Pressure & Temperature Sensors

Pressure Sensors - Dynisco sensors have been developed as excellent measurement solution for plastics extrusion, molding, and process control applications, and come in mV/V, mA, VDC, and HART-compatible melt pressure sensors. Dynisco has over 60 years experience producing and advancing their pressure sensor technology, making their sensors a perfect solution for any sensing application. Their transducers are capable of high accuracy pressure measurements while withstanding the most corrosive environments. Many of Dynisco's pressure transducers and transmitters have temperature measurement capabilities, this increases the sensors overall accuracy by compensating for temperature changes in the sensor. Dynisco allows you to customize your own sensor to perfectly fit your specific application, and if you have any questions regarding these customizations, here at PICS we will help you find exactly what you need.

Temperature Sensors - Dynisco offers a wide range of temperature sensors, including melt temperature devices that accurately measure temperature in the melt stream. Their products are perfect for the extrusion and polymer processing industries. They also offer temperature sensors paired with pressure sensors to work with varying levels of temperature, this added level of technology increases the overall accuracy of the product. They offer standard melt thermocouples to specifically designed thermocouples that are made for more advanced applications. All of their instruments are designed to be compatible with Dynisco’s other product lines making overall setup quick and easy. Overall Dynisco offers superb sensors that read temperature with excellent accuracy.

  • Retractable Melt Thermocouples

Pressure & Temperature Instrumentation - Dynisco offers high quality discrete, auto-tuning controllers that are perfect for applications such as polymer melt pressure or temperature on a plastics extruder. Dynisco will provide you with an instrument that is reliable, and perfect for your application. These products feature bright displays that are read easily from a distance. All of their devices are completely configurable allowing for an increased area of functionality. Also they offer process indicators that can display a large range of thermocouple, voltage/current, and strain gauge inputs. Both of these devices have optional versions that add additional functionality for processes that require simultaneous monitoring pressure and temperature. Dynisco’s instruments offer a wide range of customizability for any process; these customizations include control capabilities, digital communications, process and instrumentation diagnostics, and other features. These devices are all around exceptional machines that can be made for any application that you may have, call us at PICS, and we will dedicate ourselves to helping you find the perfect instrument for your process.
