Thermal Control Flow Meters – Die Casting
Proteus flow meters are used to improve die life, startup scrap reduction and productivity

Proteus flow meters are used to monitor flow and temperature at both the inlet and the outlet of die coolant flow channels. Die casters use the data provided by Proteus flow meters to control initial heat ramp, calculate heat loads, ensure sufficient cooling, optimize thermal control, and protect against coolant channel blockage.

The Proteus V7000/V7100 Series Vortex Flow Meters and the 8000 Series Liquid Flow Meters are both well suited for die coolant monitoring. The new microprocessor based V7200 Series affords better accuracy and the capability to connect directly to your digital fieldbus.
