 Kistler's range of extrusion sensors and indicators

The Kistler melt pressure sensors, types 4086/87A and
4096/97A, designed for measuring pressure in the extrusion
process, provide an accurate, reliable and repeatable output.

Types 4086/87A give an output of 3.33 mV/V and types 4096/97A
give a 4 - 20 mA or 0 - 10 V output. Both models incorporate an
internal 80% shunt calibration function and are available in ranges
up to 1,400 bar. Options include a thermocouple output, rigid stem 
or combination of rigid and flexible stem.

Both the 4086/87A and 4096/97A feature a unique silicon sensing
element which is located directly behind a very rugged diaphragm.
This thick diaphragm makes it possible for it to be cleaned with a
bronze or copper wire brush and to withstand abrasive materials. 
The lack of any type of fill, such as mercury or oil, makes it safe to
use in any application, including the extrusion of medical and
pharmaceutical products, food and food packaging.

The 4626A series is Kistler's new range of digital panel indicators.
Suitable for use with the above sensors, they are also compatible
with the industry standard. Features include sensor interrupt detection,
Fast-Cal calibration, sensor power supply, comprehensive alarm 
functions, front panel control, universal power input, analogue output
and serial communications interface.
