Introducing Russells cooling tunnels for high speed cooling in many industrial applications including the hose and cable manufacturing. Compact design and rapid product cooling for hose rigidity and a low maintenance design, make our cooling tunnels the most efficient and economical in the business.
Our industrial cooling tunnels can be designed for both relatively small low-heat products and for large high-heat products. They feature a unique design in combination with engineered rapid cooling control that gives optimum results, in an environmentally sound way. Cooling capabilities range from 30,000 Btu/hr to 500,000 Btu/hr depending on the cooling tunnel design features.
Russells cooling tunnels ensure controlled temperature reduction in continuous process systems. They are similar to air convention ovens, but have no heating capability. Cooling tunnels use blowers to force mechanically cooled air (to -20 F) into the tunnel while drawing heated air from the parts out the opposite end. Passing cold air over the parts results in significantly faster cooling times and more even cooling. Continuous cooling tunnels are engineered for applications in which manufacturing time can be reduced and line speed increased. Our compact design takes up a minimum amount of line space…approximately 11 feet in length. Russells cooling tunnels have adjustable height control for running various diameter products. Optional accessories for cooling tunnels include vibrating, lifting, or detachable tables; extra space for product handling; and synchronization with other processing equipment.
A Russells application engineer can assist you in selecting the configuration and size that’s best for you, custom designed your exact specifications.
