Dynatrol® Density Systems are used to measure the concentration of Boron in nuclear power plants, as well as nuclear fuel manufacturing plants. Dynatrol® Systems have been used successfully in nuclear industries throughout the United States and are field proven.
The Dynatrol® Density System has two 4 to 20 milliamp outputs. The first output can be configured to reflect any of the measurement units (density, specific gravity, percent concentration, etc.), while the second output carries product temperature information. The software provided with the Series 2000 Digital Converter calculates the specific gravity, percent concentration, etc. using the density and temperature information generated by the CL-10HY Density Cell
Dynatrol® instruments are used for a variety of applications in the Pharmaceutical industry including:
- point Level Detection of capsules or powdered coatings of tablets
- determining the Viscosity of coatings, creams and ointments
- evaluating the Density of hydrogen peroxide, oil mixtures, and other liquids or slurries.
Bulk Solids Level Detection
The Dynatrol® CL10-DJ series of level switches are used for level detection of dry ingredients in bins, hoppers or feeders. Typical applications for both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical processes include:
- Hard and Soft Gelatin Capsules
- Powdered Materials for Coating Beads and Tablets
- Fillers and other substances that vary widely in bulk density or particle size.
The Dynatrol® CL10-DV series Viscosity Meters and Series 3000 Viscosity Digital Converter are used to measure viscosity at process conditions in vessels, reactors or process piping. Typical viscosity measurement applications include:
- Silicon Fluids
The Dynatrol® CL-10HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Digital Density Converter can be factory programmed to use temperature and density information from the CL-10HY cell to calculate specific gravity, percent solids or percent concentration at process conditions. Pharmaceutical industry applications include:
- Hydrogen Peroxide
- Oil Mixtures
- Propylene Glycol-based Fluids
The Dynatrol® CL-10DJI Interface Level Detector has the unique ability to detect:
- a liquid and settled bed of solids
- a liquid and floating bed of solids
- the liquid phases of products having significantly different viscosities
Typical applications of The Dynatrol® CL-10DJI Interface Level Detector include WATER/CARBON, WATER/SAND, LIQUID/CATALYST INTERFACES and those that occur in steeping processes.
Used on the following applications:
- Black liquor/soap
- Coal/coal water slurry
- Polymer grade lactic acid/water
- Rice/water interface
- Salt/water interface
- Sodium sulfate crystal/water
- Water, oil/metal fines
Dynatrol® Liquid Level Switches are used in storage tanks or vessels at the point where level detection is needed. Dynatrol® Density Systems are commonly used on fructose and juice applications throughout the industry.
Liquid Level Detection
Dynatrol® CL-10GH Liquid Level Detector can be used in Beverage Industry applications where it is necessary to know the high. mid or low level point of fructose, corn syrup or sugar liquor in a tank or other vessel. The Dynatrol® level probes are inserted into the storage tank or vessel at the point where the reading needs to be taken. When the product reaches the level probe the probe will detect its presence and close a contact. This contact closure can be used to turn on an alarm, a light or can be used as a computer input. The contact arrangement of the Dynatrol® level switch lends itself to use in either high or low level applications.
The Dynatrol® CL-10HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Digital Density Converter can be used to measure fructose corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose syrup, or dextrose. The Dynatrol® Density System uses temperature and density information from the CL-10HY cell to calculate degrees BRIX, Baumé or density at a reference temperature. Automation Products Inc./Dynatrol® software uses the same reference tables that are used by sugar growers. The CL-10HY and Series 2000 combination has been used in processing corn syrup as well as other syrup applications such as soft drink bottling and mixing. For many years the Dynatrol® Density System has been used for fructose applications within the Food Industry.
Evaporators/Concentrators: Vegetable Juices
The Dynatrol® CL-10HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Digital Density Converter are used to measure density or percent concentration of dissolved or suspended solids for condensed juices, vegetable juices and broths in the beverage or food industries. Concentration of vegetable juices can be measured by the Dynatrol® Density System and the results can be used to control the evaporation process.
Dynatrol® Level Switches can be inserted into the storage tank or vessel at the point where the reading needs to be taken. Dynatrol® Density Systems are used in the brewing industry to measure various media.
Bulk Solids Level Detection
The CL10-DJ series of level switches are used for high, intermediate or low level detection of bulk solids like:
- grain storage for the beer brewing process
The Dynatrol® CL-10HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Digital Density Converter combination is used to measure the density of beer and corn mash. The alcohol content and point in the fermentation process can be determined by the density measurement.
The Dynatrol® Density System has two analog outputs, one for density and one for temperature and is used for measuring:
- corn beer and mash in distilleries for whiskey
- ethanol when used as a gasoline additive
