Improve your temperature control system

With process controls over 10 years old, it’s time to improve temperature process control systems. Temperature Control systems can serve a number of industries, including energy, aerospace, construction, mining, forestry, and rail, food and medical should be eager to upgrade, particularly because the incumbent system is producing inconsistent work.

A Temperature Control System Can Improve Heat Treat Equipment and Processes

The Challenge

Not getting consistent, repeatable results from its furnaces. You want more efficient and automated processes with data acquisition and electronic operating capability.

Increasing Demands

Whether you make forged parts, raw materials, finished materials, foods, medicines or related products for a variety of clients, you generally require as much precision as other types of processes as customers are increasingly demanding. Sooner or later, certifications or compliances will come into play. Customers will be very interested in your ability to prove compliance and your systems are in control. Temperature process control helps ensure you meet those needs. Older equipment can’t track things like set-point input values before. That’s another element we want you to manage.

Benefits of Temperature Control System Integration

A new temperature control system can have noted several beneficial results including:

Increased accuracy

The new system runs each recipe exactly and records the results. A company can also control which employees can adjust temperature settings, preventing operators from rushing jobs with higher temperatures or inadvertently setting the furnace incorrectly.

More speed

Authorized employees can preprogram any recipe it needs, allowing for highly accurate and fast running of complex processes.

More convenience

Authorized personnel can operate their furnaces from anywhere with an internet connection, or via a mobile device used even at a remote location.

Precision for the future

The new system can be part of a certified/compliance process should the need arise. The integrated software and advanced controllers automatically record each job and retain all data for verification.

The Results

You used to have to use all kinds of resources to provide oversight on temperature control. This will give you a heating strategy. You write the recipes you want and just select from those. In addition to that, you know exactly what every furnace is doing at all times.

You will also be pleased with the increased efficiency. You only heat product when you are ready to run production, and the furnace only uses the exact energy needed for each recipe. You will also save on staffing, as you used to have to schedule people to ensure the furnace was at the right temperature. You can develop recipes for each part/product you make, which is both convenient and precise. It’s doing exactly what you expected it to do.
