Tempco Melt Pressure Transducers

are used to sense the pressure associated with the extrusion processing of plastic materials. They range in pressure from

0-500 PSI to 0-20,000 PSI with temperatures in the range of 70-750°F. Typical transducer outputs are 3.3 mV/V, 4-20 mA, 0-5 V, or

0-10 V (at full scale output).

APPLICATION

Plastic materials are formed to shape by a process defined as extrusion. This is accomplished by first softening the material with heat. Through the use of a drive screw, which is rotated by a motor, the material is forced toward and then through an opening, called a die, used to shape the plastic melt.

Various compounds, colorants and additives, can be mixed with the plastic materials as they move along the screw path. The heated materials are shaped by the die and/or other post extrusion equipment and then cooled to retain their shape.

WHERE AND WHY TRANSDUCERS ARE USED

Melt pressure transducers can be effectively used along many points of the extrusion process for a variety of reasons:

1.

From a quality control viewpoint, a transducer should be located in the die. The measurement of the melt pressure at this point is used as an indication of flow rate.

2.

To indicate when a screen is in need of changing and also to insure the safety of personnel and equipment alike, a transducer will be located somewhere ahead of the screen changer. These are most likely located either in the adapter or along the screw path within the barrel. An even more accurate determination of screen plugging can be made by reading the differential pressure between transducers located on either side of the screen, one being in the adapter, the other located in the barrel ahead of the screw tip.

3.

For research and development purposes, Tempco transducers should be located at various points along the barrel in order to accurately monitor the pressure and mixing characteristics of the melt.

4.

Transducers are also used for pressure sensing on post-extrusion equipment such as blow molding heads, extrusion pumps, and spinnerettes.

5.

Locating transducers anywhere along the apparatus also serves to improve

the safety of the extruder.

END PRODUCTS OF EXTRUSION

The end results of the extrusion process can be found in various products.

Some examples include:

1.

The feedstock for other plastic packaging systems used for compounding and mixing.

2.

Plastic film used to create bags and packaging materials.

3.

Plastic tubing, hose, and pipe to contain water, gases, or chemicals.

4.

Insulated cable and wire housing.

5.

Filaments used to create textiles, brushes, rope, and twine.

Tempco Tip Material Options

The standard

Tempco transducer diaphragm is machined out of a single piece of type 15-5 PH stainless steel

(.0045") and then heat treated and finally Armoloy coated. This material gives Tempco transducers the transverse strength and toughness needed for most standard applications.

There are, however, certain extrusion processes that require different types of diaphragm materials and/or coatings. Tempco is able to supply customers with diaphragms and coatings specifically suited to their needs and applications.

ELECTROLESS NICKEL COATED DIAPHRAGM

The Electroless Nickel diaphragm option gives the transducer an advantage in abusive environments. The Electroless Nickel offers abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance. This is due to a phenomenon called reduce skin friction. This material will also cut down on diaphragm failures due to adhesion of melt to diaphragm during the process.

There are two different versions of this diaphragm option available. The first is a standard thickness (0.0045") diaphragm made of 15-5 PH stainless steel and then coated with a 0.0002" electroless nickel coating. This version is applicable for use in any pressure range plastic extruder. The second version is a 0.0080" thick diaphragm made of 15-5 PH stainless steel coated with a 0.0002" electroless nickel coating. This version is applicable for use in plastic extruders with pressure ranges of 7,500 PSI and up.

HASTALLOY

®

TIP AND DIAPHRAGM

TITANIUM NITRIDE DIAPHRAGM

This option gives the transducer a Hastalloy tip. This Hastalloy ®

® C-276 tip extends along the stem and includes the 45° cone and threads. The diaphragm

(.0045") is also manufactured of Hastalloy ® .

