Melt Pressure Transducer Setup
Use a high temperature anti-seize compound to make it easier to remove the transducer
Use a high temperature anti-seize compound to make it easier to remove the Melt Pressure Transducer.
Mounting torque: 100-200inch / lbs. (max.500 inch / lbs.)
The polymer must be in a molten state when the converter is inserted
From engines, heaters, etc. Care must be taken to prevent electrical interference.
Grounding: Be sure to ground the cable to the converter, but NOT at the device side
Twisted pairs will reduce problems caused by induced currents
Calibrate Zero and Gap
Follow the device instructions.
General Working Guidelines
Avoid Cold Starts
If the extruder is not heated properly, the polymer may be in a solid state by the converter. If the extruder is started with solid state polymer, the diaphragm may rupture.
