Nordson Meters Monitor and Control Material Flow


DULUTH, GA | Nordson Corp. offers TruFlow meters that enable monitoring and control of material flow during all phases and line speeds of production for nonwovens, packaging applications, and more. 

This variation management capability allows manufacturers to measure, understand, and improve material delivery and dispensing, reportedly enabling manufacturers to reduce waste, improve product quality, and enhance production efficiency. Variation management is said to be especially valuable in nonwoven disposable hygiene product manufacturing with demanding, rapidly changing flow requirements during ramp-up and ramp down-phases.

The TruFlow meter is a simple, positive-displacement meter said to measure actual material flow rates accurately and consistently. The meter operates across a broad flow range, 10–500 ccs/min, as well as a wide spectrum of material viscosities and temperatures.

Company says meters have a durable design and construction, making them easy to install and minimizing maintenance. Simple connections and compact size mean TruFlow meters are adaptable to most production environments.

TruFlow meters join the family of TruFlow applicators and dividers to round out company’s OptiBond solutions for variation management. The OptiBond portfolio accommodates both retrofit and new installations for everything from simple flow monitoring to point-of-application, closed-loop control.
