When liquid wax is produced, it consists of two major components. These components are solids or polymers which give the wax a coating effect, and volatile carriers, which are the liquids that keep the polymers in the solution. The volatile carriers will evaporate after use. The ratio between these two components must be closely controlled to obtain a consistent product quality.
Vaisala K-PATENTS® Process Refractometer PR-43-GC is installed in the outlet pipe after blending, or directly in the vessel. The refractometer measures continuously the percent of dissolved solids in the liquid wax product. The refractometer provides Ethernet and 4-20 mA output signals that can be used for automatic control of the blending operation.
