Using Fluid Characteristic Indication (FCI) technology, Dr. Eddy displays the condition of the water as it relates to cooling efficiency: laminar flow, transitional flow, or turbulent flow.

Dr. Eddy has four scales built into the meter: three scales for FCI and one scale for flow rate. FCI Scales are selectable and correspond to cooling line port size: 1/4″, 3/8″, or 1/2″. Flow rate scale can be referenced quickly for additional functionality.

The flow scale displays flow rate in litres per minute depending on the model (GPM Available). A dual scale temperature gauge is standard on all models for process comparison to the FCI Scales.

Dr. Eddy applies the science of heat transfer, diagnosing the condition of cooling water lines at a glance. Cooling water capacity can be conserved plant-wide by using the minimum amount of flow that will produce turbulence on all presses.

It may be possible to delay costly water system upgrades by optimizing the flow effectivity.

Turbulent Flow Basics

Turbulent water flow is much more efficient at removing heat in a cooling system than water flowing under laminar conditions. Once turbulent flow is achieved, increasing the flow rate does not significantly improve the cooling rate of the system.

In moulding applications, many mould operators try to maximize the flow of water through their cooling systems to ensure turbulent flow. Doing so increases energy costs for pumping more water than necessary through the system.

This practice may also limit the amount of cooling water available for cooling additional moulds on the same cooling system circuit.

By insuring turbulent flow using FCI Technology, less water can be used in the moulding process, saving precious resources.

Note – The addition of glycol to cooling water can have a dramatic effect on Turbulent Flow, increasing the flow rate needed to achieve optimum cooling efficiency. 10% glycol scale is available.
