For most industrial temperature measurements, the sensing element is never directly exposed to the process. The electronic element such as a thermocouple (TC), resistance temperature detector (RTD) or thermistor is encased inside a metallic enclosure, typically a section of stainless steel tubing closed at one end.
Process heating valves are automated with a number of technologies used to drive the movement of the valve — electric, pneumatic and hydraulic actuation, for instance. These operators normally have both automated and manual modes of operation.
An engineered infrared heating system that is used as a predryer or preheater is an effective solution for adding production capacity to an existing web processing line that uses convection dryers or a system of steam cans.
Use the 2017 edition of our industrial boilers selection tool to compare equipment makers and find those with experience with your industrial heating process.

Used for generating steam for power, processing or space heating, or for producing hot water to heat products or a hot water supply, a boiler delivers steam or hot fluid to the end use point at the desired pressure and temperature.
Eurotherm by Schneider Electric appointed Steve Schroeder to senior business development manager overseeing products PAC and E+PLC. He will work directly with Eurotherm business development managers in heat treatment.
Designed with a proportional-integral control algorithm to provide precise control to thermoelectric (Peltier effect) modules, the open board temperature controller can be set up for heat or cool and can run ramp-and-soak profiles.
Every Sahara drum/tote oven can be designed to meet Class A requirements. (NFPA 86 classifies ovens and furnaces in which flammable volatiles or combustible materials are present in the work space as Class A.
Thomas L. Green Prism oven can incorporate a Thermatec high radiant ceiling, a technology comparable to traditional firebrick oven ceilings. The material replicates the thermal emissivity and storage of firebricks using specially treated, anticorrosive steel backed by a high-density insulating board.
Line of temperature sensors is designed for application requirements with seal pressures ranging from vacuum up to 30,000 psi (2067 bars). The thermocouple sensors utilize technologies that provide optimum durability and performance in operating conditions up to 4200°F (2315°C).
Endurance Series includes three single-color models and one two-color model with extended temperature ranges and enhanced optical resolution characteristics. The line of high temperature ratio infrared pyrometers is suited for harsh industrial environments, including primary and secondary metals manufacturing, carbon processing, silicon production, foundries, welding, and rubber and thick plastics.
Bantam Series Macrowave dryer does not require plant cooling water or heavy electrical drops. Because the system is air cooled, there are fewer components, which reduces the preventive maintenance required.
