Addex, Inc. is a leading blown film extrusion equipment supplier of patented, highest-output cooling air rings, automatic and manual gauge controls, and the Quick-Change Digital IBC control system.
Addex has taken air ring technology to a new level by integrating Intensive Cooling technology directly into the dual-flow air ring design. Intensive Cooling air rings typically deliver 10%-15% or greater output and better bubble stability—over and beyond Addex’s already high performance, industry-standard dual-flow air ring design. It is not uncommon to see a 30% increase in output, especially for stiffer materials.
This newly adapted, patented cooling technology replaces the standard lower lip with a single Intensive Cooling element on Addex’s dual-flow air ring system. The previous low-velocity lower lip is transformed into a high-velocity air stream, creating two primary locking points instead of just one, to significantly improve bubble stability. The Intensive Cooling air rings also include all of the secondary air collar locking points found with the original air ring design. The units are simple and operator-friendly, allowing a broad range of processes, blow-up ratios, thicknesses, and materials with minimal adjustments.
The new Intensive Cooling technology applies to all of Addex’s air ring products including automatic profile External Gauge Control (EGC), Manual Gauge Control (MGC), Laminar Flow (LFR) air rings and Digital Internal Bubble Cooling Control(DIBC).
