WRITTEN BY ON

Choosing the right purging compound is important.

Looking for a quick payback on your investment? How does an immediate return and prolonging the life of your equipment sound.

If you are not considering using a purge compound as a cost savings, then you might want to reconsider. Introducing a purge program is one of the most effective ways to get immediate savings.

A large injection molder in the South, supplying automotive interior parts, asked if we could help them save and minimize their cost of color changes.

It was costing them approximately $198.00 per color change on a 1,000 ton injection molding machine, cleaning screw, barrel, and valve gated manifold. We were able to decrease their machine downtime time by 35 %. Cutting there purge usage by 43%. We were able to save them a total savings for a single color change of $73.00.

If you have 5 – 1,000 ton machines and you perform 2 color changes per week, based on a 48 week year, your possible savings would be $34,925 per year.

If you have costly material or color changes, request a free consultation and we will help you achieve great cost savings.
