The FlowCon microprocessor controlled water flow regulator allows processors to monitor and regulate up to eight different zones of cooling. By independently controlling the flow of cooling to each circuit, such as gates, cores, asymetrically-used tools, etc., the processor can specify individual temperatures to optimize mold cooling, reduce cycle times, improve part quality and prevent condensation.

FlowCon monitors the temperature of each cooling circuit, and then regulates the flow of cooling water by opening and closing an electromagnetic solenoid valve. The controller allows a maximum temperature difference of 55 F between the settings for various circuits.

The microprocessor control can store up to seven different mold set-ups. Temperature sensors can be located in the mold close to the cavity; in the return line of the individual cooling circuit; or in the return line to the water flow regulator.