Hastalloy ® should be used when the following chemicals are present in the process:

HCL Hydrochloric Acid

HF Hydrofluoric Acid

HBn Hydrogen Bromine

HI Hydrogen Iodine

For example, HCL is present when processing PVC and HF is present when processing Teflon ® . If

Hastalloy is not used during these processes, the transducer diaphragm will fail prematurely due to stress cracks as a result of stress corrosion.

Recommended Use: Applications that are extremely corrosive.

The titanium nitride diaphragm is offered for its excellent abrasion resistance.

Its abrasion resistance is superior to the electroless nickel coated diaphragm and like the latter diaphragm the titanium nitride diaphragm comes in two different versions. The first is a standard thickness

(0.0045") diaphragm made of 15-5 PH stainless steel and then coated with a 0.0002" titanium nitride coating. This version is applicable for use in any pressure range plastic extruder. The second version is a 0.0080" thick diaphragm made of 15-5 PH stainless steel coated with a 0.0002" titanium nitride coating. This version is applicable for use in plastic extruders with pressure ranges of 7,500 PSI and up.

INTERNAL RESISTANCE CALIBRATION

SPECIAL DIAPHRAGM

Special 0.006" thick Inconel ® prietary coating diaphragm with a pro-

This special diaphragm is designed to be used in extremely abrasive environments. Superior to all other diaphragm materials for corrosion and abrasion resistance, examples of applications requiring this diaphragm option are ceramics or glass filled nylon.

Recommended use: Applications that are extremely abrasive.

INTERNAL RESISTANCE

CALIBRATION TRACKING

An internal compensation circuit insures that the shunt calibration output will track any changes in pressure sensitivity

(output) due to changes in temperature of the strain gauge housing. The simulated output, therefore, is 80%, ±0.25% of the full scale pressure output over the entire operating temperature range.

Tempco strain gauge sensors rely on the small change in resistance of each strain gauge to generate an analog signal that is proportional to the applied physical input. This resistance change is generated by straining a structural element to which the gauges are attached. The same output can be accomplished by electrically offsetting the resistance of one of the strain gauges through a simple shunt resistor network.

This offsetting resistance network is built into each Tempco transducer.

During manufacturing, each Tempco transducer is pressure calibrated using highly accurate pressure sources and instrumentation. The signal output versus pressure input characteristic is thereby precisely known.

The internal resistance network is adjusted so that the output generated by the shunt resistor simulation method matches precisely the calibrated output of the transducer at a selected point on its calibration curve. The standard simulation value is 80% of the full range rating of each transducer but other values may be chosen.

Applications of Melt Pressure Transducers

Pressure monitoring is a fundamental quality control technique used in modern extrusion processing. Typical applications include:

Film

Adaptable for either blown process or slit casting, pressure monitoring can help produce thinner, more uniform film at faster process speeds. The pressure transducer also provides primary process information helpful for maximizing productivity and minimizing start-up scrap.

Synthetic Fibers

Accurate, reliable pressure monitoring helps deliver greater consistency with less waste by reducing high speed variations, even with high performance fibers.

Wire Coating

Pressure monitoring right in the crosshead die where the wire is coated with plastic insulation improves throughput, quality, and profits. This process parameter has become even more important as wire take-up systems go to higher and higher speeds.

Pipe, Tubing, and Profile

A basic process parameter, pressure monitoring allows tighter tolerances, improves product quality and significantly improves cost effectiveness even for complex and multi-hollow extrusion.

Melt Pressure Transducers

PROPER CARE

for Tempco Melt Pressure Transducers

OVERVIEW

The

Melt Pressure Transducer

is a measuring instrument that is subject to damage if mishandled, improperly installed, or dropped.

MOUNTING THREADS

The transducer mounting threads should be a

1

2

-20UNF-2B and should be cleaned and inspected prior to the installation or reinstallation of a transducer. The use of a high temperature anti-seize compound will help in preventing galling and will allow easy removal of the transducer. Copper graphite antiseize compounds should be used, such as Never-Seez by

Bostik or C5-A by Felpro.

