20 channel data logger in operation
The 20 channel data logger records in-depth temperature profiles

Temperature profiling system for kiln processes

The Datapaq TP3 data logger records in-depth temperature profiles and features up to 20 thermocouple channels and a ±0.3 °C accuracy for compliance with stringent specifications.

A 3.6 million data points memory and energy-saving operation allow for detailed data collection. The Datapaq Insight analysis software helps the user to quickly establish the correct firing profile for new products and thereby reduce both the reject rate and fuel consumption. It furthermore supports fault-finding and customized reporting. Users can connect various thermocouple types to a single logger.

Helpful for brickworks and ceramics manufacturers

An optional radio kit provides immediate insight into the process, allowing kiln operators to solve problems quickly before the next car is affected. It is powerful enough to transmit through thick kiln walls and from long kilns of 150 m or more. The software and the radio system support multiple loggers, enabling comfortable monitoring of several kiln cars.

Datapaq offers a wide range of thermal barriers to protect the logger electronics in a variety of applications and kilns. Specifically engineered barriers are available for floor, roof, and wall tiles, heavy clay, sanitary ware, and tableware. Their thermal capacity is sufficient to withstand high heat for the duration of the process, e.g. up to 35 hrs at 400 °C and up to 10 hrs at an average 900 °C with peaks up to 1,200 °C.
