Ultrasonic temperature measuring system for polyethylene melts

The ULTRATEMP 6000 is a temperature measuring device, which reliably measures the polyethylene melt in the flow channel between the extruder and the cross head. Therefore, it provides an essential parameter for the process. A too high temperature and, therefore, discoloration of the melt or scorches, can be countered as well as a too low temperature, which causes unmelted material.

The ULTRATEMP 6000 makes an important contribution for process optimization and cost reduction.
