Melt Pressure Sensor and Measurement Solutions

Providing Innovative Solutions

Dynisco manufactures a wide range of robust mV/V, mA, VDC and HART-compatible melt pressure sensors (transducers and transmitters) designed specifically for the harsh, rugged environments of the extrusion and polymer processing industries.  Our instruments are distinguished by their remarkably bright displays, intuitive and high configurability, and ability to facilitate changes such as one alarm set to another, locally or remotely.
