Why We Call Our Machines ISO-Bar
August 7, 2018Categories: Education
An isobar is a line of constant pressure on a weather map. The Kohler ISO-Bar metering element provides a line of constant loading pressure on an applicator roll regardless of face width. Grooved rods are loaded via air pressure directly to the applicator roll and the rod meters the fluid volumetrically on the applicator roll with a uniformity that is independent of line speed. Application rate is easily fine tuned by rod pressure and adjusting applicator roll speed, rather than changing rod size every time application rate needs to be adjusted.
The ISO-Bar technology is what allows our machines to radically reduce film thicknesses of starch or other fluids, giving you the ability to accurately meter film thicknesses lower than .0002 inches (5 microns).
