Hydrochloric Acid

The Dynatrol® CL10-HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can be used to measure hydrochloric acid.

The hydrochloric acid application software is written to use the temperature and density information that comes from the CL-10HY cell to calculate product baumé, density at a reference temperature, specific gravity and percent concentration.

Automation Products Inc. uses the same reference tables that are used by hydrochloric acid manufacturers to cross check results generated by our hydrochloric acid software.

The CL-10HY and Series 2000 converter have been used to measure hydrochloric acid for chemical applications and low concentration acid mixing. This combination has also been used to measures high concentration hydrochloric acid in acid make-up towers.

Dynatrol® density cells can be supplied with tantalum media contact parts as well as carpenter 20, stainless steel and other alloys that can be chosen for your specific application.

Pipeline

Dynatrol® Density Systems are used worldwide in pipeline applications for measurement and control of density, specific gravity, API gravity or percent concentration. Typical applications are custody transfer or interface measurement and may include crude oil, refined products or various other chemicals.

Dynatrol® Density Cells are used to measure the liquid being transported in the pipeline. The Cell’s operation is extremely accurate and dependable, requiring no pressure compensation.

Working with the Density Cell, the Dynatrol® Digital Density Converter translates the product density and temperature readings into the customers’ required units of measurement. For example, if a United States pipeline requires the American Petroleum Institute (API) scale or a Canadian Pipeline requires output in kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m 3), Dynatrol® electronics are programmed for each application’s specific measurement needs.

The Dynatrol® Systems are user-friendly. Converters come pre-programmed for simple calibration. Many Dynatrol® Density Cells have sustained accuracy in the field without need of service for over 20 years!
