Norcross Corp.”sMXBO tank-mounted viscosity sensor is designed for use with water- andsolvent-based adhesives, coatings, chemicals, inks, and paints. Theviscosity sensor uses the proven “piston time-of-fall” method formeasuring viscosities from 0.1 CPS to 100,000 CPS and is PLC compatiblefor use with the company’s process controllers. Suitable for water- andsolvent-based applications with open tanks between 10 inches and 24inches deep, the sensor is unaffected by level or turbulence for highor low mix conditions. Featuring all stainless steel wetted parts andopen-rod construction, the viscosity sensor is easy to clean and worksunder atmospheric pressure. Capable of detecting the difference in theviscosity of boiling water (0.284 CPS) and ambient water (1.06 CPS),the sensor requires 40 PSI dry air, a three-way 24 VDC air valve, andis furnished with a two-meter cable.
