Shut-Off Valve is to empower the processor with advanced control of the valve shut off mechanism during molding. This is accomplished by eliminating a need for decompression and facilitating valve shut off at melt recovery independent of the screw’s movement forward. In a perfect molding scenario, the non-return valve closes quickly, completely at the same time for each shot. Without restriction and sacrifice of flow and self cleaning characteristics. This action ensures a repeatable process consistent from shot to shot. The benefit is lower reject rate, higher part quality, maximum yield rate and increased profit margin.
WHY YOU NEED THE
POSI-SHUT ™ AUTOMATIC SHUT-OFF VALVE
The Posi-Shut™ Automatic Shut-Off Valve is a mechanically operated poppet valve that is independent of screw movement to facilitate closure. The valve’s standard construction is of wear resistant heat treated H13 tool steel and there are metallurgical and surface treatment options for extreme abrasion and corrosion wear environments.
The Posi-Shut™ Automatic Shut-Off Valve utilizes the patented Md Plastics Mini-Shut™ technology with a replaceable shutoff cartridge patent number #8734146. The valve closure is expedited by the kinetic energy created by the Belleville springs to achieve instantaneous and precise closure at the sealing surface with each shot. Upon screw recovery, valve closure and shot delivery the valve then opens upon screw rotation and positive melt flow preparing for the next shot to be delivered. Each shot is delivered with precise “Shut-off” for each cycle.
The Posi-Shut™ Automatic Shut-Off Valve is compatible with most resins processed in the injection molding industry. A distinctive version is available for the processing of Liquid Silicone Rubber “LSR.” The Posi-Shut™
Valve is an excellent valve selection for structural foam molding. Consult Md Plastics technical staff for design considerations in molding applications involving difficult to process resins.
