Temperature controllers increase pumping capacity

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.
