Reiloy Barrels, Custom Screws & Valves
Improve your production rates (cycle times) by more than 25% by simply changing to an improved screw design. In other cases, part reject rates have been reduced from more than 5% to less than 1/2 of 1% by utilizing a custom designed mixing screw. These facts alone illustrate the importance of the screw and its design to efficient processing performance.
Premature and uneven barrel wear is expensive in terms of both replacement costs and lost process efficiency. Reiloy Westland Corporation barrels are lined with an A-11 tool steel for exceptional longevity and uniform wear. For low abrasion applications, we keep your costs down by using D-2 tool steel
Valves may be of a special design or from a selection of three piece free-flow, four piece, side or front discharge ball check types. Both valves and end caps are manufactured from steels or alloys that are best suited to the processing environment in which they will be used. Various tool steels that are heat-treated and/or nitrided, nickel alloys, chrome plating and special coatings are all options from which to choose.