SENSING DIAPHRAGM

The Tempco fluid transducer is a sealed system. The sensing diaphragm is one of the most important components of the transducer. The diaphragm is a one-piece construction, machined out of 15-5 PH stainless steel and is coated with

Armoloy to increase the surface hardness, offering resistance to abrasion. It has a nominal thickness of 0.0045 inches.

If the sensing diaphragm becomes damaged—that is, dented, gouged or deformed in any way, the transducer will no longer provide accurate readings and should be returned for repair/replacement.

MOUNTING TORQUE

Although the transducer is capable of being installed at a mounting torque of up to 500 inch-pounds without damage or zero shift, an adequate seal is made with 100-200 inch-pounds.

Excessive mounting torque will cause seizing and make the transducer difficult to remove.

OPERATING TEMPERATURE

The transducer tip is capable of operating at temperatures up to 750°F (400°C). The transducer electronics are capable of operating at temperatures of up to 170°F (70°C). It is important that the electronic housing not be placed on top of a heater or a heat source.

TRANSDUCER MOUNT

A bad transducer mount is one of the key causes of damage to the transducer. Extruder barrel wear should be monitored.

As the extruder barrel wears, the transducer tip will get closer and closer to the barrel bore until flush with the sidewall. Once the tip is flush, it will then wear at the same rate as the extruder barrel. To alleviate this problem, Tempco recommends that the transducer be recessed 0.015 inches from the barrel bore. A copper shim can be manufactured (to seal on the 45° seating surface) that will act as a spacer backing off the transducer tip from the inside barrel bore.

If the transducer tip protrudes into the extruder barrel, it is subject to unnecessary wear and is vulnerable to damage by a passing screw flite.

Another common transducer mount problem that is a result of barrel wear is rollover. Over time the opening into the barrel is reduced from the recommended dimension of .312"/.314". If a transducer is installed in this under-size hole, the tip becomes crimped or forced into a cone shape, deforming the sensing diaphragm and thus damaging the instrument.

GAUGING THE TRANSDUCER MOUNT

The transducer mount should be gauged prior to the installation of a new transducer or replacement of an existing transducer.

The proper method for gauging the transducer mount is to use a gauge plug coated with machinists blue. If the blue is removed in an area, then there is a burr or imperfection in the transducer mount that must be repaired.

COLD STARTS

One of the most common causes of diaphragm damage is cold starts. A combined temperature and pressure transducer can be used to insure that the extruder barrel is up to temperature prior to the rotation of the extruder screw.

REMOVAL/REPLACEMENT

The transducer should only be removed or replaced while the machine is at operating temperature and the polymer is liquid.

Removal of the transducer from a cold extruder will cause diaphragm damage due to polymer adhesion. A transducer should never be installed into a transducer mount where there is solid polymer. If the diaphragm is forced against a solid, the transducer can easily be overloaded and left with a very high zero offset—too high to be re-zeroed by the zero potentiometer on the instrument.

TIP CLEANING

If the transducer is removed warm, the tip can easily be cleaned with a soft cloth. If there is solid polymer present, a fluidized bed cleaning system can be used. Never use a wire brush, knife, or torch to clean the tip of a transducer.

Given proper care, Tempco transducers will provide years of service.

Melt Pressure Gauges

With or Without Adjustable Alarm Setting

Tempco’s Melt Pressure Gauges

provide highly reliable, maintenance free, local pressure indications for extrusion and other plastics processes. The sensing diaphragm is designed for minimum deflection, maximum durability, and maximum overload capability.

Design Features

Three models are available:

A rigid stem unit for standard installations

A 30-inch flexible capillary with stainless steel armored jacket between the gauge housing and the stem to allow greater installation flexibility in tight places or for easier viewing and durability.

The third model provides all the features of the

30" flexible capillary model with the addition of a thermocouple (J-type) output for temperature.

