Addex introduces ICE, ICE baby

Düsseldorf, Germany — Newark, N.Y.-based maker of cooling technologies for blown film extrusion Addex Inc. exhibited two new products at K 2016. Both were air rings featuring the company’s Intensive Cooling Experience (ICE) technology.

The first has four cooling elements in a stackable configuration and is intended for OEM applications. The second, smaller, single-cooling element model, ICE-enhanced Dual Flow, is intended for retrofitting to existing blown film lines.

The advantage of both ICE products, over existing cooling units, is that the cooling air is directed both upward and downward, according to Addex President Bob Cree.
