Micro Molding of Light Weight Spacer by Veejay Plastic 395 S. Main Street, P.O. Box 367, Burlington,IL, US 60109
Introduction: • Successfully completed micro molding of “SPACER”, a polymer post weighing less than 5 milligrams having important functional characteristic in the fabrication and performance of Wrapped Multi Layer Insulation helping Quest Thermal build WMLI prototypes for testing at -320F. • The spacer is part of Quest Thermal Group’s proprietary discrete spacer Technology.
Functionality • Reducing heat transfer through the insulation • Controlling the layer spacing.
Challenges: • Light weight & strong polymer to withstand the tough conditions. • Resistance at high temperature of -320F. • Stand tall on the standards of NASA.
About Spacer User: Scott Dye, CTO and project director at Quest Thermal Group, in Arvada, CO is the principle investigator of the WMLI program conducted for NASA.
Results: • Standard: The injection molding offered by Veejay Plastic meets the NASA standard expectation. • Client Satisfaction: Veejay Plastic is more than happy to add another reputed and happy clients on its list.
To be Continue.. • Mr. Dye (CTO and Project Director at Quest Thermal Group) quoted, “Wrapped MLI provides better thermal insulation for cryogenic piping per layer than conventional insulation methods. • This is direct result of using custom tooled, micro molded polymeric spacer to achieve 3-fold lower heat leak then state of the art vacuum jacketed pipe”.
