Applications

Sugar

Dynatrol® Density Systems calculate the density, percent solid expressed as °Brix, or Baumé of sugar syrups. Dynatrol® provides Bulk Solids and Liquid Level Detection for sugar applications for dry bulk sugar, as well as sugar liquor and various liquid syrups.

Dynatrol® can help you calculate the density and provide you with level detection for dry bulk sugar applications, as well as, sugar liquor and various liquid syrups.

Density Measurement

The Dynatrol® CL-10HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Density Digital Converter calculates the density, percent solids expressed as °Brix, or Baumé of sugar syrups. Dynatrol® Density Systems may be used to measure syrup at cutting mills and sugar refineries, as well as in evaporators and crystallization vacuum pans. These accurate and reliable measurements can be performed at process conditions.

Bulk Solids Level Measurement

The Dynatrol® CL10-DJ Level Detector complete with EC-501A control unit is used for high-, intermediate-, or low-level detection of bulk solids in bins, hoppers or silos. Within the sugar industry typical applications include:

  • Cane Juice Crystals
  • Dextrose
  • Fructose Powder
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Raw Cane Sugar
  • Sucralose
  • Sugar Beet Seed
  • Sugar Crystals
  • Sucrose Sugar
  • ...and more

Liquid Level Measurement

The Dynatrol® CL-10GH Liquid Level Detector complete with EC-501A-(G) control unit is used in the Sugar Industry for application to either high or low point level detection of:

  • Corn Syrup
  • Fructose Syrup
  • Invert Sugar Syrup
  • Liquid Sugar Cane
  • Maple Syrup
  • Sugar Liquor
  • Sucrose Syrup

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.

Pipeline

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!

Starches

The Dynatrol® CL10-HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can be used to measure corn or potato starches.

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.

Refining

Dynatrol® Density Systems are used on many applications in Petroleum Refineries, Sugar Refineries, Sugar Cane Cutting Mills and Bio-Refineries. Dynatrol® Bulk Solids Level Swtiches are used in Bio-Refineries to measure grain or natural cereals in hoppers.

Density Measurement

Dynatrol® Density Cells are used in Petroleum Refineries and water treatment withing those refineries on applications including:

  • Butane
  • Caustic Soda
  • Diesel Fuel
  • Gasoline
  • Jet Fuel
  • Kerosene
  • Propane
  • Sulphuric Acid
  • ... and many more

Sugar Refineries and Cutting Mills use Dynatrol® Density Cells to measure the concentration of sugar syrups and various chemicals used in sugar processing to maintain quality assurance standards.

Bio-Refineries, producing ethanol from corn, utilize Dynatrol® Density Cells primarily for measuring the density of the mash. The mash is ultimately processed into “beer” and further processed into ethanol.

Bulk Solids Level Detection

Dynatrol® CL-10DJ series are used in Bio-Refineries to measure grain levels in hoppers or the level of natural cereals produced from the biomass.
