Sensors and process monitoring for absolute process reliability
With the flowplus-SPT M6, ViscoTec is now launching the world’s smallest flush pressure sensor with a chemical – largely inert – pressure membrane made of FFKM. The miniature sensor is also currently the only sensor that achieves both pressure and temperature measurement with an M6 thread as process connection and a sensor body that is only 15.3 mm short.
Here, the flowplus-SPT M6 sensor measures pressures of the material to be dispensed up to 40 bar at a temperature range from 5 to 50°C. The miniature sensor fits perfectly into the material outlet of ViscoTec dispensing systems, but can also be installed in other applications, where its small design reduces possible material losses due to dead space-optimized components. Thanks to its intuitive mechanics and short cable length, integration into ViscoTec dispensers is quick and easy, so that the flowplus-SPT M6 is immediately ready for process data acquisition.
The very small design of the sensor simplifies an implementation – even with small installation space. The flowplus16 can be integrated into existing processes via a luer lock connection. It is easy to clean and therefore changing materials or changings in the system configuration can be done quick and easy.
The coating of the flow channel – which is out of a perfluorelastomere – guarantees very high chemical resistance. This means, the sensor is suitable for nearly all materials in the fields of medical technology, bio technology or also electronics. And next to the ViscoTec dispensers also perfectly suitable for microdispensing technology from preeflow.
The data can be stored on a USB stick and exported or transferred to other systems via a 15-pin sub-D interface. The evaluation unit has a 5” touch display which shows the pressure signals and limit curves in color. The limit curves and ranges can be set via a teach-in to evaluate the pressure signals.
The flowplus-MONITOR QC works together with the sensors flowplus16 or flowplus-SPT M6. The evaluation unit is easy to install and operate and works in a temperature range between +10°C and +40°C.
In the life science industry flowplus supports especially doctors, biologists and chemists in the research and diagnosis with a wide variety of media and controls the dosage of such media.
The electronic industry, especially the semiconductor industry demands high precision and reliability. Due to the miniaturization of components and electronic parts a maximum process safety and reliability in this industry is essential, which will be guaranteed by the fluid sensor flowplus.
Analysts and laboratory technicians benefit from the high accurate and reliable fluid sensor by the research and analysis of various body fluids. The fluid sensor is mainly used for hightech and fully automated applications.
Fully automated processes require and need a highly precise dosage control and evaluation of the pressure to guarantee the process safety and quality standards.
The photonics nowadays including not only the information technology, but also the modern lighting techniques with LED’s, OLED’s and laser light sources. This micro- and nano-structured components require a maximum process reliability which is guaranteed through the dosing control flowplus.
