The best location to mount your Melt Pressure Transducer is in front of the screw where the polymer is in a good melted state and shear stress is minimized. For reclaimed extrusion lines, care should be taken to place the converter far enough from the chamber to allow all pellets to melt, as the partially melted pellets can damage the tip.
Melt Pressure Transducer housings should be installed where temperatures do not exceed 150 ° F.
Care must be taken if the Melt Pressure Transducer is mounted above the extruder. The heat rises and warms the enclosure. If you can touch the torso without burning your hand, the place is probably acceptable. If necessary, a flexible armor style device may be recommended to remove the enclosure from the heat source.
