Applications

Filled Asphalt

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.

Hydrochloric Acid

The Dynatrol® CL10-HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can be used to measure hydrochloric acid.

The hydrochloric acid application software is written 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 hydrochloric acid manufacturers to cross check results generated by our hydrochloric acid software.

The CL-10HY and Series 2000 converter have been used to measure hydrochloric acid for chemical applications and low concentration acid mixing. This combination has also been used to measures high concentration hydrochloric acid in acid make-up towers.

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.
