Applications

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.

Beverage

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.

Density Measurement

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.

Sodium Hydroxide – Caustic Soda

The CL10-HY Density Cell in conjunction with the Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can measure the temperature and density of a caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) process stream. The Series 2000 then processes this information.

Once the information is processed the density is calculated at a reference temperature. The specific gravity, baumé and percent concentration are then calculated from the reference temperature and the density at the reference temperature and this information is made available to the operator or process engineer.

The standard Series 2000 has a analog output corresponding to either of these process variables. Optionally, it can be programmed to have two analog outputs that can be calibrated for any two process variables (Temperature, Baume, Specific Gravity, Density, Percent Concentration, °Twaddle).

Rubber

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

Viscosity Measurement

The Dynatrol® CL10-DV series Viscosity Probes and Series 3000 Viscosity Digital Converter are used to measure the viscosity of:

  • Adhesive Rubber Coating
  • Latex
  • 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.

Density Measurement

The Dynatrol® CL10-HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can be used at process conditions to measure density, specific gravity, percent solids, or percent concentration of

  • Adhesive Rubber Coating
  • Conformal Coatings with Solvent
  • Latex
  • Rubber Chemicals
  • Slab Dip

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.
