PURPOSE

Reduce friction between the sleeve and the plunger

Provide consistent shot velocities

Extend the operation life of both shot sleeve and plunger tip

Eliminate the contaminates getting into the casting

FUNCTION

A carefully measured amount of lubricant is vaporized to form a fine mist

The lubricant spray and air nozzle assembly is securely mounted just behind the plunger assembly

The nozzle technology effectively atomizes the lubricant to reduce overall consumption

Nozzles can be quickly interchanged to provide different spray patterns

Spray pressure and duration are both adjustable

BENEFITS

Reduce cost per shot

Increase plunger life

Increase shot sleeve life

Reduce contaminates
