The Aerodynamics of Blown Film Bubble Cooling

Q:  What is theory behind heat removal with an Air Ring and IBC system?

Note: Links containing additional information are located at the end of this FAQ!

A:  "Commercial blown film production is often limited by the rate of cooling that can be achieved in the production line.  The flow of the cooling air (through narrow passages and around the curved bubble) is characterized by rather complex aerodynamics, including the Venturi and Coanda effects."
