PTF06 Series Pressure Transmitters

PTF06 Series Pressure Transmitters are very accurate and reliable instruments, which convert pressure inputs to current or voltage signals. These transmitters are equipped with a damping element to direct away pressure peaks or liquid hammering from their sensors; hence showing a high level of resistance to mechanical shocks. The typical response time of the PTF06 transmitter is 1 ms, and will never exceed 5 ms, even when the damping element is functioning and the fluid viscosity is at its peak.

The industrial PTF106 Pressure Transmitter meets the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements of IEC61000-6-2 and IEC61000-6-3.

Quill diameter sizes range from 1/4" (DN 8) to 2-1/2" (DN 65). They are available in the following sizes 1/2" (DN 15) to 3" (DN 75) with threated, socket or flanged connections.

Picklex® 20 - Metal Surface Cleaner - Surface Rust Remover

Picklex® 20 acts as a metal surface cleaner, surface rust remover, 100% rust converter, very long term rust inhibitor, pre-treatment/conversion coating and a sealer, for any ferrous & non-ferrous metal surface, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, galvanized steel etc.). Applied by spraying, brushing, wiping or dipping process. Picklex® 20 does not cover up rust.

  • Metal surface cleaner: Cleans light mill oil, cutting fluid dust

  • Surface rust/flash rust remover: Does not etch the metal surface and therefore the metal surface stays intact

  • Rust converter: Converts 100% rust and scale (pitted rust and heat scale such as mill scale) on the metal surface to a pre-treatment/conversion coating, ready for welding & finishing

  • Rust inhibitor: Picklex® 20 coating provides a very long-term indoor rust prevention (in terms of several years).

Tips for Melt Pressure Transducers

Proper installation and maintenance are the key to optimum transducer performance and longevity. Follow these tips to obtain accurate, reliable melt pressure measurements.

Melt-pressure transducers are used to improve extruder output and melt quality, improve production safety, and protect your machinery. Meeting product quality specifications such as part dimensions and surface finish with minimal material waste requires maintaining optimum processing pressure during production.

Transducers are sensitive components that are easily damaged if not installed and maintained correctly. Following a few simple guidelines will help ensure the longevity of your sensors and enable you to get accurate, reliable measurements.

The concept of temperature

From a physical point of view, heat is a measure of the energy contained in a body due to the irregular motion of its molecules or atoms. Just as a tennis ball possesses more energy with increasing speed, so the internal energy of a body or gas increases with increasing temperature. Temperature is a variable which together with other parameters such as mass and specific heat describes the energy content of a body.

The basic measure of temperature is the degree Kelvin. At 0ºK(elvin) the molecules of every body are at rest and it no longer has any thermal energy. There is therefore no possibility of negative temperatures since there cannot be a state of lower energy.

In every-day use it is general practice to use the Celsius scale (previously Centigrade). Its zero is placed at the solidification point of water since this point is very simple to reproduce in practice. Now 0ºC is by no means the lowest possible temperature as everyone knows from experience. By extending the Celsius scale to the lowest possible temperature where all molecular movement ceases we reach a temperature of -273.15 degrees.

DYNAMIC DESCALER® Works On Limescale, Water Scale And More!

DYNAMIC DESCALER® (Bio Descale as it is known in Europe) is the world's fastest, safest and leading Biodegradable Descaler that is designed to dissolve the toughest water scale, limescale, mud and rust deposits from any piece of water-based equipment. Get rid of water scale, lime scale and other mineral deposits!

Whether you are descaling heat exchangers, chillers, condensers, pumps, cooling towers, boilers, tubes, pipes or any equipment that comes in contact with water, DYNAMIC DESCALER® (Bio Descale) is the Biodegradable Descaler of choice. Water scale on any heat transfer surface reduces the effectiveness of that heat transfer. This results in reduced equipment efficiency while increasing energy consumption, increasing costs and even increasing plant downtime.
