NORCROSS CORP.: Viscosity & Temperature Control System (9/24/09)

This company has announced the availability of a new viscosity and temperature control system that has no moving parts and is compatible with any PLC.

The ViscSense® Viscosity Control System features an intuitive touch screen controller and employs a compact acoustic wave sensor that can be installed in-line within a process, regardless of orientation, to continuously monitor viscosity and temperature.  Unaffected by flow or vibration, this viscosity control system has no moving parts and can measure low-shear viscosities from 0 to 600 cps and temperatures to 220°F, depending upon the material.

Providing on-the-fly readouts in any cup value, the ViscSense Viscosity Control System is suitable for use with low-viscosity coatings or inks and applications with from one to 10 stations. Compatible with any PLC, the controller operates on 24 VDC and provides 4-20 mA, RS232, and CANBUS outputs. The sensor weighs 8 oz. and has a 1/2 NPT pipe connection.

The ViscSense Viscosity Control System is priced from $8,995.00 complete with a controller and from $5,495.00 for the sensor and interface. Literature and quotations are available upon request.
