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!

Oleum

The Dynatrol® CL10-HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Density Digital Converter can be used to measure oleum (fuming sulfuric acid).

The oleum application software is designed to use the temperature and density information that comes from the CL-10HY cell to calculate product density at a reference temperature, specific gravity and percent free SO3 concentration or the output can be expressed as a sulfuric acid concentration.

Automation Products, Inc. uses the same reference tables used by oleum manufacturers to cross check results generated by our oleum correction software.The CL-10HY and Series 2000 combination have been used to measure oleum for chemical applications and acid mixing.

Our 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.

Power Plant

Dynatrol® instruments provide Bulk Solids Level Measurement of fly ash applications, Density Measurement of water treatment chemicals, various liquors and lime slurries and Viscosity Measurement of fuel oil and waste oil.

Bulk Solids Level Detection

Dynatrol® CL-10DJ series level switches are used for fly ash applications in power generation plants and for fly ash collection. These level indicators are also used in applications where fly ash is used as a filler. Our CL-10DJ level probes are made from high strength stainless steel. For more abrasive or corrosive service, our level switches can be made from other materials. These level switch probes are well suited for the high temperature and harsh environments that are always a part of fly ash applications.

Density Measurement

The Dynatrol® CL-10HY Density Cell and Series 2000 Digital Density Converter can be used to measure density, specific gravity or percent solids of water treatment chemicals such as caustic soda or sulphuric acid. Our equipment is also used to measure black liquor, green liquor and lime slurries, etc. at process conditions.

Our application software is written to use temperature and density information that comes from the CL-10HY cell to calculate various units at process conditions

Viscosity Applications

The Dynatrol® CL10-DV series Viscosity Meter and Series 3000 Viscosity Digital Converter are used to measure the viscosity of fuel oil in fuel oil to burner applications. Thus, helping to increase combustion efficiency and decrease particulate emissions. Dynatrol® Viscosity Systems are also used in waste oil incineration and waste oil pumping applications.
