The camera captures the intensity of the emitted light from the sample, which, through Beer-Lamberts law, is linearly proportional to the film profile thickness:
extruder, providing profile outputs up to 800 lb/hr, depending on profile thickness and fiber content.
Micro-Epsilon's thicknessCONTROL BTS 8104 system measures profile thickness of non-conductive blown film, including film used for packaging, agricultural applications, waste bin liners, carrier bags, freezer bags and shrink covers.
Also new from Zumbach is the UMAC ultrasonic system to measure profile thickness under water inside sizing tanks.
(Type V profiles include a synthetic retention sheet under the granular media layer.) Types III and IV also integrate well to allow seamless transitions across different profile thicknesses. Finally, these two profiles uniquely accommodate base-level irrigation, which delivers water at the root level (as opposed to surface spray or drip), minimizing direct evaporation and many maintenance concerns.
