Concrete mixing facilities use Dynatrol® CL10-DJ Level Detectors to measure high, intermediate, or low levels of various media types in the concrete production process.
Bulk Solids Level Measurement
The Dynatrol® CL10-DJ series of level detectors are used for high, intermediate, or low level detection of bulk solids. Applications in concrete mixing facilities may include:
- Concrete and mortar mix
- Crushed stone
- Recycled crushed concrete
- Other aggregates
Our CL10-DJ level switches are made from high strength stainless steel. These switches are used as ‘point level’ indicators and have dry Form C contacts.
The CL-10DV series Asphalt Viscosity Meters are used to measure the viscosity of hot liquid asphalt. These viscometers are used in the roofing industry to measure the viscosity of asphalt filled with powdered limestone. Filled asphalt is primarily used to make roofing shingles.
Another use for the CL-10DV Asphalt Viscosity Meter is in asphalt adhesive. Once shingles are manufactured, the shingles are glued together with asphalt adhesive. By controlling the viscosity, a very high quality shingle can be manufactured that does not waste basic materials.
The Asphalt Viscosity Meter consists of a Dynatrol® Viscosity probe, a Series 3000 Viscosity Converter and a VRO-1 signal conditioner. Dynatrol® Viscosity probes are manufactured for use in very unforgiving environments, such as those found in roofing material plants. The Dynatrol® Viscosity probes can withstand high temperatures, dust, dirt and a wide range of line voltages and at the same time send out very accurate viscosity information.
The phosphoric acid application software is designed 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 phosphoric acid manufacturers to cross check results generated by our phosphoric acid software.
The CL-10HY and Series 2000 combination have been used to measure phosphoric acid for chemical applications and low concentration acid mixing. It has also been used to measure high concentration phosphoric acid in acid make-up applications.
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.
Dynatrol® provides Bulk Solids for milling industry applications. Our point level detectors are used for measurement of high, intermediate, or low level detection of dry ingredients in bins, hoppers or feeders.
