The Elcometer 215 is an easy to use oven temperature data recorder, ideal for measuring the temperature profiles of both the sample and the oven during the curing process. Logging both the product’s surface temperature and the air temperature in the oven, the Elcometer 215 identifies the achieved “Temperature Profile” and provides the User with information to ensure consistent quality. Suitable for powder coating, wet coating, batch and conveyor ovens, the Elcometer 215’s measurements, analysis capabilities and tailor-made reporting options generate comprehensive details of the curing processes.
|Oven Temperature Data Recorders|
|During the powder coating process the product must pass through an oven. During this baking (or stoving) process the powder melts, flows, gels and finally chemically reacts and cures. It is critical to the coating’s final performance and appearance that the parameters for both temperature and time at temperature are controlled. Failure to maintain the correct temperature profile can cause problems in the final performance and durability of the coating. It is imperative to ensure there are no hot or cold spots within the oven, and also that the temperature of the product being coated is sufficient to meet the technical specifications of the powder coating. Variation of the oven temperature profile from batch to batch will lead to changes in the coating’s life-time performance. Controlling the cure process will ensure a high quality product time after time.|
|Elcometer 215 Software|
|The Elcometer 215 is supplied with software which has been designed specifically for the powder and paint cure processes.
A “User Settings Wizard” is incorporated making it easy to add fields such as sample rate, paint type, temperature units, cure specification, probe names, date and time.
