Dynisco's Vertex sensors measure melt pressure directly

Published: November 7, 2012 6:00 am ET

Dynisco LLC says its Vertex melt-pressure sensor is robust, faster and significantly friendlier to the environment than other sensors. The breakthrough lies at the tip of the sensor, where melt pressure is registered directly through a single diaphragm.

That direct measurement eliminates errors than can happen in sensors with complicated internal structures, transmission fluids and moving push rods.

The Vertex diaphragm is much thicker than diaphragms of other sensors, and is made of corrosion-resistant, Inconel 718 alloy.

“For the first time, we’re sensing pressure directly, without using complicated mechanical structures or liquid-fill media,” said Matthew Carrara, vice president and general manager for Dynisco Plastics. “This means faster response and better control for today’s precision extrusion systems. At the same time, the sensor is significantly more robust for longer service life and lower cost of ownership.”

Dynisco is based in Franklin, Mass.
