The “Hybrid Chill Roll” was designed by the Menges Engineering Team to overcome inner chamber concerns seen in typical chill rolls (which are double-shelled and filled with a thermal transfer liquid). On a standard chill roll, the interior chamber is susceptible to oxidation (rusting), scaling (mineral deposits), and corrosion. This is because, with a traditional design, steel is used on the inner surface of the outer shell, the outer surface of the inner shell, and on the attached spiral wrap. When this material breaks down inside the roller, it leads to loss of thermal transfer performance (the roll doesn’t get as hot/cold as it should), and poor-quality output for the converter.
