Applications

Starches

The Dynatrol® CL10-HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can be used to measure corn or potato starches.

The starch application software is written to use temperature and density information that comes from the Cl-10HY cell to calculate product baume, density at a reference temperature and specific gravity. Automation Products, Inc. uses the same reference tables that are used by starch manufacturers to cross check results generated by our starch software.

The CL-10HY and Series 2000 combination has been used in processes where starches are used as coatings as well as starch make up tanks and starch dilution applications.

Petroleum and Petrochemical

Dynatrol® Density Systems and Viscosity Systems can be used to measure a variety of substances regularly seen in the petroleum and petrochemical industries.

Density Applications

The Dynatrol® CL-10HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Digital Density Converter can be used to measure density of:

  • Butane
  • Crude
  • CO2
  • Diesel fuel
  • Distillates
  • Ethane Gas

Terephthalic Acid

Dynatrol® provides Bulk Solids Level Detection for terephthalic acid applications in plants where the acid in the powder form is air transported. Dynatrol® Density Systems are used in terephthalic acid applications in siutations where the acid is carried as a slurry.

Bulk Solids Level Measurement

The CL-10DJ series level switches are used for terephthalic acid applications in plants where the acid in the powder form is air transported . The level switch can detect the presence of the acid powder it comes in contact with and then engage a remote alarm or light to indicate that a hopper or other vessel is full or empty.

Our standard level switches are made from 316 stainless steel. For more abrasive or more corrosive service they can be constructed from other materials.

Density Measurement for Liquids & Slurries

The CL-10HY Series Density Cells are used in terephthalic acid applications in plants where the acid is carried as a slurry. The density cells can detect the exact density of the acid/ liquid combination and can be used to either control the dilution of the slurry or alert operations when the proper concentration is reached. The standard density cells are made with 316 stainless steel media contact materials.

For more abrasive or more corrosive service can be made from other materials.

Sodium Hydroxide – Caustic Soda

The CL10-HY Density Cell in conjunction with the Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can measure the temperature and density of a caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) process stream. The Series 2000 then processes this information.

Once the information is processed the density is calculated at a reference temperature. The specific gravity, baumé and percent concentration are then calculated from the reference temperature and the density at the reference temperature and this information is made available to the operator or process engineer.

The standard Series 2000 has a analog output corresponding to either of these process variables. Optionally, it can be programmed to have two analog outputs that can be calibrated for any two process variables (Temperature, Baume, Specific Gravity, Density, Percent Concentration, °Twaddle).

Steel

Dynatrol® Density Systems and Bulk Solid Level Detectors are used in steel production factilities. We measure density, specific gravity, percent solids or percent concentration of quenchants, such as brine, caustic soda solutions, oil, water or oil-water emulsions, as well as lubricants and slurries at most process conditions in steel plants.

Density Measurement

The Dynatrol® CL10-HY Density System can be used to measure density, specific gravity, percent solids or percent concentration of quenchants, such as brine, caustic soda solutions, oil, water or oil-water emulsions, as well as lubricants and slurries at most process conditions in steel plants.

Bulk Solids Measurement

The CL-10DJ series of level switches are used for high-, intermediate-, or low-level detection of bulk solids in baghouse applications, dust collection systems and bulk solids storage application in hoppers, silos and bins.
