Many facilities require temperature controllers to maintain set temperature points for various processes. At Baelz, we specialize in all kinds of control system components, including digital temperature controllers. Our temperature controllers are suited for applications across diverse industries and offer several benefits, including high performance, energy savings, cost-effectiveness, and more.
Temperature Controllers Explained
Temperature controllers control equipment such as heaters to maintain consistent temperature settings. They work by comparing a designated point with a sensor signal and calculating the difference between them. In addition to temperature control, controllers using these signal systems may regulate pressure, humidity, and flow rate.
Numerous applications across a wide range of industries use temperature controllers, including pharmaceutical, textile, oil refinery, and more. These systems maintain a constant temperature for facilities and products using a set point. Users can increase or decrease this set temperature as needed using external equipment. Once the temperature is set, the controller works to maintain it by sensing the current temperature and controlling it using coolers, heaters, or compressors.
Benefits of Using Temperature Controllers
Temperature controllers provide several benefits that make them suitable for many applications requiring consistent temperature control. These advantages include:
- Remote units don’t require other types of controllers such as PLC, operator interface terminals, HMI, and basic temperature controllers
- Mini-PLC functionality
- A single hybrid remote controller offers complete temperature control
- Loop control
- The ability to control and monitor two or more temperature loops
- Advanced functionality including soak and ramp control
- Algorithms and self-tuning capabilities, including PD, PID, PI, P, and self-optimization
- Better performance than separate PLC controls
- The ability to meet even the strictest temperature control requirements
Applications of Temperature Controllers
Temperature controllers have many potential applications, including:
Temperature controllers are often used in ovens and other heat-treating applications within heat exchangers, boilers, ceramic kilns, and furnaces.
The packaging industry frequently uses temperature controllers to maintain consistent operations. Hot melt functions, glue applicators, label applicators, shrink wrap runners, and seal bars often have strict temperature requirements.
Hoppers, portable chillers, dryers, and different types of extruding and molding equipment rely on temperature control systems.
To maintain a safe and healthy environment, many healthcare facilities and applications need temperature controllers. Equipment using these systems may include crystallization growing chambers, refrigeration systems, autoclaves, lab equipment, testing equipment, test chambers, and incubators. Temperature control may serve specific functions such as preserving specimens for testing purposes.
Food & Beverage
Food processing applications use temperature controllers in a variety of applications, including blending, brewing, cooking, baking, and sterilization.
