Dynatrol® Bulk Solids Level Detectors provide accurate point level detection for carbon black, rubber granules, pellets or powders. Dynatrol® Density Systems and Viscosity Systems are designed to measure density or viscosity at process conditions of latex, various rubber coatings or chemicals.
Bulk Solids Level Measurement
The CL10-DJ series of level switches are used to measure high-, intermediate-, or low-level detection of bulk solids. Applications for the Rubber Industry may include:
- Carbon Black
- Rubber Granules
- Rubber Pellets
- Rubber Powder
The Dynatrol® CL10-DV series Viscosity Probes and Series 3000 Viscosity Digital Converter are used to measure the viscosity of:
- Adhesive Rubber Coating
- Conformal Coatings
The Series 3000 digital converter can also process temperature. If the data is available the temperature can be used to either compensate for changes in temperature or correct to a reference temperature.
- Adhesive Rubber Coating
- Conformal Coatings with Solvent
- Rubber Chemicals
- Slab Dip
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® 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
This level detector operates successfully with consistent results on difficult product applications like FLOUR, COCOA, SUGAR, PHARMACEUTICAL POWDERS, POWDERED LIME, FERTILIZER, FOOD SEASONINGS, PLASTIC POWDERS, PVC and PVA POWDER, STARCH, TALC, TiO2 POWDER and additional bulk solid materials.
The Dynatrol® CL-10GJ Detector is designed for application to either high or low point level detection of bulk solids. The GJ Detector is constructed to handle sensitive or problem applications that have a tendency to bridge or pack.
Used on the following applications:
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.
