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 starch application software is written to use temperature and density information that comes from the Cl-10HY cell to calculate product baume, density at a reference temperature and specific gravity. Automation Products, Inc. uses the same reference tables that are used by starch manufacturers to cross check results generated by our starch software.
The CL-10HY and Series 2000 combination has been used in processes where starches are used as coatings as well as starch make up tanks and starch dilution applications.
How it works: The Series 2000 Digital Density Converter processes basic information from the Density Cell to calculate density at a reference temperature. The process value can be used to calculate the specific gravity, Baumé and percent concentration. This information is made available to the operator or process engineer.
The standard Series 2000 has an 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 (Density, Temperature, Baumé, Specific Gravity, Percent Concentration).
Dynatrol® Density Systems and Viscosity Systems can be used to measure a variety of substances regularly seen in the petroleum and petrochemical industries.
- Diesel fuel
- Ethane Gas
- Jet Fuel
- Jet A Fuel
- Natural Gas
The Petrochemical application software provided with the Digital Converter calculates the specific gravity, percent concentration, API Gravity, etc. using the density and temperature information generated by the CL-10HY.
- Bunker C
- Crude Blends
- Crude Oil
- Fuel Oils
- Heavy Oils
- Light Ends
- Lubricating Oils
- Vacuum Tower Bottoms
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
