A positive displacement flow meter is an excellent choice for measuring mould oil due to its accurate and reliable performance. Positive displacement meters are generally well-suited for measuring low flow rate, high temperature and high viscosity Synthetic mould oil for continuous casting machine.
Mold oil, often used in industrial applications such as injection molding or die casting, requires precise measurement for process control and efficiency.
How positive displacement flow meter work for mould oil measurement?
Positive displacement flow meters operate by dividing the fluid into known volumetric segments and measuring the number of segments that pass through the meter. They are designed to handle a wide range of fluid viscosities, including thick and viscous fluids like mold oil.
Positive displacement flow meters come in various designs, such as gear meters, oval gear meters, or rotary piston meters. Each type has its own advantages and limitations. It's important to choose a meter that is suitable for measuring the viscosity and flow rate of mold oil, however we SILVER AUTOMATION INSTRUMENTS offers oval gear flow meter for mould oil
Here are a few considerations when selecting a positive displacement flow meter for measuring mold oil:
Low flow mould oil measurement by PD flow meter
Mold oil, as lubricating oil, has a very small flow rate in practical use, which may only be 3 L/h or 40 cc/min (ml/min). Only a micro flow meter can measure such a low flow rate, and our small positive displacement flow meter can measure such a low flow rate, which can be as low as 10 ccm, and also the pipeline could be very small, such as 1/4”, 10mm or 1/2 inch.
High temperature mould oil flow meter
During high-speed use, the temperature of the mold can be very high; the normal mold oil temperature remains 80–90-degree C. Maximum temperature of mold oil shoots to 110-degree C.However, users may need the high temperature mould oil can withstand temperatures up to 150°C , we needs the high temperature positive displacement flow meter for mould oil flow rate measurement.
High viscosity mold oil flow measurement
Mold oil generally has a high viscosity. For example, at 40 degrees Celsius, the viscosity reaches 40 Cst. As the temperature increases, the viscosity of the mold oil also decreases , possibly around 10 mm2/s. However, we still need a high viscosity flowmeter to measure the flow rate of the mold oil. Positive displacement flow meter can measure the flow rate of high viscosityoil, and the higher the oil viscosity, the more accurate the measurement. It’s important to select a flow sensor specifically designed to accommodate the viscosity of the mold oil you are working with.
High accuracy positive displacement flow meter for mold oil measurement
We need look for flow meters with high accuracy and repeatability to ensure precise measurement of mold oil. This is particularly important when dealing with expensive oils or when strict quality control is required, our micro positive displacement mold oil flow meter can reach high accuracy at around 0.5% F.S even at such low flow rate.
Pulse output from mold oil flow meter
Positive displacement flow meters are equipped with pulse output capability, typically in the form of a reed switch or Hall effect sensor. This feature generates electrical pulses at a predetermined frequency or based on a certain volume of mould oil passing through the meter.
