Use of thermal oil to heat and cool rotational moulding tool

Direct heating and cooling of the rotational moulding tool, using thermal oil allows greater control of the moulding process and greatly increases the energy efficiency of the process when compared to the current state of the art, where large air ovens are used for heating and forced air or cold water spray are used for cooling. The use of thermal oil could be developed to include energy recycling within the system, where the heat removed from the tooling during cooling is used to reheat the tool on the next cycle or heat another tool in an alternating system.
