The fully automatic Temptrol Master stackable mold temperature controller now features larger pumping capacities and larger cabinetry than previously available. The controller (previously covered July 1998 IMM,
p. 128) offers a wide selection of heaters from 3 to 12 kW as standard, with customized units available up to 60 kW. Process pumping capacity from 1/2 to 71/2 hp is also standard. This modular system features removable legs
that mount into tubular supports to allow sturdy stacking. Like the old system, the new design offers easy access for serviceability and a simplified control system, which can also be remotely located. The Temptrol Master maintains precise temperature control within ±1 deg F over a range of 50 to 250F. It uses a plug-in style, digital readout, solid-state temperature control that offers two auto-tune algorithms for startup at ambient, and fine-tuning at setpoint. Derivative Approach Control minimizes
initial heatup overshoot of setpoint. Price for the mold temperature controller starts at about $2000.
