Part Cleaning Demonstration with the Dynisco PolyClean

This video demonstrated how to clean parts, in this case pressure sensors, using the PolyClean fluidized temperature bath.

Dynisco’s PolyClean is a fluidized temperature bath that will clean parts and tooling  2 to 3 times faster and safer than traditional cleaning methods, such as ovens. Dynisco’s fluidized bath system is air¬controlled with advanced PID temperature controller for optimal thermal performance. The system uses aluminum oxide sand (heated up to 1112°F) and air to surround the part or tooling. The “sand” will gently breakdown the polymer without damaging the part or tooling.

Dynisco Polyclean Fluidized Baths

Dynisco Polyclean Fluidized Baths

Cost-Effective, Fast, and Safe Way to Clean Various Plastic Processing Components

The Dynisco PolyClean Fluidized Temperature Baths come in three models and offer a cost-effective, fast, and safe way to clean various plastic processing components. PolyClean Fluidized Temperature Baths are applied in any polymer manufacturing or laboratory facility that needs minimal operator interaction and a low risk of harm to essential design requirements of a part during the cleaning process. 

The PolyClean 6L Fluidized Temperature Bath is ideal for cleaning small tooling from laboratory extruders or injection molding machines. 

The PolyClean 12L cleans extrusion tooling and other forms of hardware, forms parts, calibrates and tests various sensors and systems, heat treats metals and heats reactors, coils, flasks, and containers. 

The  26L PolyClean has similar functions and benefits to the PolyClean 12L, but its 26" deep basket allows it to clean larger components than the PolyClean 12L

Which Melt Pressure Sensor Is Good for My Application?

Melt Pressure Sensor Selection

So how do I choose the right melt pressure sensor for my application? 

A sensor is defined through the following specifications:

  • Pressure Range
  • Process connection
  • Electrical output and connection
  • Capillary configuration (rigid/flexible)
Melt Pressure Sensor

There are more variables come into play, but let's focus on these four since they are the most critical.

Melt Pressure Sensor Pressure Range


The pressure inside a plastics processing machine can usually be estimated well enough to determine a sensor's good pressure range. The typical working pressure should be within 20%-80% of the sensor's pressure range to balance accuracy and lifetime.

Melt Pressure Sensor Process Connection


For threaded connections in plastics processing, a standard has developed over time, which is the ½"-20UNF thread with a conical sealing face. There might be situations where different thread sizes or a flange connection is required. There are numerous options available from manufacturers, such as Dynisco, to satisfy customer needs regarding the process connection.

Melt Pressure Sensor Electrical Output


Melt Pressure Sensor Electrical Output

A pressure sensor is an electro-mechanical device that converts a mechanical effect (pressure deflects a thin piece of metal) into an electrical signal through a strain gauge. The strain gauge changes its resistance by following the deflection of the metal piece. In the simplest case, the strain gauge signal can be used directly to feed a read-out device to display the pressure.  In order to accommodate industry-standard equipment, such as process control equipment, manufacturers like Dynisco supplies sensors with different amplified output options such as 4-20mA or 0-10V.

Melt Pressure Sensor Capillary Configuration

Melt Pressure Sensor Capillary

A typical pressure sensor has a liquid-filled capillary that connects the process-connection diaphragm (which is deflected by the process pressure) and the measuring diaphragm (where the strain gauge is bonded). This capillary is necessary to create a heat barrier, as the strain gauge cannot withstand the typical process temperatures at plastics processing. Also, the sensor's electronics need to be kept away from heat sources as well as possible. To find a suitable mounting location for the electronics, countless combinations of the rigid stem and flexible connection lengths are available.

Other Considerations in choosing a Melt Pressure Sensor:

  • Diaphragm materials
  • Diaphragm coatings
  • Approvals and certifications

Polymer Analysis Using ASTM/ISO Method A Testing and the Dynisco LMI5500 Melt Flow Indexer


One of the specific ways to speed development, quality testing, and analysis of polymers is the ASTM/ISO Method A Test using the Dynisco LMI5500 melt flow indexer. This test is used in order to determine flow characteristics of plastic melts are used in various plastic processing techniques, namely extrusion and injection molding.  

The LMI5500 brings a new level of ease of use with its removable inspection plate, increased access for sample cutting, and improved touch screen. This device provides values on the melt flow rate melt volume rate and melt density of polymers to ensure that the conditions of production are at peak efficiency without sacrificing the quality of your products. Upon test completion results are viewable, and can be sent to the cloud. The information obtained from this test is important for achieving a quality product while maintaining a high level of efficiency in production.