All models are rugged, totally self contained and allow extrusion processors to benefit from the significantly improved efficiency that goes with pressure monitoring—at about half the

Melt Pressure Gauge without Adjustable Alarm cost of strain gauge melt pressure transducers.

Each of the models is also available with an optional

adjustable alarm. This adds safety by shutting down the process in the event of a high pressure condition.

Optional diaphragm materials are available for applications that require extra abrasion and/or corrosion resistance. These options are exactly the same as the diaphragm options for melt pressure transducers.

Since there is no need to touch what you are measuring, temperatures of hazardous, hard-to-reach, or moving materials can be taken without getting burned or shocked—and without contamination.

The

BAT LC

is also designed to be held away from the eye.

So your vision is not blocked in dangerous environments.

Accurate and Reliable

Proven circuitry assures accuracy and repeatability, even for targets as small as 2 cm (0.8 in.) in diameter. The rugged optics are environmentally sealed, so you get measurements you can count on, day after day, even in the harshest conditions.

so you can pinpoint small targets at a distance— even in the dark!

Special Features

Powered by a single 9V battery,

BAT LC

models measure temperatures from -4 to 932°F (-20 to 500°C). The

LC4

also has an adjustable high alarm, temperature recall, adjustable emissivity, and MaxScan, a handy feature that tracks the highest temperature measured.

The Best Feature is the Price

No other portable noncontact thermometer delivers this much for the money. As for a return on investment, a

BAT LC

could easily pay for itself the first time you use it by spotting a minor problem before it turns into a major one.

MEASUREMENT

has been around for years to increase productivity, reduce costs and improve product quality. Microfabrication techniques have allowed us to reduce the size and cost of our sensors, bringing the benefits of this technology to a new group of users. The NCIT-

LC is designed for applications in the

0°C to 500°C (32°F to 932°F) temperature range.

12-18

World’s Smallest IR Sensors

The NCIT-LC is a two-piece system with a miniature sensing head and separate electronics. The sensor is small enough to be installed just about anywhere, yet it performs as well as much larger systems.

The sensor is housed in rugged stainless steel to ensure long-term performance, even in harsh environments with ambient temperatures up to 85°C (185°F). And the NCIT-LC’s response time is as fast or faster than many high-end systems.

Rugged, Reliable, Practical Features

The NCIT-LC’s electronics include: Emissivity and selectable Peak Hold, Valley Hold, and

Averaging—features you won’t normally find in systems in this price range. Output format is field selectable.

Accessories, including an air purge jacket, air cooling jacket, and mounting adapters, ensure accuracy in applications ranging from plastics manufacturing to food processing.

Affordable IR

The NCIT-LC’s miniature size and low cost make it ideal for installation at multiple points along your process. Accurate. Easy to install.

Practical. With the NCIT-LC, precision infrared temperature measurement is now an economic alternative.

Lower cost sensors are available with fixed emissivity; consult

Tempco for further details.

Noncontact Thermocouple for

Special Temperature Measurement

The NCIT line brings the benefits of non-contact temperature measurement to an increasing number of applications in which cost is a major concern.

Advances in optical and electronic design, originally developed for high-end infrared systems, have been adapted to this low-cost line without compromise in performance when compared to infrared sensors that cost twice as much just a few years ago.

The NCIT models can’t scratch, tear, smear, or contaminate because they don’t make contact with your product. They are easier and safer to install and maintain because they can be positioned away from hot and hazardous processes and moving products.

They remain accurate over a longer time because they’re not subjected to the abuse that a contact device receives. And they deliver much faster response time than contact thermocouples, while rivaling their accuracy and repeatability.

In the long run, non-contact thermocouples can help you improve quality, speed production, and save money.

Small, Rugged and Versatile

Most of the electronics are contained in the remote circuitboard—not the sensing head, so it’s small enough to fit in tight places. If it’s necessary to get in close, the NEMA-4 sensing head can withstand ambient temperatures to 185°F (85°C) without a special cooling jacket. The optional cooling jacket takes the rated ambient up to 350°F (177°C).

