Y-Block Manifolds and Valves
Get More from Your Process
Y-Block adaptors divide and direct the melt flow from a single extruder to feed two or more forming dies. Whether a simple ‘Y’ block or a more complex multi-port manifold, PSI blocks excel in streamlining and balancing flow while minimizing residence time to the die.
- Volumetric flow to the individual dies is controlled by manual or automated valves or by the inclusion of PSI gear pumps.
- Flow through one die continues unimpeded while the other is taken offline for exchange or cleaning. Plus, an added benefit of fewer extruder shutdowns & startups.
- Economies of operations are gained with lower investment, operating, maintenance and energy costs for multiple extruders in favor of a single larger extruder feeding multiple downstream forming lines.
