A simple, sensitive and rugged tank mounted viscosity sensor for use with inks, adhesives, coatings, chemicals and paints is now available from the Norcross Corporation via UK agents Advanced Supplies Limited.
The Norcross MXBO Viscosity Sensor uses the proven “piston time-of-fall” method for measuring viscosities from 0.1 to 100,000 CPS and is PLC compatible for use with a customer’s process controllers. Suitable for water and solvent-based applications with open tanks between 10” and 24” deep, this sensor is unaffected by level or turbulence for high or low mix conditions.
Featuring all stainless steel wetted parts and open rod construction; the Norcross MXBO Viscosity Sensor is easy to clean and works under atmospheric pressure. Capable of detecting the difference between the viscosities of boiling water (0.284 CPS) and ambient water (1.06 CPS), this sensor requires 40 psi dry air, a 3-way 24 VDC air valve, and is furnished with a 2 meter cable.
