Sensor System Accurately Monitors Material Level in Pressurised Reservoirs Prevents Contamination during Dispensing Process

A new Low-Level-Sensing Reservoir System from Dymax prevents empty material reservoirs from introducing air into dispensing lines, thereby eliminating contamination during the dispensing process. 

Dymax states the system utilises an adjustable sensor for use with pressurised reservoirs, and features an SB-100 controller which activates a warning when the material in the reservoir reaches a specified low level.  The controller also features an external PLC connection that allows for a total line shutdown, saving time and money by stopping the dispense system when material reservoirs are empty.

The company states the sensor configuration is adjustable, allowing operators to set specific levels of material to signal warning and automatic shut-off options.  The low-level functions include remote visual beacon, audio buzzer, and auto shutdown.  There are no wetted components – the sensor does not contact fluids, so it’s compatible with a wide range of materials.

In addition to adhesives and coatings, Dymax also offers high-performance oligomers and a variety of dispensing and light-curing equipment.  The company’s products are perfectly matched to work seamlessly with each other, providing design engineers with tools to dramatically improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce costs.
