‘A new fluid pressure sensor for process control and validation in critical dispensing and dosing applications’ white paper - .PDF file.

The Flowplus16 pressure sensor from Intertronics is claimed to provide high-accuracy monitoring for critical dosing and dispensing applications. According to Intertronics, in-line pressure sensing can deliver quality assurance across a range of automatic processes, such as in medical, pharmaceutical and semi-conductor manufacturing, as well as the wider areas of process control.

The Flowplus16 is compact and is easily installed into the fluid path by means of standard Luer lock fittings. It measures the pressure of the liquid being dispensed or dosed and provides precise monitoring of material flow. This information is useful in many analytical and laboratory situations, but also has value in production environments where it can detect irregularities caused by air bubbles in adhesives that would disrupt tight-tolerance dispensing on medical devices or visual displays.

The pressure sensor can also identify a blockage building up in filled fluids, thus enabling corrective action to be taken.

Intertronics claims that the Flowplus16 is one of the smallest piezo-resistive pressure sensors available and is maintenance free, featuring an inert fluoropolymer internal coating that provides a smooth and consistent fluid pathway with no internal dead space.

The unit incorporates an integrated microchip that converts the pressure sensing to a standardised 0–10V digital output signal. Any detected pressure fluctuations enable problems to be identified at an early stage.
