Most moulding processes introduce cold water cooling, to reduce the temperature of the mould. This reduces manufacturing times and increases production volumes, in general, the colder the mould is, the faster the manufacturing cycle. However, operating with low-temperature cooling can create condensation problems in the mould, especially in summer. This can cause deformations in the finished product.
A relatively simple alternative to avoid condensation, is simply to increase the temperature of the mould surface, however, an increase in mould temperature leads to longer manufacturing cycles and reduces production volume.
The optimal solution used in the industry for these circumstances is the implementation of a desiccant dehumidification system which enables the dew point on the surface of the mould to be controlled. This will allow manufacturing to operate with lower mould temperatures without risk of condensation formation and therefore increase production volumes while maintaining the quality of the finished product.
