dc.description.abstractPlastic resins used in injection molding have to be dried to specified levels prior to feeding them to the molding machines. Excess moisture if present could cause damage to the injection nozzle and also could cause polymer degradations within the mold. The required dryness is specified in dew point temperature units, and vary depending on the resin, the mold and the molding process. Typically the drier is set for the worst possible conditions. So there are opportunities for energy savings. This study conducted by Southern California Edison Company has identified two opportunities for energy cost savings for the customer. First, and the simplest is a control strategy to delay the regeneration cycle to "nonpeak" which results in dollar savings to the customer. The second involves installation of dew point meters and a programmable controller to tailor the regeneration cycle to the required dew point temperature.en
