Straight Shot® Hot Sprue Bushings TR-Series Straight Shot ®
The DME standard TR-Series Straight Shot® Hot Sprue Bushing, like the standard T-Series, improves the performance of three- plate runner molds by minimizing the length of protrusion on the runner system. This bushing features a “reverse taper” design that originates from under the heat source, providing easier start-ups. The TR-Series design can also be used when a reverse taper will benefit a particular application. The bushing is supplied with a .12 diameter orifice and a .25 long reverse taper. The orifice may be enlarged and the taper increased to suit. The bushing is available with either 1 / 2 " or 3 / 4 " spherical radius, 120 or 240 volt heater and a 7 / 8 " or 1 3 / 8 " long stripper-plate bushing to suit the application.
NOTE: The expansion factor must be taken into consideration prior to machining for and installation of the bushing. This factor (BE) must then be added to the A dimension. The formula for determining this expansion factor is as follows: BE = “A” dimension x 0.00000633 x nozzle set point - 68ºF (assuming the mold is at 68ºF during operation). If mold temperature is different, substitute 68ºF with actual mold temperature.
EXAMPLE: Given a setpoint of 500°F:
BE = 1.375 × .0000063 × (500 – 68) = .004 thus 1.375 + .004 = 1.379. Please note that the above information is given as an example. Variations may occur based on mold configuration and cooling factor. In some instances, it may be necessary to obtain an empirical factor.

NOTE: 5° heater lead is standard. For 90° lead, add “90” to end of item number (e.g., SSBT4517TR10790).
Important: To prevent “pushback” of the hot sprue bushing due to injection pressure – and assure a positive tapered seal with the stripper plate bushing – secure the hot sprue bushing to the A-Clamping Plate. A dowel or flat key installed under the locating ring (shown) or clamping-type locating ring may be used.
For Improved Performance and Increased Productivity: • Use DME standard T-Series (3-Plate)
