3D Printed Components for Spiroll's Vortex Extruder

3D printed components for Spiroll’s Vortex Extruder

Spiroll engineers have used innovative 3D printing technology in a bespoke cooling system for the company’s Vortex Extruder to enhance its performance in very hot climates.

The usual solution to regulate heat generated by electrical systems used in industrial plant is to draw in surrounding air to cool the system. However, in some situations the air is too warm to provide effective cooling of the electrical components. To overcome this problem, Spiroll has designed a new cooling system for its Vortex Extruder, specifically for use in hot climates.

The bespoke closed loop system draws hot air from the top of the unit housing the electrical circuitry, passes it through a chiller, feeding it back into the bottom of the unit to provide the necessary cooling.

Location of the ducting within the cooling system required a number of custom-made components which would fit the compact design of the extruder. Spiroll was able to 3D print the parts at its Leeds production facility tailoring the items specifically to suit the available space.
