Works Melt Pressure Sensor Transducers Carefully
The Melt Pressure Sensor Transducer should be removed while the chamber is hot and wiped with a non-abrasive cloth.
All transducers must be removed before cleaning an extruder sleeve with a wire brush or special cleaning compounds. One of these can damage the diaphragm of the Melt Pressure Sensor transducer. The Melt Pressure Sensor Transducer should be removed while the chamber is hot and wiped with a non-abrasive cloth. The transducer hole should also be cleaned with a cleaning drill and guide sleeve.
While the electronic circuitry of a standard Melt Pressure Sensor transducer is designed to withstand the rigors of the extrusion process, most transducers are not waterproof and will not work when wet. Make sure that the water cooling jackets in the extruder chamber are free of leaks that could damage the transducer. If you know that the Melt Pressure Sensor Transducer will inevitably be exposed to water or moisture, specify waterproof transducers.