Excellent optical resolution is offered for the price. With standard and close-focus models, you can mount the unit further away or up close, and still focus on small target areas.

Microprocessor technology makes it possible to offer a wide temperature range and four outputs: Type J, Type K,

1 mV/degree, and contact closure.

Adjustable Setpoint Model

The model NCIT-4 offers the additional capability of on/off control, alarm annunciation, or other automatic action by giving you a remotely adjustable setpoint. When the setpoint temperature is exceeded, a contact closure is actuated. The setpoint is operable throughout the 0 to 1000 degree range.

Each NCIT includes sensing head with quick-release cable (15 feet), electronics board, mounting nut, fixed bracket and if required, a rugged NEMA-4 electronics enclosure.

Proven Technology

Noncontact infrared temperature sensors have proven advantageous and reliable in many industries for over 25 years.

Tempco brings this technology to you at a price competitive with thermocouples.

If temperature is a factor in your quality and manufacturing yield, then put this technology to work for you.

The TEMPCO series of Current Sensing Relays provides an effective and highly stable method for monitoring electrical current.

The current-carrying wire is routed through the opening extending from the top of the case. When current reaches the level set by the trip point adjustment, the electromechanical relay is energized.

An adjustable timer is provided to delay activation of the relay. A precision voltage reference circuit ensures a highly repeatable trip point. Design of the power-on delay circuitry allows the supply power to be repeatedly cycled on and off, without affecting the stability of the current sensing operation.

Chart Recording Made Easy

Tempco’s

Series 345

100 mm chart recorder is a rugged unit designed to perform in most difficult industrial environments. A durable metal chassis construction insures trouble-free reliability and quality construction.

Designed for ease of use, the

Series 345

chart recorder comes with front mounted operator controls. These controls allow access to many of the operations that these recorders can do—from setting alarms to chart speed selection to printing mode.

With the annotation option, readings are easily and clearly marked for easy analysis later. This option records the date, the time, the minimum and maximum measured values, and chart speed—just to name a few.

Features

100 mm Strip Chart

One, Two, or Three Pen Continuous Trace

40 Character Vacuum Fluorescent Display

Thermocouple, RTD, mV, and V Input

Digital Accuracy 0.1% of Span

EEPROM Memory Ensures Total Security

Chart Annotation Option for Logging, Scaling and Text

Printing

Powerful Yet Simple Interface

Application specific programming can be done via the integral keyboard. Menu driven selections provide prompts instructing the user on the alpha-numeric display with six front panel keys to completely configure the recorder. The alpha-numeric display is a 40-character vacuum fluorescent display that displays real time information or programming menus.

Channel information can be displayed two ways: Individually, with value, channel number, units, tag name, and alarm information; or three channels displayed simultaneously with value and units. Long life, plug-in ink markers, three available print modes, and a selection of chart sizes and speeds allow a great selection in the variety of output available to be charted.

Never Lose Important Information Again

Information is backed up by EEPROM and RAM microchips with battery back-up. Thus a power failure does not require a total reprogram of the recorder.

The

Tempco 345

chart recorder also has fully isolated universal input channels capable of accepting RTDs, TCs, current, dc volts, and millivolt sources.

Adaptable to Whatever Needs You Have

Universal inputs make data sampling simple. Data can be measured using thermocouples, RTDs, or a simple millivolt or volt signal can be used. The operating voltage of the unit is factory preset to 115 volts; however, the unit is internally switch selectable for 230 volts. Chart speed is also flexible, capable of ranging from 1 mm every hour to 1 cm every second. This is programmed via the integral keyboard and thus is easily changed from application to application.

There are also many customizing options available. The annotating option mentioned above allows the recording of data directly on the chart while it is graphing. An event input option is offered that allows an external event to activate a function of the recorder. There is also a relay output, option which is activated by an internal trigger or an external event input. Even a locking glass door is offered as an option.
