RDP Electronics has launched LVDTs designed to withstand the harsh environment encountered in pulp and paper manufacturing processes.

Typical applications include the use of slice indication LVDTs on paper machines to measure the gap through which the paper pulp is extruded on to the webbing.

Transducers in this environment are subject to contact with sticky paper pulp that can prove corrosive to materials used in standard LVDTs.

RDP has engineered solutions using special materials and transducers that are resistant to the harmful effects of paper stock.

The transducers are also waterproof and designed to be unaffected by high-pressure water jets used during paper machinery cleaning operations.

The LVDTs are resistant to the operating environment and are sufficiently robust.

RDP Electronics – experts in measurement solutions

Measurement experts RDP Electronics Ltd have 45 years experience in developing transducers for a diverse range of applications in research, prototype testing, industrial plant and machinery, or embodied in products. Examples are numerous, spanning industries that include aerospace, automotive, structural engineering and power generation. The company is responsible for the development and manufacture of a comprehensive programmme of transducer products and associated electronics to recognised international standards for accurate and reliable measurement of displacement, load, pressure and torque. Often the best solutions have a simple elegance that is possible thanks in part to the quality and high reliability of the transducers they supply. Because of their knowledge and expertise RDP’s skilled engineering team is frequently invited to propose solutions to measurement challenges.

RDP Design, manufacture and market a wide range of LVDT and other displacement transducers. LVDT Displacement transducers accurately measure position and displacement. The strength of the LVDT is in its principle of operation. As LVDT sensors are inductive, there is no electrical connection across the sensing element ensuring clean data and a long life.

The LVDT operation principle lends itself to use in extreme environments. LVDTs can be made to work submerged in sea water, in temperatures of 600°C (1100°F) in high nuclear ratiation and at pressures of up to 2000bar (30,000psi).
