Smartflow® Scientific Cooling

Course Highlights

  • Learn energy principles in relation to specific polymers
  • Understand how heat transfer and energy flow affect part quality and cycle time
  • Create heat budget and balancing using energy flow calculations
  • Understand Reynolds number’s relationship to turbulent flow
  • Learn turbulent flow’s impact on sustainable molding practices
  • Study the three R’s of scientific cooling (reveal, record, repeat) to develop and maintain efficient cooling setup and processes
  • Review coolant delivery and distribution principles
  • Discover water chemistry’s effect on cooling efficiency
  • Participate in hands-on activities to reinforce learning objectives


After successful class completion, with a minimum test score of 70 percent, participants will earn a Scientific Cooling Certificate. They will have the tools needed to implement scientific cooling principles in the molding process.

Course length: 2 days
