Understanding the Flow Rate of Plastic Granules

Understanding the Flow Rate of Plastic Granules

Plastic Granules are the base material required for multiple industries for producing plastic products. Do you have any rough idea how much amount of plastic products are manufactured on daily basis? As per a survey, we found that about 40 trillions of plastic material are composed on daily basis in a particular city. Now just imagine the volume of the entire nation. This is because of the use of the plastic material in almost everywhere. The plastic components are used in cars, the plastic boxes are used for domestic use. The plastic sheets are used to cover the packaging and much more. And what is the base for all this? The plastic granules. They are the raw material which was used to be melted and then composed as per requirement. They are not just a base material their properties matters a lot. In this post, we will learn more about the flow properties of plastic granules with the help of Melt flow index tester.

The plastic granules are transformed into a whole new plastic material by melting it. And this process I believed to be very critical the flow of the molten plastic decides its quality. The molten plastic is flown and then its rate of flow is noted as per that the plastic manufactures decide their material for manufacturing. For instance, one manufacturer produces plastic toys and he wants his material to be exactly as per his requirement now the standard at which they decide to choose a plastic material if the MFI index that Melt flow rate index. It can be evaluated by using an efficient machine. There are many machines which are used to evaluate the MFI value.  But it is very important that you use the perfect instrument which is designed as per standards. Presto Melt Flow Index Tester is the best know instrument which is used by various industries and brands to evaluate the MFI value of their plastic material.
 
By this machine, you can put the plastic granules inside a heating barrel and then add a fixed amount of pressure over it the heat and allow it to flow. The machine has also and automated cutting facility it cuts the flowing melted plastic at a particular length automatically means no case of human error. It is also standardized by international testing authorities.
