Melt Pressure Sensors take the pressure.


Kistler's melt pressure sensors types 4086/87A and 4096/97A are designed for measuring pressure in the extrusion process, providing an accurate, reliable and repeatable output. Types 4086/87A give an output of 3.33 mV/V and types 4096/97A give a 4-20mA or 0-10V output. Both models incorporate an internal 80 percent shunt calibration function and are available in ranges up to 1400bar. Options include a thermocouple output, rigid stem or combination of rigid and flexible stem. All feature a silicon sensing element located directly behind a 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. ________________________________________________ For further information, please contact :- Kistler Instruments Ltd. 13 Murrell Green Business Park, London Road, Hook RG27 9GR Tel: +44 (0)1256 741550 Fax: +44 (0)1256 741551 Email: sales.uk@Kistler.com Website: http://www.kistler.com February 2001
