Safety for your dosing process
The piezoresistive relative pressure sensor flowplus16
The flowplus16 is specifically designed to meet the needs of semi- and fully automated dosing processes. On the basis of its small and compact design, also including the signal amplifier, the device can be integrated space saving in various applications by Luer-system. The sensor provides in addition a temperature compensated, linear output signal in the range of 0.1-10 V. Due to that fact, flowplus16 is ideally suited for implementation in industrial processes with a master controller (PLC). The dead spot-free fluid channel with high chemical resistance diaphragm made of perfluoro-elastomer (FFKM) is especially suitable for different kind of aggressive media. The sensor is most appropriate for processing anaerobic adhesives which cure in contact with metal ions and can solidify completely. Flowplus16 is interpreting pressures from 0-16 bar and the 3 kHz sampling rate guarantees a very high resolution depending on the electronic evaluation.
All of these features make this sensor an ideal solution for the use in series production processes like optical bonding, conformal coating, encapsulating, glop top or dam & fill applications. In summary it can be said, that pressure analysis is the key to success, particularly using flowplus16.
Characteristics and challenges in micro dispensing
Micro dispensing means: High accuracy requirements. Pressure is a decisive indicator to obtain information from the process. Monitoring the pressure fluctuations, various conditions of the process could be identified. Therefore pressure detection is of essential importance. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the combination of different materials plays the most important role in dosing technology. Because of this fact direct metering with conventional pressure sensors, using a metal diaphragm is mostly impossible.
Additionally small and complex assemblies make integration of usual sensors in existing systems very difficult.
Certainly, the compact pressure measuring sensor flowplus16 from ViscoTec is presenting a perfect solution to many problems in the scope of dosing.
