Press Release Summary:
With 3-piece construction, Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tips offer body and spherical retainer that fit most valve sizes, requiring conical seat to be customized to specific OEM design. Offered with consistent shut-offs, products provide flow paths with no dead spots to allow for flow of resins and permit easy cleanup when changing resin colors. During screw recovery, resin travels short distance through valve, resulting in low pressure drop and low shear.

Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tips Join IMS Line-Up
Chagrin Falls, OH. . . . .Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tips (patent #6499987) have been added to the extensive line of products available from IMS Company, a leading distributor of accessory equipment and supplies for the plastics processing industry. Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tips are the first IMS product line introduced under the exclusive IMSelect(TM) brand name. Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tips offer superior shut-off performance for more consistent part quality and long wear life.
With three-piece construction, the Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tip design features a body and spherical retainer that are standard components fitting most valve sizes, requiring only a conical seat customized to the specific OEM design. Additionally, the unique design of the Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tip addresses the common problem of front seat wear where the ring wears into the retainer affecting performance and the life of the valve. Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tips solve the problem with geometry and design, rather than metallurgy, which translates into cost-savings for the user.
With quick, consistent shut-offs, Posi-Trol(TM) Screw Tips offer distinct advantages over other three- and four-piece valves on the market. Generous flow paths with no dead spots allow easy flow of resins and permit easy clean up when changing resin colors. During screw recovery, the resin travels an extremely short distance through the valve, resulting in low pressure drop and low shear. The low pressure drop during the screw recovery phase parallels a lower pressure gradient during the screw forward phase, assuring positive, quick shut-offs and material savings. The design is proven with a variety of resin viscosities and applications.
