A Temperature Controller is a device that is used to control a heater or other equipment by comparing a sensor signal with a set point and performing calculations according to the deviation between those values. Devices that can handle sensor signals other than for temperatures, such as humidity, pressure, and flow rate, are called Controllers. Electronic controllers are specifically called Digital Controllers.
Common Uses in Industry
Temperature controllers are used in a wide variety of industries to manage manufacturing processes or operations. Some common uses for temperature controllers in the industry include plastic extrusion and injection moulding machines, thermoforming machines, packaging machines, food processing, food storage, and blood banks. The following is a brief overview of some common temperature control applications in the industry:
• Heat Treat/Oven
Temperature controllers are used in ovens and in heat-treating applications within furnaces, ceramic kilns, boilers, and heat exchangers.
In the packaging world, machinery equipped with seal bars, glue applicators, hot melt functions, shrink wrap tunnels or label applicators must operate at designated temperatures and process time lengths. Temperature controllers precisely regulate these operations to ensure a high-quality product output.
Temperature control in the plastics industry is common on portable chillers, hoppers and dryers and moulding and extruding equipment. In extruding equipment, temperature controllers are used to precisely monitor and control temperatures at different critical points in the production of plastic.
Temperature controllers are used in the healthcare industry to increase the accuracy of temperature control. Common equipment using temperature controllers includes laboratory and test equipment, autoclaves, incubators, refrigeration equipment, and crystallization growing chambers and test chambers where specimens must be kept or tests must be run within specific temperature parameters. It’s very important to know and use when you create your smart home buildings.
• Food & Beverage
Common food processing applications involving temperature controllers include brewing, blending, sterilization, and cooking and baking ovens. Controllers regulate temperature and/or process time to ensure optimum performance.
