TSBM stands for Twin Sheet Blow-Molding. This patented process from INERGY combines the components integration possibilities of half-shell processes with the advantages of standard blow-molding process.
With this new process, INERGY is able to reach new performance levels with regards to:
While traditional plastic tank blow molding process requires multiple welding operations of externally mounted components, TSBM integrates components into the fuel tank during the blow molding process.
TSBM technology increases the system design flexibility and allows the integration of standard or specific components, in order to get optimized fuel functions, such as:
During the polyethylene sheets extrusion, a central core is placed between the mold halves in order to fix, by welding or rivet snapping, the accessories required by the fuel functions. Components that can be attached to the central core include baffles, gauges, valves, jet pumps, lines, fuel modules, and canisters.
In production since 2008 and awarded by several automotive and industrial organizations, TSBM meets the strictest emissions requirements while providing performance, weight and cost benefits.
