RTM Flow Series Injectors with Data Acquisition:
The Radius RTM flow series injectors
are designed to inject single component or pre-mixed
multi-component resin systems. Displacement of
resin from the delivery cylinder is achieved by
a piston that is actuated by an electric stepper
motor. The resin delivery cylinder is wrapped
with a silicon pad heater capable of achieving
temperatures up to 350° Fahrenheit. All surfaces
that come in contact with resin are constructed
from aluminum, which is hard anodized to improve
durability. This series of injectors can function
in either a stand-alone mode or integrated with
Radius Engineerings FlowareTM software.
Our FlowareTM software provides the user with
the ability to control the injector from a personal
computer. Parameters such as flow-rate, pressure
set points (maximum pressure is 400psi), cylinder
and line temperatures can be defined by the user
prior to each injection. Also provided are outlets
for four type-J thermocouples and one pressure
transducer. These additional outlets can be used
to monitor tool properties. These properties as
well as all injector parameters can be recorded
by the FlowareTM software. Data acquisition is
not possible when the injector is used in the
stand-alone mode. The stand that supports the
injector, and its associated control enclosure
is made from steel with locking casters.
- The piston and resin delivery
cylinder are designed to be able to maintain
an internal atmosphere under pressure or vacuum.
- PID temperature control for
resin cylinder and line heater enclosed in console.
- Emergency stop push button.
