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!
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.
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.
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® Density Systems provide continuous, accurate analysis of process liquids or slurries in a variety of industries including foods, paper coatings, refined petroleum products, sugar and sulfuric acid. Digital read out allows you to display density as Specific Gravity, Grams/CC, °Brix, Baumé, API Gravity, Percent Solids, or Percent Concentration.
Dynatrol® Density Systems provide continuous analysis of the following process applications:
