Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox & David Ortiz on their World Series Victory and History!
Please take a look at our various applications, upcoming events and company news.
Process Sensors Corp. (PSC) specializes in NIR transmitters for the measurement of moisture, coat weight, and film thickness in the packaging industry and moisture, oil, flavorings and degree of bake in the food industry. The MCT NIR transmitters are also used in mining, powder, and chemical industries. Pack Expo offered an opportunity to exhibit our products!
The MCT360 NIR Transmitter is routinely used at the inlet and exit of dryers, re-moisturizers, flavoring drums and other unit operations. The Guardian Cross Direction Web Profile System incorporates the MCT360 with an automatic scanning frame and encoder to supply a zoned web profile for monitoring or control of paper, film, foil or metal webs. The MCT330 is a stainless steel NIR gauge for high temperature, wash down or hazardous environments. The MCT660 Bench Top Analyzer is designed for at-line or laboratory measurement to speed grab sample analysis. Process Sensors also introduced the top of the line MCT460 series of NIR transmitters.
PSC also manufactures the RFM1000 for process moisture measurement in thicker packaging materials and whole nuts and beans and the RFM1000 BT for at-line and lab Radio Frequency measurements. PSC IR Division markets a wide variety of Thermal Imaging and Temperature measurement systems for process and hand held applications.

Be sure to visit Process Sensors Corporation at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013 (Booth S-7818), September 23-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. We will have our application experts and top executives on hand to answer your questions. Process Sensors will be showing our Guardian Cross Direction Web Profile System, our NEW MCT460 NIR Transmitter and our MCT660 Bench Top Analyzer for on-line, at-line and laboratory measurements. Please call and schedule an appointment to meet at our booth or just stop on by to visit with us! What happens in Vegas could help your bottom line and improve product quality.
The PACK EXPO show floor showcases state-of-the-art materials, machinery and methods for packaging and processing from 1,600 exhibiting companies.
The Rainbow Mountains in China are real, not photo shopped. Formed over millions of years, sandstone marking different geological ages have been pushed up by colliding tectonic plates. Wow! Happy Friday from Process Sensors!
Process Sensors Near IR Transmitters can view product through windows to provide measurement of moisture and additives. The MCT360 can measure important process parameters through polymeric food grade windows, quartz, sapphire and other suitable materials. The MCT360 NIR Transmitter supplies large digital display, trending, analog and digital outputs. Please contact us to discuss your application for scanning product through a window at 508.473-9901.
PSC IR Division has released the new Surveyor Series of Themal Imaging Cameras Brochure for your review.
Hot Melt Measurements are typically measured with Near Infrared (NIR) transmitters that provide a digital display in engineering units (GSM, mils, microns, lbs./ream or other), analog outputs and a digital interface. The NIR non-contacting Hot Melt measurement is extremely accurate and stable with no regulatory requirements. The measurement can be fixed point or scan across the web to provide a cross direction web profile.
Paraffin Wax is largely accepted as the first hot melt coating application. Polymer and copolymer resins brought a host of formulations for improved performance properties that continue to expand the horizons of Hot Melt applications. Roll Coaters, Die Coaters, extruders, and doctor blade configurations are among the methods of applying hot melt adhesive. Roll coaters offer more flexibility than die application methods as they change over more quickly and allow for stripe coating. Die Coaters offer more precision across the web, especially in the 15 to 20 GSM. Hot melt applications of 100 GSM are very common and the range can go from 0-400 GSM.
Melt coating dies vary from 100mm to 3m, depending on the application. The greater the number of dies, the greater the control across the substrate web to achieve set point. When dies malfunction or get contaminated, they need to be detected, maintained or replaced.
The Guardian CD Web Profile System provides a Cross Direction web profile on a 19” flat panel LCD in an economical and attractive enclosure. The Guardian is fully automated with recipes for web width, scan speed, zone average, and data logging digital outputs. This is a complete system to provide the highest value performance to cost ratio. The system can supply CD Web Profiles and MD Trends for hot melt thickness, moisture and temperature. Multiple measurements can be mounted on a single screen.
