Chem-Trend (Howell, Mich., U.S.), is expanding the availability of its DilutionIQ remote monitoring system to more customers in China, Europe and North America. The goal is to expand availability to India, South America and other parts of Asia in the future. Specifically created for customers purchasing Chem-Trend release agent concentrates, the DilutionIQ system is said to enable remote monitoring of the process for maintaining optimal dilution rates.

The system consists of a fluid meter panel and a display panel. Customers are provided with remote access to the DilutionIQ system through a web application, which enables status monitoring and the ability to view the dilution ratio and alarm history. The system stores historical data for every batch mixed. Alarm limits can be set by the customer, and outputs can be provided to communicate alarms locally.

“We created the DilutionIQ system to provide our customers with constant, consistent and connected real-time monitoring of die-lube and release-agent mixing system dilution ratios,” says Bret Miller, executive VP of sales at Chem-Trend.

The system is said to eliminate the need for sampling, a delay in knowing the dilution ratio, false readings, and the need for expensive instruments and hard-to-interpret calibration charts. The system’s mobile-friendly web application can be used to send alert notifications, based on dilution ratio range and no-flow conditions or no concentrate, to specific individuals via text message, email or both.

The company says that more digitization tools will be introduced in the near future for its customers.
